This Energy challenge aims to boost energy levels enabling participants to get the most out of life, both at home and at work. Energy imbalance leads to higher levels of illness and obesity, reduced creativity, decision making and innovation. Our energy levels dictate what we do and how well we do it.
Expectation to deliver has never been higher and yet 75% of the working population wakes up exhausted each day. Most of us are trying to be as productive as possible but are running out of the critical resource that makes everything happen – energy. The energy challenge involves thinking about your meals, sleep, movement, rest, recuperation and work life balance. Making simple daily choices such as eating regularly will not only boost your energy, it will rejuvenate your life.
The key to energy management is to live each day with a clear rhythm. Have peaks of high activity (work hard, burn energy) and troughs of recuperation (breaks, relaxation, re-energising, re-fuelling, and slow pace). Most people who have joined the challenge feel fitter, more positive, have higher energy levels and feel more engaged at work or home.
The Energy Challenge requires participants to monitor 7 essential elements daily using the WELL121 app:
- Healthy eating
- Work life balance
Both synced data from other apps, and data manually input on the Log are included. The challenge leaderboard will track the WELL121 Score which uses exercise, sleep, nutrition and hydration data to give a cumulative daily score out of 100.
