Loyal readers of this blog know that the WellMASS Health Questionnaire, which is available to GIC-insured employees of the Executive and Legislative branches and Constitutional Offices, is a great resource that helps participants take charge of their health. The Questionnaire is free, 100% confidential, takes around 10 minutes to fill out, and can be accessed any time on the WellMASS portal at https://wellmass.staywell.com – up until June 30. The Questionnaire will close at the end of this month, so if you have not taken yours this program year (which began on September 15, 2014), you only have a few more days to do so.
Taking the Health Questionnaire will provide you with a great snapshot of your current health status and, if you’ve taken it in the past, a comparison of how your health has improved from year-to-year. Your HQ results may also qualify you for free telephonic health coaching, which connects you with a health coach who can provide you with personalized, one-on-one guidance and recommendations to get you on the road to practicing healthy behaviors. Additionally, anyone who takes the HQ before it closes on June 30 will receive a deluxe WellMASS gym bag.
If you haven’t gotten around to taking your HQ yet this year, there’s no better time than now to do so. And while you’re at it, feel free to take advantage of the other great tools and resources available on the WellMASS portal. All it takes is a few minutes to become more aware and proactive about your health.
