IFCH and MVH Employee Wellness Challenge 2024

The new year is upon us and with this comes some great opportunities for setting goals and making healthy changes. Here at IFCH and MVH, we want to help you achieve your health goals with an overall approach to wellness through creating healthy habits. Over the next 4 weeks, we are offering a free employee wellness challenge that focuses on increasing fruit and veggie intake, cutting down on sweets and soda intake, getting outside more, drinking more water, getting adequate sleep and increasing exercise. This challenge is a point based system for completing each of the following below. Each week on Monday morning there will be a drawing for prizes.

To get your name entered into the random prize drawing each week, you must achieve at least 400 points that week and email the IFCH Outpatient Dietitian Kristi Stickley at krstickley@ifcommunity hospital by the following Monday morning by 7am with how many points you earned for the week. There will be a grand prize drawing at the end of the challenge for everyone who earned at least 400 points for all 4 weeks, so it pays off to be consistent! Wellness challenge starts Monday January 1st and goes through Sunday January 28th. Reach out to the Outpatient Dietitian Kristi with any questions.

Wellness Challenge Points 

  • Eat 5 servings of fruits/veggies: 10 points daily
    • Fruits and veggies are major sources of several nutrients that are strongly linked to good health. Fill up on whole food choices to reduce the risk of chronic illnesses.
  • Get outside for at least 15 minutes: 10 points daily
    • To promote mental health and decrease stress.
  • Sleep 7 hours: 10 points daily
    • If you go to bed at the appropriate time but can’t fall asleep, still count it. Also, feel free to add naps in if you are short on the allotted time.
  • Drink 64 ounces of water: 10 points daily
    • Water is vital for your health. It is necessary for temperature regulation, digestion, nutrient absorption, and body waste removal.
  • Exercise for 150 minutes/week: 20 points/every 30 minutes completed (100 points max/week)
    • The CDC recommends adults get at least 150 minutes/week of exercise. This can be broken up into smaller chunks such as 30 minutes, 5 days/week or into longer times such as 60 minutes a few times each week. Physical activity may look different for everyone based on ability, but some examples include yoga, walking, CrossFit, weightlifting, bike rides, running, fitness classes, swimming, etc. Whatever you choose, focus on moving more and being intentional.
  • One sweet per week: 60 points
    • For every additional sweet, subtract 20 points. Yes, you can go in the negative with this. (Example: Ate 2 treats=40 points, 3 treats=20 points, 4 treats= 0 points, 5 treats= -20 points, etc)
  • One soda per week: 60 points
    • For every additional soda subtract 20 points (energy drinks count in this too). Yes, you can go in the negative with this.

(Example: Drank 2 sodas=40 points, drank 3 sodas=20 points, Drank 3 sodas=0 points, Drank 4 sodas= -20 points, etc)
