Good Health – what motivates you?

Good health – what motivates you? How about money? Or retail rewards? Let’s kick it up a notch – how about both?
For years now, employers have been encouraging and rewarding staff for being more physically fit and staying in good health. They know that good health is in the best interest of everyone in the workplace. People feel better, are less depressed and take less sick related days off. Now, we are seeing this pitch from a different source – life insurers.


Policy holders could receive up to 10% savings on their insurance premiums and earn rewards from retailers for taking simple steps towards better health: annual health screenings, gym workouts, weight loss, flu shots and online health courses are just a few steps you can take to save on your life insurance. What better incentive could you ask for than to get fit and save money doing it?!

Policy holders will receive personalized health goals, a fitness tracking device and they can even log their activities online. Similar ‘Wellness for Life’ programs have been in place in other countries for a couple of years now, with great success. This wellness link is seen as a way to improve your experience with life insurance and is essentially redefining the life-insurance industry.

The model is set up with various health readings and activities that help you earn points that add up to levels; silver, gold and platinum status – each with its rewards. Walk for 10 minutes – 1 point. Eat a well balanced breakfast – 2 points…and so on. This program is not intended to only attract healthy and physically fit people; it is personalized to your health goals.

Your fitness plan is as individual as you are!

This plan is not just about recording how many steps you take, although that is a good place to start. Fitness trackers or apps are readily available to help you eat better, sleep better, and even keep track of your blood pressure.

Kick start your wellness program today. Stay healthy and claim your rewards!
