You’re registered and signed in—now what? Begin by completing activities to build healthier habits one day at a time. Here are a few options to help you get started. 

Health Assessment 

The Health Assessment asks questions about your current health status and well-being habits. Once completed, your responses will be analyzed to generate a health score, show your health risks, and provide practical tips to help you improve. Complete your assessment by visiting Health. 

Pillars and Topics 

Looking to reduce stress, increase your energy throughout the day or find the motivation to continue progress toward your well-being goals? The Pillars and Topics section can point you in the right direction, providing quick access to many helpful tools and resources. 

Nutrition Guide 

Do you enjoy meat and potatoes, whatever’s convenient or do you indulge in sweets? Whatever you fancy, there’s more than one way to eat healthy. Access the Nutrition Guide to choose your eating profile, and we’ll serve up plenty of tips and recipes to help you find healthy and delicious options. 

Sleep Guide 

Sleep affects nearly every aspect of your health—from your mood to your ability to concentrate, and even your immune system. When you sleep better, you feel better. That’s where our Sleep Guide can help. From here, you can track your sleep patterns and discover tips to help you improve.
