We're (finally!) entering the home stretch of the holidays. If you've been following along with our #SparkTheSeason challenge, we hope you've been creating and sticking with goals to keep you motivated throughout the month of December. But January is coming up fast, and if you're anything like us, you're probably starting to think about your goals for 2014. Whether or not you believe in making New Year's resolutions, you can't deny that January is a prime time to kick your routine up a notch after a few months of heavy eating, drinking and general merry-making. And what with the dreary weather and the warmth of the holidays behind us, a little extra boost of motivation after the first of the year can't hurt! That's why we’re introducing a brand new challenge for January, hot on the heels of our #SparkTheSeason challenge: #RockYourResolution!
Just like our #SparkTheSeason challenge, we're encouraging you to pick a goal of your choice for the month of January. The purpose of #RockYourResolution is to kick off a healthy goal that you can stick with all year long. No extreme crash diets or ultra-intense exercise regimes here; pick something that's doable for you that you can build upon into 2014! Every day in January, we will be posting daily tips and motivation on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ using the #RockYourResolution hashtag so you can follow along.
Here are four ways to participate (don't worry--you only have to pick one!):
1) Post to Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ with the hashtag #RockYourResolution to let us know what your goal is and how your progress is going. Then, we'll serve up tips and encouragement to keep you headed in the right direction!
2) Comment on our pins on Pinterest, or pin your own personal goal-related images with the hashtag #RockYourResolution.
3) Every day, post an image specific to your goals on Instagram, using the hashtag #RockYourResolution.
4) Finally, if you don't use social media, start a SparkStreak and update your SparkPage status or blog every day to keep yourself accountable!
So, who’s in for #RockYourResolution? Let’s start 2014 off right!
