WELLABLE HAPPINESS CHALLENGE; HR Faculty Staff News; March 1, 2021

Being happy and healthy go hand-in-hand, because happiness not only FEELS good, it IS good for overall health and well-being! It is one thing to know what it feels like to be happy, but understanding its valuable impact on health and how to achieve happiness is key.  

This challenge provides an opportunity for participants to learn about the many health benefits of happiness and different ways to channel it, including engaging in regular physical activity. Through weekly health tips and practicing seven unique Happy Habits, participants will learn to flex their emotional muscles along with their physical muscles.  

This four-week challenge will run from April 5, 2021 through May 2, 2021. It is open to all full and part time faculty and staff. Active participants will be eligible for random drawings to keep you motivated and support your wellness goals. Winners will be announced throughout the challenge. 

Completing this challenge is also worth 20 Tier 2 points for those participating in the Wellness Your Way Rewards Program. To qualify for Tier 2 points, employees must maintain at least 65% participation over the four weeks. Please note that all Wellable challenges focus on physical activity along with the theme for that challenge.
