It is a true shame that there are no immediate rewards for living healthy. There are clear long-term benefits, but nothing instantly gratifying (short of positive endorphins, relieving stress, and clearing your mind). If only there were incentives to live healthy and to make positive life choices… oh wait! There are!
Best Health offers their Wellness Incentive Program to all SDPEBA members, allowing you to earn gift cards and donate money to charity all for just living healthy.
How it Works
Best Health offers points to SDPEBA members who sign up via the Best Health mobile app or at https://sdpeba.yourbesthealth.com and participate in healthy activities. These activities are customizable and chosen by you—they range from coaching sessions, to seminars, to just eating healthy!
As you finish activities you gain points, these points can then be put towards raffles, gift cards, or even charity, all through the Best Health site or app.
Why should I tie my Personal Health to Digital Numbers?
That’s a very astute question, one that I think requires a longer conversation about society as a whole, but before we start talking about applied metapsychology, let’s talk about positive reinforcement.
Rewards encourage behavior. Even if you don’t care about the raffle—the concept of having a statistic to back up your effort will keep you motivated and give you a tangible representation of your progress. This is how habits can be developed, and these habits snowball into lifestyles, and that’s great when the lifestyle is healthy (and comes with a $200 visa gift card).
Ways to Earn Points
Best Health is constantly being updated. More and more experiences are being added to the program regularly, meaning the ways to earn points are expanding as well. Below is a table featuring the different ways you can earn rewards:
