What is Physical Wellness?
Physical wellness promotes proper care of our bodies for optimal health and functioning. It involves routinely carrying out behaviors that have a significant impact on our wellness (routine check-ups, a balanced diet, exercise, etc.) while avoiding destructive habits (tobacco, drugs, alcohol, etc.).
A few ways to get started with managing your physical wellness include:

Join the Mile-A-Day Challenge
Due to COVID-19, many in-person classes, meetings, and personal events have transitioned to a virtual format, which has led to decreased overall physical activity for many people. This year with the support of ADA Members Insurance Plans, ASDA is excited to introduce an all-new Mile-A-Day Challenge.
Participate in the Mile-A-Day Challenge for a chance to win individual and chapter prizes.
Total Miles by Chapter: Sept. 1 – 6
Total Miles by Chapter: Sept. 7 – 13
Total Miles by Chapter: Sept. 14 – 20
Submit Week 4 Mile Count: Sept. 21 – 27
You can get rewarded for taking active breaks throughout the day, so step away for your desk for a while and get moving. Log the number of miles you walk each week to be entered into a random drawing for prizes*. Each week the individual winner will receive a $50 gift card to one of the following vendors of their choosing:
- Dick’s Sporting Goods
- Under Armour
At the end of the month, ASDA will award a $250 Amazon gift card to the ASDA chapter with the highest average mile count by total membership and the highest average mile count across those participating from each chapter. These averages are based on your chapter members’ individual submissions, so make sure you encourage your full chapter to participate!
*Members must walk at least 1 mile per day and submit their total weekly mile count by Monday at 9:00 am CDT each week in order to be eligible to win. Winners will be announced each week on Monday afternoon. You may only win once.
