April 15, 2016 // WorkLife Wisdom: Build Your Own Health and Wellness Challenge
Looking for ways to get your facility moving? CaféWell runs several All Agency challenges year round, but you can also build a challenge just for your facility.
Steps to create a program:
Create a CaféWell login
From the CaféWell site, start from the “My Programs” option on the left menu.
- Select “More Activities”
- Select “Create Your Own Activity Program”
You’ll be able to setup the activity by:
- Participation – Individual or Group
- Activity Health Category – Diet and Nutrition, Fitness and Exercise, Preventative Health, or Stress Management
- Activity Template – preloaded challenge templates
- Activity Customization – set the name, start/end date, and targets
Some of the challenges available:
Exercise Daily – 2016
To take good care of yourself and foster a healthy lifestyle. Experts all agree that it’s important to make physical activity a habit you practice daily. So how do you fit exercise into your busy schedule? It can be easier than you think.
Pack a Healthy Lunch – 2016
It is often hard to resist the convenience of fast food – especially when you’re hungry and in a hurry. Resist the urge to settle for the added salt, sugar, fat, and calories that typically come with a fast food meal, by packing your own healthy lunch.
Take the challenge to pack a healthy lunch and document each day that you do.
Get more exercise at work. Challenge yourself and your co-workers to add at least 10 minutes of movement to each workday by taking the stairs, having walking meetings, or other ways you can find to be more physically active at work.
