Northern Colorado offers many adventures: the tranquility of chirping birds and gentle breezes rippling through the Aspen trees during a slow, peaceful walk at sunset to endless smiles and pounding hearts as raging whitewater smacks your face while cutting down the Poudre.
Each day, we have hundreds of opportunities to be healthier, physically and mentally. And let’s face it, we all want to be happier.
Your 10-minute Facebook break at work could have been a 10-minute walk around the building.
Remember the angry person at the store? Next time, give her a big smile and see what happens.
Take a look at your dinner plate. How could you make it more colorful?
Smiles and hugs, good food, sunset walks and whitewater adventures help us achieve better health.
Keeping track of healthy habits can increase motivation and optimism. That’s why we created HealthyU Adventures.
The HealthyU Adventures app helps you get healthy and happy by allowing you to record healthy habits and earn points.
Best of all, it’s local. We added a “find activities near me” tab that will show you the nearest northern Colorado park or recreation center.
You can rack up points by:
- Drinking a glass of water = 2 points.
- Laughing hard = 2 points.
- Going for a swim = 3 points.
- Posting your evening walk at Overland Park on Facebook = 1 point + 3 points for walking.
And more. By gaining points and moving up levels, you grow a Colorado Blue Spruce tree and eventually, a forest.
We all need a little adventure. Why not keep track and have some fun?
Now get out there and start a new adventure.
The free HealthyU Adventures iPhone app is available now at the iTunes App store.
