What is Shift: The Awe-Some Edition?

Sep 7, 2022 10:03:01 AM / by Synergy Health

Shift: The Awe-some Edition is a four-week walking challenge and this year the theme is "Awe".

Awe is a difficult thing to describe but everyone knows it when they feel it. We experience awe when we encounter something new and vast.

Throughout this 4-week steps challenge, you'll be tracking your daily step count as you learn how to bring more awe into your everyday and boost your physical and mental wellbeing.

Each week there will be a different theme related to Awe:

  • Week One: The Power of Nature
  • Week Two: The Beauty of Art & Music
  • Week Three: Awe-Inspiring People
  • Week Four: Micro-Awe: Get a Daily Dose

Throughout the challenge, you will earn points each day by tracking the number of steps you take.

In addition, you will earn extra points by completing additional activities designed to facilitate your experience of awe. There are three types of weekly activities that will earn you points toward top individual or team status.

  • Mondays -  you’ll be given an activity to deepen your understanding and experience of awe.
  • Wednesdays - get your cameras ready because on Wednesdays you’ll be asked to upload a photo of something you find awe-inspiring.
  • Fridays - you’ll get to test your knowledge with some fun quiz questions.
