The wellness challenges are designed to be fun activities that encourage you to maintain or adopt a healthy behavior while you compete against fellow employees. Challenges can either be individual or group-based participation. Participants earn reward points as milestones are completed. There are a variety of challenges available. Overall, the objective of a challenge is to help you achieve your health goal while having fun.
The “Meditative Practices” challenge encourages you to engage in some type of meditative practice as these practices help promote mind/body relaxation. Not sure where to start? Try reading a book, journaling, meditating, stretching, or taking a leisurely walk. Join the Meditative Practices Challenge to help reduce stress and promote relaxation. To successfully complete the challenge, you must complete your daily tracking activity for at least 20 minutes a day at least 3 days per week, for all four weeks of the challenge.
The “Evening Routine” challenge encourages you to follow a bedtime routine (example: stretching, reading, journaling, and/or taking a hot bath) at a similar time daily can not only help you wind down, but can also improve your sleep. For best results, avoid screens 30-60 minutes before bedtime, which ideally is 7-9 hours before your wake time. Enough quality sleep is important for good health and provides the mental energy you need to make the healthier choices. Join the Evening Routine Challenge to help prepare both mind and body for a restful sleep. To successfully complete the challenge, you must complete your daily tracking activity for at least 20 minutes a day at least 3 days per week, for all four weeks of the challenge.
