Four Prize Drawings for Spring Wellness Challenge

All employees and students are welcome to participate in the Spring Wellness Challenge that runs until May 15. We will have a drawing each month for these great prizes:

  • Fitbit Flex
  • Yoga kit: mat, towel, block, and strap
  • Fitbit Aria wi-fi scale
  • $100 “Kindness in Action” Award – learn more at KindSpring.org

In February, Casey Slaney from the Downtown campus won a yoga kit and Jacob McCann (student) won a Fitbit Flex!

 

The Spring Wellness Challenge includes two components:

  1. Free access to Whil.com and the free Whil app with guided meditations to calm the mind, strengthen the body, and boost leadership skills
  2. Spreading acts of kindness with Smile Cards

How to join the challenge:

  1. Sign up at whil.com/team/matc with your madisoncollege.edu email
  2. Go to your email to confirm your account
  3. Download the free app for your phone or tablet from the App Store or Google Play (or you can use the web version of Whil.com on your computer)
  4. Log in and try some guided meditations!
  5. Spread acts of kindness with Smile Cards (available at front desks across the College)

Tell us about acts of kindness you have seen or done!

If you need some ideas on how to use Smile Cards at Madison College, consider these:

  • Send an anonymous note of appreciation
  • Donate a meal to a student in need
  • Pay for the person behind you in line
  • Leave a flower with a kind note
  • Buy a car wash for someone
  • Give a gift certificate for a massage at the Massage Clinic at Truax
