Holiday Health and Wellness Activities
You’re invited to join us for a mini-challenge to stay healthy in spirit, mind, and body this holiday season!
Don’t wait until the new year to (re)start your healthy living routine! The 8 Days of Holiday Health will challenge you to get moving or keep up your current momentum during the final days of the year. Our YMCA locations will be closed from December 24–26 to give Y team members time to spend with their families, so The 8 Days of Holiday Health is our gift to you! We’re providing ideas for activities you can do between December 23–31.
Check out a variety of activities we encourage you to complete during the 8 Days of Holiday Health! Use these eight days at the end of the year to help get a jumpstart on your healthy living resolutions for next year.
Random Acts of Kindness
In addition to staying active, we have random acts of kindness you can do each day of the challenge. Spread some joy this holiday season!
1 Wait a Little Longer
If you’re not in a rush, let someone go ahead of you in line at the grocery store or shop.
2 Hold the Door
Hold the door open for someone next time you come in or out of a building.
3 Pay it Forward
Next time you go to the drive-thru, pay from someone’s coffee or beverage.
4 Lend a Helping Hand
Offer to run an errand for a loved one and help them cross something off their list.
5 Get in Touch
Take a moment to send a loved one a positive, thoughtful message.
6 Get Creative in the Kitchen
Share a holiday recipe with friends and family. If you’re able to, try preparing it with them as well!

It may seem simple, but brighten someone’s day by remembering to say thank you.
