On the Trail to Healthy Habits

Get on the trail to better health and wellness. Sign up for the Employee Wellness Program’s next health challenge—HealthTrails.

Individuals or teams participating in this eight-week program will go the distance tracking health habits: physical activity, stress management through meditation, sleep and volunteering.

“Along with a proper diet these factors contribute to your physical, mental and social wellbeing,” said Employee Wellness Coordinator William Erese.

Participants will earn points for their efforts and move along a virtual trail. As trekkers progress along a map, they’ll see postcard-style photos and vivid descriptions of that location.

HealthTrails has a social aspect, too. Comment on the message boards online or through the app, make plans with fellow employees to walk during lunch or hit the gym after work, send encouragement, and find healthy recipes to fuel you on your journey.

Plus, participants can sync their FitBit to automatically log activities.

Some 1,100 employees took part in HealthTrails last year. For more information and to register through July 31, visit cosd.healthtrails.com. The program starts August 2.
