How do I earn points?

Throughout the challenge you will be able to earn points in three categories.

Healthy Habits:

We have created four unique healthy habits within each of the eight areas of the Wellness Wheel. You will earn 3 points for each habit you successfully accomplish and log each week, with a maximum of 1 habit from each area of the Wellness Wheel.

Exercise:

Make sure to keep track of your physical activity since you can earn 1 point per 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise you engage in during the challenge. You can log a maximum of 25 exercise points per week, or 12.5 hours of exercise. For more information on exercise recommendations check out the American College of Sports Medicine’s website.  

Event Participation:

We will have two different types of events in this year’s Challenge. 

  • HUWC Events: These are unique events to the challenge that are designed to cover various areas of the Wellness Wheel. You will earn 10 points for attending and participating in each of these events.
  • Highlighted Campus Rec Activities: These are pre-existing events put on by Campus Rec and will primarily focus on physical fitness. You will earn 5 points for attending and participating in each of these events, and you can use these events to log exercise minutes as well!
