Wolverine Wellness Update

Live Well, Work Well

New Programming for 2015-2016

Be sure to take a "breather" from the back-to-school madness and catch-up on all things WELLNESS! Contact Amanda Feterl [amanda.feterl@sibleyeast.org] if you have questions or suggestions!

Baseline Assessment #3

Thursday, Sep. 10th, 4-5pm

Main Gym/Commons Area, Arlington Site

Curious about some of your health or fitness numbers? Be sure to save Thursday, September 10th for the final wellness baseline assessment!

The assessment will be facilitated by a community expert. The numbers are for YOU! So, test only the items you are interested in tracking. The assessment will take 15-20 minutes to complete. Earn 5 Wolverine Wellness tokens (see below for more info on this program), a Clif bar, and bottle of water.

Can't fit the assessment into your schedule? Contact Amanda Feterl (amanda.feterl@sibleyeast.org) for a copy of the form and you can complete the assessment on your own time.

Token Program

Track your fitness efforts and earn rewards! It has never been easier!

30 mins. of physical activity = 1 token

It doesn't matter if you run, bike, walk, swim, canoe, or kick-box...all activities will be measured the same this year. Keep track on your personal calendar/planner, an app, or whatever method is convenient for you. At the end of each month, we will remind you to turn in your total token count. Simple, right?!

Reward levels are 25, 50, 75, and 100. Prizes are to be determined, but don't worry...they will be FABULOUS!

Support Groups

Reaching your wellness goal is always more enjoyable when you have a friend (or in this case friends) cheering you on!

In the coming days we hope to set up a Google+Community for each of the groups. If you signed up for a group last week during the all staff breakfast, be on the look-out for an email inviting you to join your group. If you did not have a chance to sign up yet, please email Amanda Feterl (amanda.feterl@sibleyeast.org) for more information.

Our vision is to let each support group take charge of what they want to accomplish this year. Use the Google+Community to plan, communicate, and share all things related to your group's interests.

For example, the healthy cooking group might share recipe ideas or plan a time to get together and cook freezer meals. If they decide to bring in a healthy cooking instructor that costs money, then they can ask the Wellness committee for money in order to do this.

But, that's just one example, so get creative and more importantly...get together!

Snack Shack

You asked, we delivered!

The employee wellness survey results indicated that staff desire healthy snack options while at work. So, starting this week, the Wolverine Wellness Snack Shack will be available at each campus.

Arlington = Main Office
Gaylord = Staff Lounge

All items are $0.50 each. The Snack Shack will operate on an honor system. We will do our best to provide fresh and/or healthy snack alternatives, but if you have a specific request or something you'd like to see added, then please email Amanda Feterl (amanda.feterl@sibleyeast.org) and we will do our best to honor your request.
