2014 Weekly Challenge #28: Random Acts of Kindness

2014 Weekly Challenge #28:  Random Acts of Kindness

Being kind is probably a part of your every day life. After all, you have to be nice, in general, to get what you want and to keep the people you love happy.

But what about being kind simply for the sake of being kind? What about doing something kind for someone you don't need anything from, or even someone you don't know?

Practicing kindness, and passing it on to others encourages other to do the same thing. If we're all being kind, and doing kind things for each other, the world is bound to be a better place.

Weekly walking club kicks off Thursday in downtown Sacramento

Weekly walking club kicks off Thursday in downtown Sacramento

Back by popular demand, Kaiser Permanente’s Walk to Thrive walking club resumes for a new season Thursday in downtown Sacramento when the Capitol Mall Farmers Market reopens for the season. By walking a mile with a Kaiser Permanente physician, downtown employees can get their exercise, health information and produce all in one stop each week.

The program provides a chance for people working downtown to leave their desks and take part in coordinated walk through downtown Sacramento. It’s an easy, fun and low impact way to get exercise during their work day. A different Kaiser Permanente physician will lead the walk each week and be available to answer health questions.

The kickoff event on May 8 will begin at 10am, followed by the walk at 11:45am. Sacramento Kings dancers and Kings mascot Slamson will be there to meet and greet all the walkers.

The Yolo County Health Department, through the Healthy Yolo campaign, is working on the Healthy Yolo 2014 Community Health Assessment.  The Community Health Assessment is the process used to examine the health of Yolo County and to identify areas where organizations, policy-makers and residents can work together to improve our community’s health.  Gathering and reviewing statistical information, such as the rate of deaths from heart disease and prevalence of risk factors that affect health outcomes, is complete.  The next step is to share this information with residents and seek their input regarding the health of our community.

2014 Weekly Challenge #12: Declutter and get ready to SWAP!

This week’s challenge is to de-clutter your closets!

The Mama Bootcamp Clothing Swap is coming soon - Sunday May 4, 2014 to be exact!  Clear your closet and bring clothing to your  Bootcamp Coach.  All the Mamas will be given an opportunity to "shop" through the donated items on May 4 and take what they need to fit their healthier bodies.  You don't need to donate to shop, but the more donations we have, the more variety and opportunity there will be.
