Since 2016, Highmark health plan wellness coaches and nutritionists have collaborated to create a monthly article with fun and simple tips, videos, recipes, and downloadable handouts to help you live more healthfully. If you’re a Highmark health plan member, you can reach some of the same people who write the articles and star in the videos through programs like Blues on Call. (You’ll find a contact number for Blues On Call on the back of your member ID card, or you can call 1-888-258-3428.)
To close out 2018, we asked our team to vote on their favorite videos from this year. Their top 5 fitness and recipe videos are listed below — we hope you’ll find them helpful throughout the holidays and into 2019.
Speaking of 2019, we’re currently discussing how best to share something like the DIY Health series in the future, and we’d love to include your feedback. Please use the comments section at the end of this article or our Comments form to share what you like (or don’t) about the DIY Health tips and format, suggested improvements, or other ways you’d prefer to get wellness tips. If you’re with an employer group plan customer, we’d also love to hear how you have used this content at your organization — and what we could do to better support your efforts.
