Healthy Parks TN users have definitely started the year off on the right foot! We had over 500 users during the #HPHPNewYearChallenge in January, with over 4,000 check-ins!
This was not an easy challenge to tackle! Creating a new habit can be tough, especially since we had such a variety of weather this January; however, you guys did it! We are VERY proud and impressed with the results! We got to hear many success stories and see awesome pictures in action along the way. Here are just few:
“I love that we have HPHP! I am getting fitter every day and have visited 5 Tennessee state parks so far this year!” -Tammy
“I broke both of the bones in my leg last August, and although I have been doing physical therapy, I have been having trouble getting motivated to do things outside of that. But thanks to the January challenge, I did some sort of physical activity almost every day. Last week, I hiked 5.5 miles!” – Haley
“I really can’t say enough about what a great program it is. Who doesn’t love to get rewards for enjoying nature? During this challenge in January, I kept telling my husband, “We have to go to the park and walk today!” The program provided motivation for us to get outside when otherwise we might have hibernated indoors. And we were happier because we did get out. The program makes a difference for us.” -Melissa
“We were glad to have found out about the program since we enjoy being outdoors and gives us an extra incentive to try new things like kayaking through our state park 😄.” –Joshua
We hope that this challenge benefited you in more ways than one. Creating the habit of getting active outdoors is more than just adding a new hobby, it is a behavior change. It is CHOOSING to make the change to better your life and Tennessee. Healthy Parks TN was created to initiate that motivation and use the resources that are available to do so. Thank YOU for delivering the dedication!
