March's "Mindful Eating" Challenge

March's "Mindful Eating" Challenge

QUIZ FOR MARCH: March's Mindful Eating Quiz

Healthy Food

This month's challenge focuses on where, when, how, what and why you are eating.

We want you to be more mindful with your eating throughout the month of March!

Please Choose one of these mindful eating habits to work on for the month of March:

Where: Sit down! Eating should be done in a dedicated space without distraction, ideally at a comfortable table. Avoid eating in front of the TV, at a computer, or in the car.

When: First and most importantly, eat when you are hungry. Most of us do well with a routine, and your body will appreciate knowing that it can expect to be fed!

How: Slowly – enjoy the smell, texture, and taste! Aim to chew for 10-15 seconds per bite.

What: While the food itself may greatly vary, we can all benefit from paying attention to the amounts we eat..

Why: Aim to eat only when you are hungry! We can positively impact our health by simply eating when we are hungry and stopping when we’re full. Don't forget to take the quiz at the end of the month to make sure you receive credit for completing the challenge!

Here is the flyer that goes into a little more depth on Mindful Eating: Mindful Eating (2).pdf

Also this is a great little diagram that you can use to help you better understand mindful eating

Gimme “Be a Wise Consumer" October 2017

The ChallengeComplete the Qualtrics Course "Be a Wise Consumer". 

Here is the link: Be a Wise Consumer Qualtrics Course

The October challenge is a little different from the previous years. Our focus this month is on the Qualtrics Course "Be a Wise Consumer". We are going to include all the links from the Qualtircs course on this page. That way you can access it all later, if you need to.

**If you are not on district insurance but are eligible for it and want to participate we highly suggest you take the Qualtrics course and complete the preventative exam. The course has some questions that are designed specifically for those on district insurance. You will still get credit for just completing the course regardless of your answer (for those not on district insurance but who are eligible for district insurance).

Why being a Wise Consumer is Important:

Being a Wise Consumer is a lot easier than people think. Regardless of your insurance plan there are things you can do to lower your health care costs.

Here are a few ideas:

-Preventative Care: By having a Prevenative exam you can eliminate many future costs/ problems. 

 -RX: Ask your doctor if there is a generic prescription.

-Teladoc, or other over the phone doctor visits: Did you know you can talk to a physican over the phone and it costs under $50 dollars?

This course will teach you how to "Be a Wise Consumer" and provide you with the necessary resrouces to do so. We hope the rest of October treats you well! Please let your Wellness Specialist Rep know if you have any questions. Thank you! 

 Your success will be reported by Completing the Qualtrics Course: Be a Wise Consumer Qualtrics Course

Road to Wellness--For employees opting for District Health Insurance

The “Road to Wellness” program is intended to positively impact the health of District employees.  Employees opting for District health insurance should complete the following two items:

  • Complete the "Be a wise consumer" online educational piece.  As subscribers to a consumer driven health plan, do we know the most cost effective care?  Do we know the right time to get care?  Do we know the right place to get care?  Do we know the right care?  Go to: Be a Wise Consumer Qualtrics Course.  Use your Nebo Email to start the course.

Employees who complete the two items by February 1, 2018 will see no change to their pay.  Employees who choose not to participate will be assessed a “non-participation payroll deduction” of $40 per month from February to June or until participation is verified.  Any funds that are generated through “non-participation payroll deductions” will go directly to the Wellness Plan Fund and be used to promote employee wellness.


Preventative Exam

Important announcement on Preventative Exam:  In most situations, the employee will only have to complete a Preventative Exam every other year.  If the "return date" (filled in by the doctor--or one year) is after June 1, the employee will be given credit for the next school year.  If you complete your exam yearly, complete the form each year.
