Last year, we encouraged LCMS workers to Shoot for Silver, and boy, did we ever! By September, we were well on our way – 26.5% of LCMS workers at Silver Status or higher. That’s the highest ever! Well, this year, we’re marching past silver, and we’re going to Go for Gold!
The Vitality Team has learned the higher the status someone has the more they get out of the program (namely in regards to lowering their health risks, but also in rewards!). Hopefully, by now, you’re seeing that being healthy (and reaping the rewards) is 100% doable and actually kind of fun!
Over the next few weeks and months, you’ll learn from these monthly emails and online learning events that it’s not only possible, but it’s easy to reach Gold status! How to get to Gold will be broken down month-by-month and often will entail activities you’re already doing for a variety of parts of your wellness.
Your homework: Complete this month’s checklist. Then celebrate and look for more steps to come in next month’s email!
