The Self-Care Challenge

Take the confusion and complexity out of managing your well-being with this simple yet holistic health and wellness program.

Odds are, you don't have a solid self-care routine ... that's likely because you don't know how to be healthy.

  • Less than 3% of people are living a healthy lifestyle¹ 
  • Over 80% of people are confused about what a healthy lifestyle is²
  • Tens of millions of people worldwide die from preventable conditions³

Self-care simplified

The Self-Care Challenge is a minimalist well-being program that clears up the confusion and helps you make relatively small lifestyle changes that bring about significant improvements to your overall health. 

An integrative approach to health & wellness

The holistic program is built around 11 topics that correspond to 11 of the most important elements of health and wellness. Each topic offers an easy and efficient action plan for setting and achieving moderate goals. 

The content draws from both mainstream and alternative concepts and therapies, for an integrative approach to enhancing your physical and mental health.  Moreover, the program is built on science-backed studies derived from reputable health and wellness authorities. 

Do you want to merely survive ... or thrive?

Just like any other human being, you have an innate drive to survive and thrive. Surviving is living or existing, while thriving is developing and progressing in life.

Though the terms health and wellness are often used interchangeably they actually mean different things. To distinguish them, health is what you need to survive, and wellness as what you need to thrive.

The 11 pillars covered in the Self-Care Challenge correspond to the most important elements of health (surviving) and wellness (thriving). 

Health Pillars

  • Eat Healthy
  • Sleep Better
  • Hydrate Enough
  • Exercise Regularly
  • Manage Stress
  • Avoid Vices
  • Get Checkups
  • Stay Safe 

Wellness Pillars

  • Be Mindful
  • Pursue Purpose
  • Create Balance

Testimonial

I followed the generic health recommendations we all hear — eat healthy and exercise — and only thought about my health once a year at my annual checkup. Little did I know that there’s so much more to looking out for my well-being than this half-hearted approach. Aja’s program is simple but also comprehensive. It helps you answer the question we all think we know (but really don’t): what does it mean to be healthy?

Reach your goals within 30 days

The program is structured into three components (Educate, Evaluate, Implement) designed to help you set and reach a health and wellness goal within one month. 

Educate  

The program kicks off with an 11-day educational e-course to jumpstart your personal resolution to live healthier by familiarizing you with each of the 11 core pillars of health and wellness. 

This e-course introduces actionable ways to make lifestyle changes that will improve your health by summarizing the most pertinent concepts from each topic. It's delivered in an email format, however all of the information sent via email is also accessible on the course platform. 

Evaluate 

It’s not feasible to try to improve every aspect of your well-being at one time. That’s why this program includes an evaluation tool to help you prioritize where to start. 

At any point you’ll be able to take the health and wellness assessment to help you determine the goal you want to focus on. The evaluation tool will recommend which of the 11 pillars to start with. After working on a pillar, you can retake the assessment to determine a new goal. 

Implement 

After the education and evaluation sections, you’ll be ready to move into implementation. Each of the 11 pillars includes step-by-step action plans for setting and accomplishing specific goals.  Since it takes 21 days to make (or break) a habit, it’s recommended that you devote this time  to working on one goal.  

For example, if your priority is to drink more water, you'll simply navigate to the “Hydrate Enough” pillar on the course system and follow the plan for building better habits in this particular area. 

If you want to go beyond the action plan and set/achieve more aggressive goals, you’ll have access to a repository of supplemental resources that will guide you to the right place for reliable information (vs. you having to do the research yourself).

These resources include reading recommendations and services from the most reputable authorities on a given topic (e.g. books, articles, apps, websites, podcasts, etc.).

Take control of your well-being

Modern times have brought us modern conveniences that have improved our lives in many ways — but not without tradeoffs.

As a result, self-care is a dilemma for millions of people — and the available body of knowledge only causes confusion that often leads to harmful actions with good intentions — or worse, inaction. 

With this program you’ll be empowered to take action and exert control over the factors that impact your well-being with: 

  • An integrative roadmap for managing all aspects health and wellness 
  • A simple method for setting and prioritizing your personal goals 
  • A clear and concise set of science-backed recommendations 
  • A set of step-by-step action plans for each of the pillars 

Take the challenge now with no risk

Once you enroll you have 30 full days to try it out with our 100% refund guarantee.
