New Year's Resolutions Face-Off! 🥊 | Jan. 4 - 31

Team Goal: Step to bring your New Year's resolution/team to the top of the leaderboard

As tempting as it may be to pick 100 New Year's resolutions, studies have shown that sticking to one resolution at a time increases our chances of sticking to it. In this challenge, you can pick from one of 4 resolutions as your team/to focus on for the month, so pick wisely! You can choose from Be More Mindful 🧘, Get Moving 🏃‍♀️, Sleep More 😴, and Eat Healthier 🍊. Let's see which resolution makes it to the top! 🥊
