eat better icon I'd like to eat better.

But when did food get so complicated? It can be a full-time job just sifting through confusing nutrition tips or the latest diets. Find support, tailored for you. 

I could use some support creating a meal plan that helps me feel better and improve my health – meeting with a registered dietitian for nutrition counseling sounds good. Call Health Care Advisor* (800-357-1371) or schedule an appointment at the Well (where available).

I'd buy healthier food if it was more affordable – taking advantage of discounts and saving on food with Zipongo and Healthy Savings* might be good bets. 

I want to understand how to eat better and get inspired to make changes at my own pace – so I'll check out the online Eat Smart program and may even connect with a coach.

shoe icon I'd like to move more.

But we have so much that requires us to stay put – working at our desks, supervising kids' homework at the kitchen table and spending time in the car. Let's find a way to fit a little movement in our busy lives.

I need some motivation to get moving. I'm going to join a Rally mission or challenge and spark my motivation to get in more movement each day. To learn more and register, visit Rally and click on Health & Wellness.

I want to learn more about how I can increase my movement every day. I'm going to check out the Fit For Life online coaching program.

I need to find affordable ways to be more active. I'm going to work with a coach* by calling 800-357-1371 or in-person at the Well (where available) to create a simple exercise plan I can do on my own. I may also check out the employee discount site to find savings on devices and gear as well as health club memberships.

scale icon I'd like to lose weight. 

Weight-loss journeys are not straight paths for most of us, and no two routes are the same. Pick a path that works for you.

Group support and online coaching sound good to me – l'll give Real Appeal* a try and get going on simple steps to lose weight and keep it off.

I've tried to lose weight without real success and may need specialized care to make real progress – Medical Weight Loss treatment* will connect me with an advanced practitioner who will work to understand my unique situation and the underlying causes. Currently available at Well clinics in Overland Park, Eden Prairie and Minnetonka. 

I want to go at my own pace – so I'll check out the the missions, challenges and communities on Rally.

heart icon I'd like to manage stress better.

It's hard to stay on track in the face of life's ups and downs. I need to find help bouncing back from these challenges.

My mind is racing with all I have to do – I need to build mindfulness into my days.

I've got some tough things going on and could use some extra support – so I'm going to take advantage of free visits with a licensed counselor by phone (866-781-6396), in person at the Well or virtually.

A self-paced, online course might be a place to start – I'd like to go at my own pace – I'm going to learn how with the Stress Less online course.
