May is Employee Health and Fitness Month

Global Employee Health and Fitness Month is an international event designed to celebrate and promote the benefits of healthy living both for employers and employees. It was founded in 1989 and takes place every May. Employers are encouraged to plan informational campaigns and activities to foster healthy behaviors at home and in the workplace.

So grab a coworker and take a walk, do some stretching in the hallway and encourage others to do the same, make meetings active by walking or participating in movement. There are plenty of activities you can do to incorporate movement throughout your workday.

Sleep Survey Through Geisinger Wake Up and Learn

This is the link to the Combined Sleep Questionnaire survey. After completing the survey, you are given immediate feedback as to whether your responses indicate a high or low risk for sleep problems. Those in the high-risk category will be given the opportunity to complete a more comprehensive online survey (Alliance Sleep Questionnaire, ASQ). The ASQ, which is reviewed by a program-affiliated sleep professional, allows for the identification of specific sleep pathology, and includes depression and anxiety screeners. Participants are sent a personalized letter outlining the finding of the ASQ and offering strategies to address the identified sleep problem(s). (This is a confidential program-no one will know the results of your surveys except the Geisinger Wake Up and Learn Team).

You will receive 75 points for participating in the sleep survey program if you are participating in the Embrace your path wellness program. The Combined Sleep questionnaire survey must be completed by October 31st.
