During the winter and holiday months, grief, stress, and overall mental health distress can weigh heavily on folks. Boosting our physical health helps to improve our mental health, and in turn can save lives.
Imagine Zero of Weld County’s Move Through the Darkness Challenge, sponsored by North Range Behavioral Health, was created to encourage people to support their wellbeing through physical activity and time spent outdoors. This 2-month-long, self-led, inclusive, no-cost event creates a community around building skills and habits that can have a positive impact on mental wellness during the winter months. Throughout the challenge, participants are also connected with resources that educate them on the various dimensions of wellness and get them moving through dark times.
