Activities

You earn a variety of points during the Wellness Workdays challenge by engaging in any of the wellness activities described below. These activities were selected because they can be performed in a short period of time, within or near your work location, and are related to evidence-based health benefits. 

How to succeed at this challenge:

  • Review all of the activities in each of the categories below. We know that all workday activities may not be included in our categories and we anticipate these will change each semester.
  • Complete a minimum of 3 activities per week, but preferably engage in 1-2 activities per day (Earn variety bonus points each week by completing 1 task from each category!)
  • Enter your points on time (by close of business the following Tuesday)
  • Take at least one photo of your wellness activities to upload each week (Earn bonus points with more photos!)
