Sleep well to be well
Sleep is an important element of our overall well-being and our safety, too. Building a healthy sleep habit can help to improve memory, reduce stress and lower the risk of injury and illness. So let’s make it a priority. Track your sleep for 21 days from April 15 through May 14 and earn 25 wellness points with your eyes closed.
To complete this activity, log into the US wellness website and click on the “Challenges” tab, then select the “Sleep Well Competition” and enter your sleep hours on the calendar. Track your daily sleep hours for any 21 days between April 15 and May 14 to earn credit. While the recommendation is to aim for 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night, any amount of sleep counts for this activity as long as you track it.
You can track manually or with a synched fitness device.
- If you choose to track manually, we recommend that you input your sleep hours every morning, but you also have the option to track retroactively as long as you track all your sleep hours by end of day May 14.
- If you choose to sync a sleep-tracking device, be sure to go to the Challenge page at least weekly to verify the syncing and manually add any sleep hours that were not captured.
