Some say GOOD HEALTH IS ITS OWN REWARD. BUT...PEOPLE LIKE goodies TOO.
Ways to get healthy and earn points on Change4Life.
It's simple. You use Change4Life’s tools and resources to take small steps towards better health and earn points in the process. Then you use your points to bid on (and hopefully win!) cool rewards.
To get you started, here are some great ways to earn points:
Completing your HRA questionnaire allows the Change4Life portal to be customized to you. Your responses to the HRA provide the foundation for what you’ll get next – a personalized health “report card” with an overall health score, as well as a recommended action plan filled with targeted tips, tools and resources that help you take a “small steps” approach to adopting healthier habits.
GSC’s Stick2It™ medication reminder service helps you remember to take your medication(s) as your doctor and pharmacist want you to…. You can set up Stick2It reminders to receive regularly scheduled emails reminding you to take your medication(s) and/or refill your prescriptions. And you get points!
Similar to Stick2It, you can stay on track with your health related activities by scheduling health reminder emails for a wide variety of health activities, such as tracking your daily steps, physical activity, diet, blood pressure and many more. And you get points!
The health portal’s education modules help you increase your health knowledge. You can read and learn about topics such as diabetes, stress, migraines, and many more. And you get points!
The S.M.A.R.T. Goal tool helps you develop a personal health plan – no matter how big or small – and track your progress as you work towards achieving it. Using the S (specific) M (measurable) A (achievable) R (realistic) T (timely) methodology, you will be encouraged to make a personal pledge towards better health. And you get points!
Complete your health risk assessment (HRA) from April 3 to May 14, and you'll be entered into a random weekly draw to win one of 40 gift cards between $10 and $100 in value! Up for grabs are gift cards to popular Canadian retailers (like iTunes and Cineplex).
