Wellness is composed of more than eating right and exercising.  With that in mind, the Zest Wellness program is designed to encourage members to live healthier in all areas of our lives- not just tracking steps!  There are countless ways to keep track of your healthy behavior on Virgin Pulse.  It's all customized to fit your needs, whether you need some motivation to eat right or boost your savings account.   

The best part is, all of the features can be accessed right from your Virgin Pulse app! Visit the How to Earn page in your Virgin Pulse account for a comprehensive list of earning opportunities.    Read on for a refresher so you can reach the next level this quarter!

This survey will help you set a baseline for your current health status, and will help you identify which areas you can focus on to improve.  Complete the health assessment once each year for 1000 points.  Always discuss any concerns with your doctor before making any lifestyle changes.

DAILY CARDS

Daily cards are well-being tips based on your goals and interests. Receive 20 points per card each day, and earn more for making it a habit.  You'll receive 100 points for completing 10 days a moth, and 200 points for completing 20.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

Wear your compatible activity tracker and watch the points add up! Every 1,000 steps you take will earn you 10 points.  If you meet your goal of 7,000 to 10,000 steps for 20 days out of the month, you are rewarded with up to 500 more bonus points.

HEALTHY HABITS

Whether your goal is to increase your activity, reduce stress, or save money, there is a healthy habit tracker for you.  Choose your areas of interest, and earn 10 points for tracking up to three habits every day.  Once again, you will receive a bonus for making it a lifestyle- up to 300 bonus points!
