This week's Whole Life Challenge Weekly Lifestyle challenge is to perform a simple act of kindness toward anyone in your world acquaintance or stranger, every day.
The WLC folks feel this is an important lifestyle practice because:
"No one is an island, yet it’s easy to feel you’re alone in the world — like nobody cares about the things that matter to you, like you’re left to take care of things by yourself.
It doesn’t have to be this way. In truth, it would be impossible to get by in the world without the often-unseen kindness of others. Much of what makes our lives better is the small demonstrations of care that people express through their everyday actions: the held door, help with a flat tire, a quarter for the parking meter.
By putting your attention on what others need, you contribute to the kind of world you’d like to live in — a place where needs are met through connection and kindness. The good news is you get to live in that world, too, ultimately receiving the benefits of your actions. So take a moment each day this week to be kind to another, and you’ll notice the more you act with intentional kindness, the more you’ll see it happening all around you."

Choose your dumbbell weight.
This workout is a spicy complex of pulling, squatting and pressing. Dumbbells are terrific for illuminating strength and motor control imbalances. They are also effective for developing core strength and shoulder stability.
Pick a dumbbell weight that allows you to complete unbroken reps. This workout is in the 8-12 minute range. The volume is moderately high, so don't go too heavy. You want to be able to move the weight well and quickly.
