Let's make 2017 a healthy year together!

Wellness at Dartmouth is here to help you thrive and support your health and well-being in 2017. We are pleased to offer opportunities that will promote a healthy new year for us all.  We encourage you to get involved by completing some or all of the below well-being action items. 

Take an energy break each day!

Energy breaks are a short 2-5 minute break such as a stretch, a stair climb, a mindful minute or a quick walk that can help you replenish your energy, feel less stressed and fuel productivity. Aim to take at least one energy break each day. Looking for energy break ideas? Click here. Wellness at Dartmouth will be sharing an energy break tip each week - keep an eye out for ideas via VOX, Instagram and Facebook! Is your team struggling to add energy breaks into your day? Invite the Wellness team to your office to lead an energy break – email us at wellness@dartmouth.edu.

Sign up for the Wellness at Dartmouth newsletter and follow us on Instagram and Facebook!

Wellness at Dartmouth sends out a monthly newsletter that highlights health and well-being articles, food and exercise tips, and keeps you informed about upcoming events. Subscribe here. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for a fun way to stay connected and motivated!

Help yourself and your office be healthy!

Adding more movement in your day and staying energized is so important!  Use the healthy department toolkit for ways to help yourself and your department stay healthy in 2017.  And, check out our latest bulletin board posts; you could even use these to create a bulletin board in your department (we update our posts every month)!

Visit an onsite Health Station

Check your weight, blood pressure, and/or waist circumference at a health station location near you. Plus engage with the Pulse program app and sync your MAX device.  The Health Stations are open and available for all employees to use; you do not have to be a Pulse participant to take your measurements. 

Part of the Pulse Program? Take your Health Assessment by February 3rd for bonus points & get ready for some upcoming programs!

Earn 2,000 points for completing your Health Assessment by February 3rd (that's double the points!). To access your Health Assessment, click here (or after logging in here, select the "Programs" tab and click on the Health Assessment link). On a mobile device, click on the megaphone icon at the bottom of your device. Bonus points will be awarded in mid-February. 

Get ready for a week-long healthy habit challenge beginning on January 9th that's focused on the importance of routines.  And, the next campus-wide MOVE IT Challenge, Step It Up to a Better You, begins on February 6th!  Engage with Pulse at dartgo.org/pulse.

Not part of the Pulse Program?

Think Pulse is just an activity program? Have you heard something about the program that's holding you back? Hopefully these common myths here will alleviate your concerns!  Learn more about the Pulse program, including eligibility, here.  

It's not too late to join 2,500 other colleagues and spouses!  It only take a few minutes to enroll at dartgo.org/joinpulse.  Need assistance with enrolling or have additional questions?  Reach out to wellness@dartmouth.edu or 646-1184.
