Wellness Wednesday Tip #52: Keep the Wave of Healthy Change Going! Happy 1 YEAR!

     Welcome folks! Happy Wellfie Wednesday! Today marks our ONE YEAR anniversary for starting #WellfieWednesday and boy are we excited to have made it this far. Since its’ start, we’ve seen hundreds of photo tags across Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. What was once just two guys trying to spread a wealth of health information has turned into a greater team effort, and we are thankful for those whom have joined us.

     As a recap for those of you who may be recently seeing or using #WellfieWednesday, the initiative was basically started as a way to spread healthier habits, no matter how small or insignificant they may seem. Every single push towards a healthier you is an important one. Our hope is that these Wellness Sellfies (the Wellfie) create inspiration or encouragement to start or continue healthy habits, creating a community of health, and steering this ship (your family and your community) away from chronic illness.

     We’ve been told our tips are refreshing at times, coming from the point of view of a “real” person vs those social media famed fitness experts. Normalizing healthy ideas for the average Joe or Jane, again highlighting the smallest change makes a difference. Check out our latest hashtag posts to Instagram and Twitter below this article.

     Our tip this week is simple. We want your help in continuing to spread ideas and inspiration to those around you. So choose that healthy habit, snap a picture, tag it #WellfieWednesday, and give it a post.

     For those of you who have been with us since the beginning, with the continued dedication to spreading our message, we thank you. For those of you just joining us, welcome! And a special thanks to GetPT1st for featuring us as their Wednesday social media posts. We hope to inspire others together. Because only together can we make a difference.

     Thank you! And be sure to tag the WW crew members in your post (@PBernerSPT@Eric_in_AmERICa@AaronPerezPT@fitnerdaimee@DianaKlatt) and keep the wave of healthy change going!

#WellfieWednesday Initiative: First Month Follow-up

     Hey, Everyone! So after a month of pushing #WellfieWednesday and providing tips towards living a healthier life, Eric and I wanted to offer some insight behind the reason we started this project and give a summary of the tags thus far. Our mission for the Wellfie Wednesday Initiative was to help increase awareness for living healthier by showing that your efforts don’t have to be elaborate, but can be as small as going for a walk with your dog or eating a piece of salmon. We wanted to facilitate a way to share ideas with others who may be struggling with ways to start improving their health. There shouldn’t be a single rule book to follow for health; it should be individualized for everyone. So use these ideas to help build your own healthy lifestyle.  

     Up to today, we’ve had 82 #WellfieWednesday photos posted across Twitter and Instagram, each of them showing numerous variations of what wellness means to them. Check out the photos below to see what people have posted so far.

     No matter what you’ve tagged #WellfieWednesday, we appreciate your support and hope that you’ll continue to share. And for those who haven’t posted, we hope that we’ve at least got you thinking. We’ll continue to share tips, so keep an eye out for something that may help kick start your way to a healthier life.

Thanks again for reading and helping spread healthy living!
