APS Spring Wellness Challenge YO HO HO!


The EAP invites APS Employees to participate in our 2020 Spring Wellness Challenge YO HO HO!


What could be more fun than seeing a buccaneer saga unfold while building sustainable healthy habits? Starting Monday, 4/6/20, this virtual seaworthy adventure will follow the story of Jesse Smith and his parrot sidekick, Penny, as they track down your stolen treasure from Grim Gus Battaraz. Every week a new chapter builds on the plot — the more days you log health behaviors, Physical Activity (exercise minutes or steps), plus Emotional Wellness, Serenity/Personal Growth, and a Daily Quest activity, the more you add to the intrigue and fun… and the more coins and wax seals you’ll collect. (To make it even easier, you can use a tracking device to record your daily steps. Just put the wireless activity tracker on in the morning, sync it with your computer or app, and your steps will automatically load to your Yo Ho Ho account.) Don’t let this fun, swashbuckling tale leave the dock without you. Mark your calendars for Yo Ho Ho! You can participate alone or you can reach out to colleagues and form a team of 2 – 10 members. The pandemic we’re facing as a nation makes self-care and distant social connections all the more essential to our well-being. Please join us in this Wellness Challenge. Form your teams now and let’s get ready to log our healthy behaviors beginning on 4/6/20. Registration is now closed login at  https://apseap.yohohowellness.com
