Holiday Wellness Challenges That Don’t Overwhelm


The holidays are a great time to help employees maintain healthy habits in busy times. Encourage stress-management with a competition or campaign to remind employees to do a few things every day through the end of the year.

Keep in mind, achievable goals keep employees engaged. Here are some ways our clients are doling out points in their “Keep Calm & Holiday On” competitions.

  • Relaxation: Take 15 minutes to meditate or relax each day. We like the help of Insight Timer, a free app with meditations of different lengths and topics.

  • Cap Your Steps: Take at least 5,000 steps every day - employees get the same number of points whether they take 5,000 or 50,000 steps.

  • Get Out: Get 10 extra minutes of fresh air each day.

  • Just Say No: Abstain from social media all day

  • Acts of Kindness: Make another’s day a little brighter by doing something nice.

  • Stay Active: Get in a 30-minute workout every day.

  • H2O: Drink at least 8 glasses of water.

  • Sleep: Get at least 7 hours of sleep each night or let each employee set their own goal.

All of these challenges are doable on your own. . . but if you’re feeling overwhelmed with all you have to do during the holidays, let us know and we’ll handle the set-up, tracking and communication all in an easy-to-use app.
