As many of you have heard me say before, my dream for Be Well Meals & Juice Bar is to create an amazing, uplifting sense of community that helps people gain a sense of inclusion and also live healthier lives.
I’m not a technology person, sometimes I rant about technology and have an overall disdain for how much it can frustrate me, but I also have to give technology a lot of credit because technology is responsible for social media, and social media has greatly helped me spread my message and connect with people.
In the present day social media, where there are boundless stories of cyber bullying and mean comments, I want to continue to use social media as an extension of Be Well Meals & Juice Bar sense of community.
It took me awhile to figure out what a “hashtag” was, how it worked and what it meant, but now that I know it can be helped to bring people of specific interests together I want to start a social media campaign with YOUR help.
For the next few weeks I will be running a #bewelltips campaign. I want to use it to gather the tips, thoughts and feelings of this amazing health and wellness warriors community. Once I’ve gathered the inspiration from the community I will spread it far and wide though social media.
So, here’s what I have in mind. Share your tips for health and wellness with us on social media with the hashtag #bewelltips on it and everyone who participates will be entered to win 5 lunches from our 5 for $35 program. The drawing will be random and will take place on July 15th. After the initial campaign I will be spreading everyone’s wisdom by continuing to use the hashtag #bewelltips.
Part of this community of inclusion is that NO ONE, myself included is perfect.We all have days where we slip, where we do things we aren’t proud of, but we have to know that EVERYONE has these days and does these things. Once we settle into the reality that these things happen to everyone and we are not alone it’s much easier to get past and move on. That’s where the second part of the campaign comes in. There will be a second drawing for your anonymous “oops moments.” To keep it anonymous you can enter the “oops, no one is perfect,” portion of the contest by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us what your oops moments are. We will then be sharing these moments, without names or information, but just sharing them so we all know we aren’t alone. That time you binge ate cheese at midnight. That time you secretly ate two dinners. Tell us about your oops moments so that you know you’re not alone.
We encourage anyone and everyone to participate, but unfortunately we can only offer the two prizes to Horry County Residents or anyone who will be picking up their weeks worth of meals in person since we do not currently ship.
Thank you all for following me on this journey thus far. For fighting for and sharing this health and wellness community. I’m excited to see it grow and flourish along with people’s health.
