Kicking off August 10 and running through September 8, Hope For The Warriors is hosting a 30X30 Mindfulness Challenge aiming to encourage civilian and military family participants to stay grounded during the ongoing pandemic and beyond.
The 30-day challenge focuses on the mind-body aspect of wellness including yoga, breathwork, mindfulness, journaling, and other aspects of mental well-being for up to 30 minutes a day. Registered participants will have access to daily exercises with a goal of building healthy habits and creating a sustainable practice. The content will progress over the course of the event, beginning with five-minute daily sessions and working toward 30 minutes of mindfulness at the culmination of the challenge.
“Across the world, we’re all embracing uncertain and stressful times and we at Hope For The Warriors are excited to share mental and physical exercises through the 30×30 Mindfulness Challenge to help bring a sense of calm and control within ourselves,” said Steve Bartomioli, Hope For The Warriors senior director, Sports & Recreation. “Even though the daily program ends a few days prior, this journey takes us to September 11, a day that warrants all Americans to stop and mindfully remember how the lives of our neighbors and our country were forever changed.”
Interested participants can register for the free mindfulness challenge at any time before August 10 or during the duration of the challenge at hopeforthewarriors.org/30x30mindfulness. For a donation of $30, participants can received a 30X30 Mindfulness Challenge t-shirt.
Also, with registration, participants can join the 30X30 Mindfulness Challenge Facebook event where people can post pictures of their progress and support others. In addition, participants have the option of creating a personal fundraising site supporting Hope For The Warriors and its programs.
