How about TRI-ing a long distance triathlon this winter? Wellness Options at Work is pleased to bring back TRI the Challenge to all faculty and staff. Instead of a one day event, our triathlon, can be completed in 4, 6, or 8 weeks, you decide.

Promoting sustainable behavior change in our patients and ourselves is the core of what we do as health care professionals. This week let’s look at the current research on behavior change.

It’s the third week of January; holiday excitement, days off and celebrations are over. We begin 2016 with anticipation, best intentions and maybe some New Year’s Resolutions. Why are “resolutions” so likely to fail? According to Deepak Chopra, MD, more than 40 % of Americans make New Year’s Resolutions to improve health annually, and nearly half have failed by seven months.
Habit Change That Really Works explores this issue. Each week you will receive an email directing you to our blog. After reading the blog post please view the video conversation featuring a Motivational Interview approach around starting a new habit.
We hope you find the information valuable both personally and professionally. We would really like to use the comment section of our blog page to foster an interactive discussion about habit change, so please comment!
Many of us have exercising as one of our new years resolutions. This year we are offering you the chance to get started early to help you successfully change your movement habits. Over the next three weeks we will show you 14 simple exercises you can do at home. Each weekday we will publish a new exercise for you to try. Perform that exercise for about 30 seconds. Each day you have a new exercise to add. By the end of the three weeks you will have 14 exercises to string together into an approximately 7 minute routine.
Easy to fit into your day and a great way to get up and get moving!
