10 Healthy Steps to Boost Your Wellbeing

In the change-making, social good space, our own wellbeing is often the last bullet point on our list of priorities. It's all too easy for healthy eating, exercise, and self-care to fall to the wayside when you are busy caring for the world. Many smart, busy people get stuck in the mindset trap of believing that self-care is selfish or a luxury, but learning to prioritize yourself and to claim time for your goals is critical for long term success. With that in mind, here are 10 healthy things you can do everyday to boost your wellbeing.

3 Questions Your P2P Engagement Strategy Is Missing

It's Spring, which means the snow has melted, the birds are chirping, the flower buds are peeking out in bloom, and Dance Marathon season has officially commenced. As soon as I flipped my calendar to March, my Instagram and Twitter feeds were flooded with photos of college students dressed in luminescent colors and fanny-packs, caught in the camera's flash mid-dance move.

While these events themselves are usually 24 hours of consecutive dancing, many more hours go into a participant's preparation for the event. Take, for example, Dance Blue, University of Kentucky's 24-hour dance marathon. Marathon rules require that each participant fundraises a certain dollar amount beforehand and then dances for the entire 24 hours. Outside of the marathon itself, participants are encouraged to join one of eight planning committees and attend "mini-marathons" that are put on throughout the year leading up to the main event.

To some, that transaction – a year-long fundraising venture, countless nights spent planning, and 24 uninterrupted hours of dancing – seems laughable, but for many UK college students, it’s the formula for a fantastic weekend.

The Complete Guide to Leveraging P2P Networks

In the past, peer-to-peer fundraising has been associated with personal, low-impact crowdfunding campaigns — think Kickstarter or GoFundMe. However, peer-to-peer fundraising has been a powerful tool in the professional fundraiser’s toolbox for years. Whether it's linked to a large, stand-alone event like a 5K, or it's a year-round campaign, peer-to-peer is all about involving supporters to fundraise on your organization's behalf.
