I love the idea of using social media to inspire, and I truly believe that when we share positive, motivating and inspirational things, it helps spur more positive, motivating and inspirational things.
Put another way, I think inspiration is contagious.
That’s why I’m starting a #WYCWYC (What-You-Can-When-You-Can) Challenge.
The idea is to do at least one positive or active thing a day. Think after-dinner walk, trying a new class at the gym, squishing in a jump rope session with the kids after school, cooking dinner on a night you normally order in, running before work, or even walking with co-workers at lunch — whatever you can do whenever you can — it counts.
This is an inclusive challenge that meets people where they are. I want to inspire you to take advantage of the small moments you have throughout the day. No more waiting until you “join a gym” or “lose so much weight” or “have more time.” No more waiting for everything to be perfect.
We live messy lives and those who stop waiting for perfect are the ones who reach their goals.
To participate in the challenge, all you need is a Twitter, Facebook or an Instagram account. Share your active moment through words or photos and tag it with #WYCWYC.
Here are some examples I’ve shared already on Twitter and Instagram.
Just snuck in 2 miles while the car was at the shop! So happy I got a run in! #wycwy
Picked up from daycare in style. :) #wycwyc
A day off school in this weather requires a hike. :) #wycwyc
I mentioned the meaning behind the hashtag on Twitter and already a couple of people have joined in!
See… it IS contagious! And here’s the beauty of the #WYCWYC hashtag …
Now we’ll be able to search for it and be instantly inspired by seeing all the inspirational ways WE are doing what we can when we can!
My plan is to feature some #WYCWYC posts here on the blog as well. This way, if you are not on social media you still get a chance to see all the positive ways people are getting more active.
Follow or tag me if you like and I’ll also RT or share your posts. I’m…
and Roni on Facebook!
Let’s do this!
