Change Your Tune

Americans are feeling stressed! Many are being asked to more with less, for less. Thanks to 24/7 connectedness, some feel tethered to work even when they are at home. And who hasn’t felt dizzy and overwhelmed from information overload?
That’s why WellU is launching our newest wellness incentive challenge, In Tune. It’s time to get in tune with the stressors in our lives and begin establishing good stress management habits that can be practiced regularly. Like brushing and flossing protects our teeth from cavities, good stress management habits provide protection from the ill effects of too much stress.
And concern is mounting about the wear and tear that excess stress is having on our bodies. Heart disease, sleeping disorders, digestive problems, and obesity have all been linked to chronic exposure to stress.
In Tune is a 6-week campaign that will challenge you to tune in to your stressors and fine tune proven stress management strategies that will help keep day-to-day stress levels out of the danger zone.
By employing a variety of methods to get In Tune with what is causing us stress, we will better be able to manage our response to those stressors and better appreciate the symphony of life. In Tune provides you with an opportunity to play with a variety of proven stress management techniques and determine which creates the best harmony in your life.
  • Fitness: Your physical body needs to be strong and healthy to withstand the physical responses to stress.
  • Relaxation: Learning to calm and quiet the body, mind, and spirit renews energy levels and refreshes the way you see the world.
  • Clarity: If your to-do list is true to your values and beliefs then the top priorities emerge naturally. As they say, all the rest is just stuff!
  • Social Harmony: In the words of stress expert, Brian Luke Seaward, “friends help cushion the fall of a stressful day.”
