Welcome to Do One Thing!

  Meditation- good for what ails you!

Study after study shows that meditation for as little as ten minutes a day can have huge health benefits. According to the Mayo Clinic, "when you meditate, you clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress.

The emotional benefits of meditation can include:

Gaining a new perspective on stressful situations
Building skills to manage your stress
Increasing self-awareness
Focusing on the present
Reducing negative emotions"

Right here in Seattle at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance they encourage a walking meditation that involves a labyrinth. Read about it here
What is Do One Thing?

In 2013 the students of C-89.5 launched “Do One Thing”- a campaign to encourage healthy choices. We wanted to start a movement that would help people get started on healthy habits to last a lifetime.

C-89 is proud to partner with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in our Do One Thing campaign. At Fred Hutch, researchers seek new and innovative ways to prevent, treat and cure cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. They know that prevention is ultimately the best cure. Fred Hutch is home to the nation's oldest and largest program devoted to cancer-prevention research—an important endeavor, considering that many cancers may be avoidable by changes in lifestyle.

When people take control over one area of their life, they are more likely to take control over other areas. That means we can live healthier, feel better and have more fun! Besides, it’s way easier to start good habits when you’re young.

Together, we are asking, “What is Your One Thing?” What will you do to be healthy, happy, and contribute to the community? Share your One Thing with us! Help us to inspire others!
