The USPS Health and Wellness team is encouraging employees to join the Worldwide Wellness challenge, a six-week interactive program that helps build behaviors for lifelong wellness while virtually traveling the globe.
Employees can use their personal, nonpostal devices to log into the Worldwide Wellness website or download the program app to track physical activity and healthy behaviors, access hundreds of recipes and learn about travel destinations around the world.
Participants can record steps manually, by using a tracking device or by using an activity converter tool provided by the program.
Employees are encouraged to create teams of four to five members and get support from colleagues, friends and interactive message boards to stay motivated. Participating in small groups helps make the challenge more engaging and provides an opportunity for team building.
The Worldwide Wellness challenge runs from Sept. 13-Oct. 24.
Employees can register on the Worldwide Wellness website from Aug. 30-Sept. 27.
This voluntary challenge is sponsored by Government Employees Health Association, a provider of health benefit plans for federal employees.
Nonexempt postal employees may participate off the clock or during authorized breaks. Those with questions should email the USPS Health and Wellness team.
