The Well Wisconsin Stressless Challenge kicked off on March 1st. If you’ve started participating, continue to take 5 minutes to do something relaxing each day until March 28th! Yes, you have total and complete permission to decompress, take a break, and be as chill as possible. How does that sound? Track your participation for 21 or more days of the 28 challenge days to check your well-being activity off your list. Completion of this activity, plus the health assessment and a health check, earns you $150*.
By making stress reduction a priority during the month of March, you’ll be well on your way to checking your well-being activity off your list – and a healthier, happier you.
Just follow these steps:
- Record whether or not you spent 5 minutes on a relaxation activity on the Well Wisconsin portal for 21 of 28 days.
- Enter your information before March 28, 2021. (You have a grace period of logging your activity through April 5, 2021.)
- You’re one step closer to $150!

De-stress Tip: Are you going through life with a series of confusing squiggly lines swirling in your brain? That might not feel so great for your nervous system. Journaling offers a place to put your thoughts and emotions down on paper so you can process them more clearly. A simple notebook is a mighty ally in your quest for less stress.
* The Well Wisconsin incentive program is a voluntary program available to employees, retirees and spouses enrolled in the State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance Program, excluding Medicare Advantage participants who have incentives available through their health plan. The Well Wisconsin incentive will automatically be issued to eligible participants upon completing the applicable activities. All wellness incentives paid to participants are considered taxable income to the group health plan subscriber and are reported to their employer, who will issue a W2. In some cases, the Wisconsin Retirement System acts as the employer. Retirees, continuants and their spouses will have some taxes withheld from the incentive amount earned.
