At least once a week, consistently make or sync all of your daily steps entries on the DailyEndorphin Tufts Health Plan website.

  • You may also track your daily steps with your fitness device such as Fitbit, Garmin, Apple HealthKit, Apple Watch, Google Fit (and others from the list below)- or, use DailyEndorphin's free smartphone app for manual logging (see list of devices/apps that can be synced with daily steps below)
  • AFTER registering (see detailed instructions below), continually log into your account here (you should bookmark this URL for future use): https://tuftshealthplan.dailyendorphin.com/de/login   

Challenge Overview:

  • Registration begins on September 15th. Deadline to register is October 4th.
  • The primary focus on this challenge is to walk at least 10,000 daily steps each day and earn the following "badges" each week along the way:
    • "Platinum" - 5 days/week
    • "Gold" - 4 days/week
    • "Silver - 3 days/week 
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: All names registered will be continually shown and reported on in the leaderboard and via weekly emailed reports to all participants through out the challenge. If you are uncomfortable with this, feel free to enter a nickname (any name) or only your initials as your full name upon registering for the challenge. The platform only needs a valid email address when you register! You may register with any name of your choosing. 
  • Be honest! If manually logging your daily steps entries in the "My Log" area of your user dashboard, report only the entries you have truly done each day. If you enter false entries, you are only cheating yourself.
  • Did you miss syncing and/or making daily steps entries for a period of time? You may use the "week log" feature, calendar feature, or back arrow button the "My Log" area to catch up.

  • Have FUN and get creative! This is all about your physical well being AND connecting with your colleagues and family! Grab a coworker and go for a brieg walk. Have a walking meeting. Enjoy the journey of improving your physical and social health.

10K Step Challenge Kick Off Meeting (register)

Date: Wednesday, September 27th
Time:12:00 - 1:00
Location: Hassenfeld, Levine Ross

Yoga Sessions 

Join us for this 35 minute workshop which will focus on breathing exercises, meditation and stretches you can do at your desk.  Yoga is not just for those who are flexible.  It is more about connecting your breathing to the movement of your body while increasing mindfulness.

The benefits of yoga include physical strength, better posture, body awareness, relaxation and the reduction of stress.  Yoga has been known to lower blood pressure and slow the heart rate.  It has also been linked to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and an improved immune system.

Please wear comfortable clothing, shoes are optional (you may want to bring a pair of socks).  Yoga mats are not needed.
