Have you met Justin?
We caught up with ADAC member, Justin Ehrecke about his streak of streaks, the bits that keep him motivated, and practical advice for anyone looking to be more active consistently.
And, today, he hits day 1000 of running every single day.
So many new things (90+, actually)
In the mood for something new? You can now Track or sync 90+ new Activities in the app. You’ve got Disc Sports, Dance, Cold Plunge, Climbing, and so so much more.
You’ll also find support for Recumbent Rides, Adaptive Strength Training, Walking with a Cane, and Walking with a Walker. Have other Activities you’d like to see on Any Distance? Let us know.
Kick that sticky goal to the curb
Prioritizing mental health in 2023 might mean embracing flexibility.
On new year resolutions, Sabrina Romanoff, Psy.D., a Harvard-trained clinical psychologist, professor, researcher, and Forbes Health Advisory Board member says, “Do not hold these resolutions rigidly. Accommodating change and new revisions to resolutions is adaptive.”
She also suggests:
Categorize goals between short and long term
Find congruence in goals
Anticipate the obstacles while setting goals
Find a way to transform your goals into values
A mountain you don't have to climb 🏔
Countless studies, journals, and experts cite the importance of rest, so snag some sleep, stretch it out, get a massage, open up a book, light up a candle — however you do it, rest.
And, if you're going with the candle bit, might we entice you with our first-ever Not So Active Club goody?
AKA, the Mountain(-scented candle) that doesn't require climbing, only lighting.
And, if you Track or sync a 10-minute+ Mindful Activity, you'll get $10 off.
