Toward a Year of Wellness —
WASHINGTON, D.C., April 20, 2010 – “Life…supplemented” is motivating Americans to become the directors of their own health this year. The consumer wellness initiative, which focuses on the three pillars of health (healthy diet + vitamins and other supplements + regular exercise), announces today its third online promotion, the Year of Wellness Video Contest, as part of its ongoing America’s Wellness Challenge. The contest offers Americans a chance to win $10,000 in cash and prizes toward their own “year of wellness.”
Video entries from individuals are being accepted now through May 17, 2010on www.lifesupplemented.org/video_contest. Entries will be judged on clarity of expression, relevance to topic and creativity/originality. One grand prize winner will win a Year of Wellness valued at $10,000 – including consultation sessions with a registered dietitian, life coach, and personal trainer and a year’s supply of vitamins and other supplements—plus a $5,000 cash prize to help his or her wellness dream come true.
Entering the contest is easy:
1) First, register for the contest at www.lifesupplemented.org/video_contest.
2) Then, take My Wellness Scorecard, a fast, fun and free online quiz to assess your wellness according to the three pillars of health. Entrants are categorized on a wellness scale from “AlphaWELL” to “OhWELL” and receive personalized tips on how to improve their wellness score.
3) Finally, upload a video based on this scenario: if you were given a registered dietitian, life coach and personal trainer to help you stay on track in the three pillars of
health (healthy diet + vitamins and other supplements + regular exercise), how would you use an extra $5,000 to further improve your wellness?
David Grotto, R.D., author of 101 Optimal Life Foods, advocates for the three pillars of health to maintain a healthy lifestyle. “For most people, getting started is often the hardest part of healthy living,” says Mr. Grotto. “But it’s also important to consider a health regimen that you can live with. You want to envision a healthier lifestyle for the long- term by taking small steps today.”
In addition, the “Life…supplemented” campaign urges consumers to talk with their health care practitioners about staying healthy and to participate in online social networks that focus on wellness – so your health is top-of-mind. Consumers can receive motivational health tips and updates about “Life…supplemented” and America’s Wellness Challenge via Twitter (@wannaBwell) and Facebook.
