About this Challenge

For this week's Challenge, we're asking you to share what keeps you moving. What are some of the things that you do to stay active? Not all of us are professional athletes, but that doesn’t stop us from wanting to be healthy and strong. In other words, we want to focus on what makes you feel good, energized, and helps you release all those endorphins to get on with your day.

For some, that might be a yoga class to finish your day; for others, it might look more like having a dance break in the kitchen while cooking dinner with your kids, or an early morning run. Whatever it is, tell us what keeps you active, and how you find creative work-arounds for any obstacles—an old football injury, or a schedule so packed you have no time to dedicate to fitness—that might stand in your way. Now let's take a deep breath, inhale... exhale... and share your story!

Requirements

For your story to be eligible, it must be between 600 and 5,000 words and adhere to our Community Guidelines. Stories published on Vocal and entered into the contest up until July 23, 2020, at 11:59 PM EST will be entered for consideration. Official Rules for the Challenge can be found here.

The Inhale, Exhale Challenge is exclusive to Vocal+ members. To learn more and upgrade to Vocal+ visit https://vocal.media/vocal-plus.

To be eligible to win the grand prize, second place, or third place prizes, you must be over the age of 13 and residing in a country where Stripe is available at the time of entry. A complete list of countries where Stripe is available can be found here—winners will need to have a Stripe account created and connected in order to receive the prizes.

    How Challenges Are Judged

    There’s no one right way to tell a story. Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, and we want to see what yours looks like. Challenges are meant to inspire this creativity, and we want to see you tell a story that’s unique and authentic to you—but there are just a few things we look for across the board to be sure we’re judging every entry consistently and fairly.
