Everyone loves a good story.  It’s why we go to the movies and read books.  It’s why we love to tell stories and to hear someone “spin a good yarn.”  We gravitate toward stories that inspire us; stories that make us feel good.  And often, we find our own narratives quite interesting–if we didn’t, I don’t think Facebook would be quite as popular as it is.

This month we challenged you to share your 2013 Wellness Story with us, no matter how small or big.  We’ve been receiving some great stories so far that we can’t wait to share with you next month.  Stories about quitting smoking, recovering from surgeries, beating cancer, riding a bicycle 100 miles, changing health habits, losing weight, lowering cholesterol, training for a road race, and even getting a new puppy.

We want more!  Send your 2013 Wellness success stories (big or small!) to wellness@montana.edu or fax to 406-994-2391 by Monday, December 2nd and be a part of a great story!

Until then, have a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving from Montana Moves and Montana Meals!

As always, when you participate in our challenges, you could win stuff! Our monthly winners in October were Michele Cusack (above) from MSU Bozeman and Jerry Girard from UM Western in Dillon. Michele won a Yoga mat and bag from Montana Moves (and an opportunity to be photographed with a guy rocking a mustache), and Jerry won a pairing knife and cutting board from Montana Meals. Congrats Winners!
