Call to Health testimonial from Hallie Lindsay

"​As an employee of the Board of Pensions, I can share firsthand experiences with members and employers who may have questions about answering the Call to Health and the difference that it can make!"

It is a privilege to be able to take part in Call to Health. Each year, it is also a great idea to get started on your Call to Health challenges as early as possible. Being proactive can benefit a person in so many ways.

I have learned the importance of stepping it up, bringing my lunch to work, dreaming big, and being financially prepared for the unexpected. All the Call to Health challenges to which I have just referred unexpectedly benefited me in ways I could not anticipate. I have also benefited from the following challenges: Cheer Someone On, Clear Your Workspace to Clear Your Mind, Random Acts of Kindness, Practice Forgiveness, Go for the H2O, Know Your Benefits: Teladoc, Move to Boost Your Mood, Dental Exam, and Do Someone a Favor. 

Programs like Call to Health allow me to benefit from things I like to do (like noting what makes me awesome and following my doctor's orders) in a unique and rewarding way. The challenges allow me to strengthen my sense of community here at the Board and keep track of my overall health and financial fitness goals.

Call to Health is a fun and rewarding way to maintain personal accountability when it comes to maintaining my goals for well-being. Without a program like Call to Health, it would be easy to set goals, but be inconsistent in following them. Also, once a person has health goals that they regularly meet, assess, and reassess, they can improve their quality of life. A well-prepared person can also be better equipped for life's unexpected occurrences.

As an employee of the Board of Pensions, I can share firsthand experiences with members and employers who may have questions about answering the Call to Health and the difference that it can make!
