How to help your buds live healthier, one awesome poster at a time

Okay gents, it’s time to play a few quick rounds of “Fill in the Blanks — Guy Edition.”

Question 1: When the going gets tough, the tough get _____.

If you said “going,” well played! Then again, if you said “to the nearest hammock,” we totally see where you’re coming from. Napping rules!

Question 2: It’s my way or the _______.

“Highway” is the answer we’re looking for, but we’ll also accept “patio.” Who doesn’t want to hang on a sunny patio at this time of year?

Question 3: Keep your eyes on the _____.

Yup, “prize” is the right response. Then, by tacking “…and give them plenty of screen breaks” on the end, you’ll complete one of four cool slogans the Don’t Change Much team has whipped up for Canadian Men’s Health Week 2019 (June 10 to 16). Here are all four of them:

Think Outside the BoxStay Hungry
Keep Your Eyes on the PrizeYou Are Going to Crush It Today

Pretty catchy, right? These posters also provide some easy tips on how to live a healthier life and feel better at work, which is exactly what Olympic gold medallist Adam Kreek delivers in the awesome new ebook you can download for free here!

Since you’re such a boss at filling in blanks…

…why not try filling in a whole poster! That’s right: Remove all the text from any of our four posters, and replace it with your own take on what Don’t Change Much and Canadian Men’s Health Week are all about. Is there an inspirational quote or saying you like? A phrase that gets your blood pumping every time you hear it?

The idea is to help other guys get fired up about living healthier, which is why we’ll be picking three of our favourite posters to share with the whole Don’t Change Much community on June 16. We’ll even design and print our faves, and mail them to the guys who come up with them. Sweet!

?All you have to do is comment below, type in your poster text, and hey presto: You’re that much closer to helping other guys make small healthy changes that can lead to big-time results. If you haven’t signed up to post comments, now’s your chance!

When the going gets tough…the tough get to design awesome posters!
