WellPower Movement Shifts Focus to Mental Wellbeing in May
Free Activity-Tracking Program to Award Badges/Prizes for Mental Wellbeing Activity

OMAHA, Neb. (April 28, 2021) – Organizers of the WellPower Movement, in observance of Mental Health Awareness month, are encouraging Nebraskans to focus on their mental wellbeing throughout the month of May.  Those interested can register and participate for free at WellPowerMovement.com.

In the mental wellbeing challenge, virtual badges and actual prizes will be awarded for those who log miles--converted from minutes--for several mental wellbeing activities, including meditation, volunteering, reading, gratitude-journaling, group exercise/play and more.

The WellPower Movement is a free web-based activity-tracking program that motivates members to adopt healthy habits by participating in wellbeing challenges throughout the year.  Depending on the challenge, virtual badges and actual prizes are awarded for achieving and logging benchmark amounts of healthy activities, both physical and mental.

The WellPower Movement currently has more than 7,200 participants.  The program’s current physical activity-focused challenge, the WellPower 100 Challenge, wraps up April 30.  So far, participants have logged more than 123,000 miles with 365 participants achieving more than 100 miles since the Challenge began on Feb. 1.

The WellPower Movement is a collaboration between The Wellbeing Partners and the Nebraska Sports Council, Nebraska-based 501(c)(3) organizations with a combined 60+ years of experience in providing wellness programming.  Sponsors of the WellPower Movement include Mutual of Omaha, CHI Health, the Nebraska Medical Association, CiShirts, City of Omaha Parks & Recreation, Black Hills Energy, Aquafina, Medica, the Nebraska Chiropractic Physicians Association, Liberty First Credit Union, Scheels, Farmers Mutual of Nebraska and Unanimous.
