Don’t miss the first Change4Life® challenge for 2023!

You already have many reasons to access Change4Life – to earn points, bid on rewards in the reward store (with winners drawn each month), and participate in the quarterly challenges and testimonial draws. And now, new for 2023, you can qualify for a bonus draw when you earn a minimum of 2,500 points in a quarter (for a chance to win a $500 gift card) and collect bonus points when a health risk assessment is completed.

On top of all that, the newest quarterly challenge is underway – the financial challenge started on January 1 and ends on March 31. When you set up your Savings Tracker, you will earn an automatic entry into the draw each day you track your savings for a chance to win one of eight $200 gift cards. Get started today!

Haven’t visited Change4Life before? This is the perfect time! It’s free, and it takes just a few minutes to create your account. Access Change4Life through GSC everywhere. On the desktop, it’s within the “GSC Offerings” menu above the dashboard, and on the mobile app, it’s under “More” and then “GSC Offerings.”

Reminder: Check out Tranquility by Inkblot

With the new year already in full swing, remember that Tranquility by Inkblot – a digital internet-based cognitive behavioural therapy (iCBT) platform that helps to manage mild to moderate anxiety and depression – is here to help you feel your best.

If you’re looking for mental health services from the comfort of home, this platform provides interactive learning modules and tools to help you develop positive coping strategies and reduce life-disrupting symptoms. It’s free with support from coaches for Nova Scotia residents 16+ (funded by the Government of Nova Scotia and Nova Scotia Health) and available at a discount for GSC plan members residing elsewhere in Canada and their eligible dependents (age 15+) – plus, it may be partially or fully covered under your benefits plan. Check out the recent testimonial below:

“For me, the direct human contact and accountability is key (...) I'm finding it helpful just to have someone to talk me through my thought loops and challenge me, and to have a place I can write my struggles down and evaluate them rationally (...) If you're not in a crisis but still struggling, could use some external validation or accountability, and are at a place where you're willing to accept some help and do some cognitive reflection exercises, I definitely recommend giving it a go.”
