in the news: the human project

For the next month, Scott is living in a glass house in the middle of the Mall of America. He has been challenged to “groove his body every day, eat better and encourage others to join him in this healthy lifestyle via social media.”

This is all for the world to see his every move – on webcam, facebook and twitter.  You can even vote on what activities he should do next. :)

This is part of the do campaign by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Minnesota – they have some pretty clever commercials, I’m sure the locals have seen it  – just inspiring people to do something active.  It’s a message I can get behind!

What I’m asking you for is your favorite ideas for staying healthy whether they are related to eating, movement or just inspiration – I want to share your ideas with him!

What tips would you share with someone starting a healthier life?

    1. ditch the processed food. No good will come of it.
    2. fruits and veggies – your grandmother knew what she was talking about.
    3. Find an activity you love – tennis, golf, running, gardening, running….and do it! It can be a great way to spend time with friends too.

    I could likely list a million things, but I am practicing restraint today. :)

  2. says

    I read about this! I want to go check it out. Sounds interesting.

    Someone starting a healthier life? Eat whole foods, move more, and don’t give up if you go back to bad habits. Get right back on track.

    What a fun way to get people thinking about their health!

    Advice I would give is to find excersize activities that you enjoy doing, and eat foods that taste good and are good for you. It’s not sustainable to run 5 miles a day if you hate it, or to eat bland steamed chicken and broccoli just because you think it’s good for you.

  4. says

    Eat mostly real food, and everything in moderation. :)

    With that said, I don’t keep junk in the house, so when I do eat it, it’s a “treat” and I actually enjoy it! :)

    I agree with ditching processed foods, too — your tastebuds will adjust to less salt, less fat, and less sugar in no time!
