Summer Wellness Challenge

You can still sign-up at the health department.

Hello all,

For our Dine and Floral Design Event next Monday, 7/22, from 6-8 pm, we need a head count to ensure we have an appropriate amount of drinks, food, and other necessary materials.

As a quick summary, there will be a floral manager present to teach each of you who attends how to put together floral arrangements as well as tips and tricks for floral design.  Along with the floral festivities, Danielle will be providing waters, seltzers, and healthy snacks to enjoy throughout.

 If you are interested email   healthintern@bolp.org or call at (973)270-2040 or 2036.  We hope to see you there!

Wellness Challenge Calendar

7/15/19 marks the beginning of our fourth week of the 2019 Summer Wellness Challenge, which means we are approaching a month of emphasis on the wellbeing of your mind, body, and spirit.  It has been great to have already seen so many of you at a variety of different events, and we cannot wait until the rest of you have the opportunity to join us in the coming weeks.  Here are the events for this fourth week:

 Wednesday, 7/17 (7:00-8:00pm)Cancelled due to the impending weather forecast.  We apologize for any inconveniences, and can only hope that next week will bring more cooperative weather.     Sunset Yoga at the Lincoln Park Community Lake.  With another highly successful week full of faces both old and new, it has become clear that this event is a favorite.  Luckily for all of us, we have another installment this Wednesday from 7-8pm.  A number of attendees have shared their improved mental and physical state following the session, so come give it a shot and find out if yoga can help to remedy your lower back pain, increased stress levels, or whatever ailments you may be enduring.  We hope to see you all there!

 Have a happy and healthy week, and as always, for any further questions, please feel free to reach out at  healthintern@bolp.org.


2019 Summer Wellness Challenge

Monday Campaign

Monday is the day most people are likely to start anew and get healthy. People view Monday as a day for a fresh start and are more likely to start diets and exercise regimes, quit smoking and schedule doctor’s appointments on Monday than any other day.
And a Monday start helps them carry out their healthy intentions for the week.
For more information on the Monday Campaign go to:
