Check out these new wellness programs through the NC Conference health insurance plans for a good place to start with New Year’s resolutions! The NC Conference health insurance plan has added several exciting programs to the existing wellness incentives to help focus and motivate toward a healthier you. For more details check out the NC Conference Wellness website and learn more about the three approaches to wellness through the NC Conference plan. The three approaches include:
- Healthy Eating – join the all new Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less (ESMMWL) 15-week online program to learn good, foundational information in an overall approach to weight management through healthy eating and activity. This new program will be one part of the 2019 Conference Wellness Incentives (WIN) program offering rewards for completing many activities leading to better health, including the BCBS wellness assessment, physical activity, healthy eating, and preventative medical care. You can earn $50 for completing the ESMMWL program by earning WIN points!
- Healthy Activity – if you are not already part of the Amazing Pace walking program, join by January 1 to begin tracking your steps and earning rewards for working hard to meet the 10,000 daily step goal as recommended by the American Heart Association. A new incentive has been added to reward participants up to $250 per year for maintaining a daily step average of 10,000. In addition to better health, you can also earn rewards in the Conference WIN program and learn more about why it matters in the new ESMMWL program.
- Healthy Minds and Spirits – from retreat centers to mental health benefits, the Conference plan encourages focus on healthy minds and spirits as an integral part of an overall wellness strategy. Retreat centers, programs, and a resiliency toolkit are available as resources supporting clergy and insurance plan participants toward better mental health.
The New Year often brings new goals and more attention to honoring God’s gift of health and the NC Conference health plan wants to partner with you in making resources available to support your hard work. We pray you feel God’s strength and spirit around you knowing that you are not doing this by yourself. God is with you, as are we, as we work together encouraging each other and honoring God’s great provisions of health, healing, and opportunity!
