I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all made New Year’s Resolutions that we haven’t been able to keep. Perhaps it was that gym membership you swore you’d use four days a week, realizing you were only going one day a week by March. Or maybe you decided to undertake home cooking as a means to a healthier diet, only to discover that your schedule is just too hectic for home-cooked meals.
Say goodbye to another failed New Year’s Resolution. This year, we’ve got incentive for you to achieve your health and wellness goals. Meet the Minnesota Monthly WellStockMN Challenge, an eight-week competition challenging our readers to invest in their personal wellbeing in 2013. Readers who best achieve their health goals will be entered to win a grand prize of $5,000 and two runner-up prizes of $2,500 to Ivy Spa Club. Plus, we’ll celebrate winners’ achievements at a final “Reveal” party with participants and sponsors. And we’ll feature them in a two-page spread in the May 2013 issue of Minnesota Monthly!
