December: Tis the season for Self-Care

“This is not the year to get everything you want. This is the year to appreciate everything you have.” It’s important during the holiday season to focus on spreading a little love and cheer to yourself. This is a season to be grateful for what we have. Check out some of the well-being programs that are available to you and your family to help you keep self-care at the top of your list.

Emotional Well-being Apps: The difficulties of this year along with the stress that some of us feel during the holiday season can take a toll on our well-being. Two new well-being apps, Sanvello and Talkspace- can help you get the extra support you need in a way that works for you. Find out more about Sanvello and Talkspace along with your other Mental Health resources here.

Omada (eligibility subject to health plan): This holiday season, we have just the thing you need to get healthy—a fresh start.

Nicotine Free: There has never been a better time to give up tobacco. Quitting tobacco has an almost immediate positive impact on lung and cardiovascular function, and these improvements only increase as time goes on. The Quit for Life program is here to help you quit and stay quit- for good. Find out more here. We have also linked a flyer to this page for you to share.
