Are you looking for a way to end the year on a healthy high note? Skate through the holiday season with Health for the Holidays, a new four-week wellness campaign. Register by Nov. 20. 

Offered through MHealthy’s partnership with The StayWell Company, LLC, a national provider of health improvement services, Health for the Holidays can help build sustainable habits related to physical activity, healthy eating, and positivity. Over four weeks, participants record health behaviors online to accumulate snow and create a whimsical animated holiday scene.

As a bonus, those who accumulate at least one inch of snow by November 20, 2016, will earn an MHealthy winter scarf!

Watch this short video for a quick overview of Health for the Holidays:

Participants can earn one inch of snow each time any of the following is achieved:

  • Exercising at least 30 minutes or accumulating 6,000 or more steps in a day. Participants can sync a Fitbit or Jawbone device or manually record their exercise
  • Doing two of the following in a day: eat a healthy breakfast, have five or more servings of produce, or avoid sugared drinks or late night snacking
  • Completing a simple thing on one day that can contribute to a brighter, more cheerful outlook.

Qualifying benefits-eligible faculty and staff can register for Health for the Holidays Oct. 31 - Nov. 20 and sign up as an individual or join a team.  Record health behaviors Nov. 14 – Dec. 11, 2016. 

In addition to Health for the Holidays, MHealthy offers webinars and other programs to help you stay on a healthier track this holiday season. Learn more.
