Let's keep going for gold!

by Megan Sherman, Health and Wellness Educator
Gold medal - "Go for Gold in 2020"

Earlier this year we launched a 90-day guide to help you get to Vitality Gold status but let’s face it, a lot has changed since then. One thing that hasn’t changed is that your health and wellness is still important.

As you reflect on how your 2020 goals have changed over the past few months, take a moment to check in on your Vitality wellness goals. It’s not too late to get to Gold status, and we’ve updated our 90-day guide to help you get there. New activities include:

  • A financial webinar series.
  • Updated goals for unusual times.
  • At-home workout options.
  • More options such as screening vouchers to complete your Vitality Check.
  • Upcoming Synod-wide Challenges.

Your homework: Review this updated checklist to help you set new goals, earn more rewards and keep going for Vitality Gold. Keep an eye out for next month’s email and updated checklist.
