Lifestyle Check 2021

We are very pleased to invite you to participate in Lifestyle Check! UT is offering Lifestyle Check to employees as a part of the project Healthy and Strong at Work.

Starting Monday, 11 January, we will begin conducting the first checks.

WHY DO A LIFESTYLE CHECK?

In recent years employees have been invited to take a Health Check according to their age group. The current coronavirus situation has made it even more obvious that a healthy lifestyle is more important than ever before. So we’ve given the Health Check a make over this year, with much greater attention to lifestyle themes. These Lifestyle Checks have been made completely corona proof: everything will be conducted online!

WHAT’S IN A LIFESTYLE CHECK?

An appointment for a Lifestyle Check takes 60 minutes and is conducted via a Teams meeting with a lifestylecoach. The consultation contains the following themes:

  • Mental health
  • Exercise            
  • Diet
  • Sleep
  • Stress
  • Breathing
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol

You will receive a questionnaire before the appointment which you should have fully completed and in front of you during the appointment.

At the end of the check you may discuss improvements to lifestyle and how such changes can be realised in follow-up steps. For example recommendations for exercise, diet, breathing, and de-stressing, but also, for example, recommendations for improving your sleep. You and your lifestyle coach will set up your personal goals and decide how to achieve them. 

HOW CAN I REGISTER?

You can register via the button. 

On the registration page you will find the available time-slots. After registration you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing an invitation for a Calendar appointment. After you confirm this appointment it will automatically appear in your UT Outlook Calendar. Please note: you will receive your actual Teams meeting with the questionnaire you have to complete in advance, one week before the appointment. This link will replace the Outlook Calendar appointment that you received when you registered.
