  5. During the month you will mark how many days you reached each goal.

  6. At the end of the month, give the completed form to your wellness ambassador (by the 5th day of the following month). Those who meet their goals will be entered into a $25 gift card drawing.

At the beginning of January, if you have met any goals during the months of September, October, November, or December each building will draw a winner who will receive a gift card.

At the end of May, if you have met any goals during the months of January, February, March, April, or May each building will draw a winner who will receive a gift card.

Goal Setting: Set a goal that is attainable, relevant, and challenges you! Below are some ideas for goals in each category. The number of days you want to achieve your goal is listed for reference just so you can see that the goal days should be attainable and relevant to the goal. Some are reasonable at 3 days while others should be set high (30 days). Please challenge yourself with your goals. Check out Wholefully website and Pinterest for some great ideas!
