Call to Health challenges offer members multiple ways to combat social isolation by reaching out to others, while taking control of their own well-being.
With stay-at-home orders enacted in many places, millions of Americans are cut off from their family, their friends, and their normal routines. Not surprisingly, many people report feeling lonely and isolated as a result. Answering the Call to Health* provides a framework to reach out and care for your loved ones and your community, as well as to care for yourself, during these challenging times.
New Call to Health activities are now underway to help you connect with others and encourage you to practice self-care. Here are just a few:
Log on to the Call to Health website to check out the above challenges along with dozens of others, including Hand-washing Gratitude Practice, Cultivate Your Green Thumb, Tame Stress with Healthy Eating, and more. Most challenges are no-cost activities you can do at home or outdoors while maintaining a safe distance from others. Many can be done with your family to help build a sense of togetherness. And if you’re married, your covered spouse can register and answer the call, too.
Remember, the goal of Call to Health is to help you be your best, so you can not only cope during these unprecedented times but ultimately thrive.
*Call to Health is available to employees and their spouses with medical coverage through the Board of Pensions; it is not available to members enrolled in Triple-S, GeoBlue, or the Medicare Supplement Plan.
