As we enter a new year, it’s the perfect time to re-evaluate and start over fresh with a new set of goals. We all know 2020 was a difficult year. Lots of adjustments were made with setting up home offices, disruptions in our routines made it difficult to get work accomplished, home-schooling for the kids may have been a challenge, and other various restrictions that led us to be a bit more creative in our personal lives, made for an interesting year to say the least. The most important take away, is that we learned to adapt and we were able to move forward regardless of the challenges put in front of us. All the more reason to look ahead and set goals that can help us be more prepared to overcome challenges in the future.
However ambitious your new year’s resolutions may be, health and well-being are usually at the top of the list and really should be a priority. Health and well-being are the corner stone to a fulfilling life and are very closely tied to our ability to achieve personal success. Sometimes half the battle with our resolutions is building up the proper motivation to start something new, or we have the initial motivation, but we never keep the momentum going in order to finish. Motivation and a clear direction don’t always have to come from within, and we don’t have to do it all on our own. Motivation can come from lots of other sources. With that said, there are specific tools that can help get things into motion for the New Year and we think we have just the right thing to help get you started and keep that momentum going.
A Support System to Help You Reach Your Goals
When it comes to personal health and well-being we’ve got your back. EMI Health has teamed up with WebMD to create the ultimate wellness tool to help you achieve real results. A lot went into creating the “perfect” wellness program but it didn’t take a focus group or extensive research for us to realize that no two individuals are a-like when it comes to wellness needs and personal health-related goals. For that very reason, we have created a completely customizable wellness platform that puts you in the driver’s seat. You get to decide what’s most important and what goals you’d like to achieve this year. No more resolutions falling flat in 2021. Let this year be the year that you cross the finish line. Don’t just reach for new goals, but attain them.
A New Way to Stay Healthy
Let us introduce you to BE WELL. This is the ultimate one-stop-shop of wellness tools and there’s really nothing else like it out there on the market today. It goes beyond tracking physical activity or just helping losing a few pounds. Your overall well-being goes much deeper than that. As one of the many benefits of having a medical plan with EMI Health, you will have instant access to all the tools you need in order to achieve what matters most to YOU, and you’ll be able to do it when you decide it’s most convenient.
Get the Personalization You Need
Right off the bat, BE WELL empowers you with knowledge and choice. BE WELL is a digital platform based on your individual priorities, health risks and biometric testing data. As a result, it’s completely tailored to your needs, and can help you focus on specific areas such as improving sleep habits, stress management, improving mental health, finding the right balance in your social life, discovering new and exciting recipes, and implementing new workout routines, as well as goals related to limiting tobacco and alcohol use. If you’d like help managing a specific health condition such as diabetes, hypertension, high blood pressure, COPD or asthma, BE WELL can do that too. It’s all up to you to decide what’s important, and at any time along the way you can switch gears and let BE WELL know that your priorities have changed.
Most other Wellness programs don’t take your personal interests into consideration or even take into account pre-existing health conditions. That means other wellness programs treat every person the same and individual needs are overlooked-- Very impersonal and ineffective. With BE WELL you’ll get a personalized dashboard that provides clear direction for your specific needs and lets you know what areas you need to work on the most. You’ll receive a personalized recommended plan-of-action, helpful tips, reminders related to your tasks, and you'll have the ability to track and log your daily habits in order to implement lifestyle changes. BE WELL can help you navigate the intricacies of personal well-being without the headache of having to figure it out on your own and can help you consistently stay on track.
Part of the experience also lets you tap into personal coaching. You’ll have instant access to certified coaches that can help you set realistic goals, break through barriers, and provide a support structure. Health coaches act as personal champions who can provide support, accountability and clinically backed advice whenever it’s convenient for you. Sometimes we all need that extra push and now you’ll have access to the support system you need in order to achieve your personal goals.
Track Your Personal Health
In addition, BE WELL can serve as your central hub for tracking capabilities. Sync up a fitness device or app, and you’ll have instant access to your information within the platform. Blood pressure monitoring, step tracking, calorie counting, and sleep monitoring, are just a few of the tracking capabilities that can be synced from apps and devices that you may already be using. It’s all about convenience and placing the tools in one easy-to-access location, so tracking your progress is seamless and simple.
