Comments from the participants:
Emily joined the challenge to ease the stressful moments of being a new mom. “This challenge was a great reminder for me to take a break and have a little me time (to relieve stress)”. She found that working out, reading, cleaning and shopping were great stress management techniques throughout the wellness challenge. Great work Emily!

Kathy appreciated the challenge as it motivated her to continue her healthy habits and stress management techniques. The techniques she used assisted her in her day-to-day life. She felt the healthy habits were necessary and helpful to have these ‘tools’ in her ‘toolbox’. Awesome, Kathy!
