Be SMART and Enroll in Health Coaching

One of the perks of taking your WellMASS Health Questionnaire is that your results may qualify you for FREE telephonic or mail-based health coaching.  If your HQ results show that you are high-risk in at least one wellness category, you will be invited to opt into a personalized coaching program.

In order to determine if you are eligible for coaching, after completing your Questionnaire, click on the Programs tab and click the Health Coaching box to see the list of programs you can choose.  Health Coaching programs are available for eight different topics:

  • Back care
  • Blood pressure
  • Cholesterol
  • Exercise
  • Nutrition
  • Smoking
  • Stress
  • Weight Management

Once you’ve chosen the program in which you’d like to enroll, click the Let’s Go! button next to that program or call the StayWell Helpline at 1-800-926-5455.  If you select a mail-based coaching program, information on your topic of choice will be sent to your home address.  If you’d like a more personalized approach, you can choose to enroll in telephonic coaching, where you’ll be able to specify the days and times that work best to talk to a coach.  Your coach will call you on a regular basis to help you develop an action plan to meet your wellness goals and check in to see how you’re progressing.

One of the key areas on which your coach will ask you to focus is goal-setting.  In order to have the greatest chance of achieving your goals, no matter what they are, you will need to come up with a SMART plan to which you can hold yourself accountable.  If you’re interested in participating in health coaching, or you’re about to begin a coaching program, it’s never too early to start thinking about your goals in SMART terms.  Creating a smart goal or plan is easy!  You’ll want to make your goal:

Specific
Measurable
Action-Oriented
Realistic
Time-Restrained

Your health coach will help you begin your journey toward setting and achieving SMART goals.  If one of your general goals is to improve your overall health and well-being, don’t delay – take your Health Questionnaire and see if you qualify for health coaching!
