Quarterly Activity/Steps Challenge

Being physically active is important to overall health. One activity/steps challenge will be available each quarter. Participants can set personal step or activity goals and are encouraged to increase their goals as they progress to subsequent challenges. Any physical activity can be translated into steps and applied to the challenge count. Wearable activity tracking devices and apps can be synced to the LiveWell wellness portal, or activity can be self-reported. Participants will earn 5 credits by accumulating 416,000 steps over the three-month challenge (~5,000 steps per day).

(5 credits each, maximum of 15 credits)

Quarterly Wellness Challenge

Wellness challenges allow participants to track healthy behaviors and work toward new habits. Each quarter, a new challenge is released as outlined below. Participants will earn 5 credits for completing the challenge criteria by the last day of the month.

(5 credits each, maximum of 15 credits)

Past challenge: Financial Fitness (February)

Healthy spending and saving habits are just as important to your wellbeing as proper nutrition and regular exercise. Financial stress can lead to depression, anxiety and trouble sleeping. With this challenge, you will take a look at your financial decision-making skills and practice small steps to building financial security.

Past challenge: Take Charge of Your Health (May)

You can make a BIG impact on your health by making one SMALL change and sticking with it! In this challenge, improve your health by making small changes to your physical activity, sleep, mindfulness and dietary habits!

Upcoming challenge: Fuel Your Day (August)

Two healthy steps you can take daily to fuel yourself to help you reach your peak performance: eat healthy snacks and take time during your day to stretch. Why? Healthy snacks can add fiber and

nutrients to your diet without unwanted calories. They can give you an energy boost during the day and prevent you from overeating at meals. Taking time to stretch relieves muscle pain and tightness, lessens tension due to stress and improves circulation, balance and flexibility.

Online Seminars/Webinars

Each month a new online seminar is released on the LiveWell wellness portal and is available anytime, 24/7.

(1 credit each, maximum of 9 credits)

Healthwise Conversations

There are a variety of “conversations” in an interactive module format to address both healthy living topics and diseases & conditions. Participants won't just get information; they'll receive personalized advice and a printable action plan to help them make healthier choices.

(1 credit each, maximum of 9 credits)

Wellness Fair

Earn credit for attending the CCHC Wellness Fair. Watch for an announcement from HR with details on how to participate in this event.

(3 credits)

CCHC Worksite Activity

Participants can earn credit for participating in a variety of CCHC approved activities. Each quarter, CCHC will announce a variety of activities eligible for credit. This may include workshops of various formats offered on relevant topics at the major organization sites (CCH, FH, North St, Communication Way, and more) and local community events (the HPHP 5K and Falmouth Road Race).

(3 credits per quarter, maximum of 9 credits)
