The "i" and "a" in
"Olymp-i-a" stand for positive "ideas" and "actions."
The Challenge is a simple exercise. In the Challenge we practice positive ideas and actions
for peace, green-living, and health and we try to make this practice part of our daily routine (ideally for at least 21 to
30 days). Each day matters. The more we practice, the stronger we become. It is important to take the first step
and get started.
Choose positivity. Think and do positivity. Be
positive in peace, green-living, and health! We can make the world a better place!

Children and Youth:
It is especially important to help children and youth practice and strengthen habits of compassion,
empathy, positive awareness and life skills in peace, green-living, and health. Find resources here. Older youth and adults can share positive ideas and actions with children in words and actions they can understand. We
can support children to help them write and draw about their own positive ideas and actions. Make the practice fun.
Our children are our future. The earlier children begin the practice, the stronger they become and positivity becomes part
of everyday life.
Think of each day as a fun "treasure hunt" for peace, green-living, and health.
Notice what you do and what's happening around you and in your world. When you find something interesting relating to
peace, green-living, or health, try to learn a little more about it or take some action about it.
Take the Challenges on this website. Or, just write down your positive idea or action for
the day (and the day's date) in a notebook, or type it into your cell phone via a "note" app. You can post
your positive idea or action through social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. It only takes a few minutes.
It is easy to make it happen. Do this as often as you can over time. Daily is best! You will create a living journal
of your positive ideas and actions.
