We all know that eating right, being more active, not smoking, and not stressing too much are key to a healthy, balanced life. But when a pandemic hits… easier said than done.
Thankfully, UPMC gets it. Their lifestyle and wellness app, Odyssey by UPMC, gives UPMC Health Plan members the tools to establish healthier habits and make meaningful, long-term changes.
Even if you’ve already decided to go all in on your health, knowing what works for you is the most difficult part — that’s where the Odyssey by UPMC app comes in.
Whether you’re trying to manage your weight, reduce stress, eat better, be more active, or quit tobacco, Odyssey by UPMC is here to give you a leg up. You’ll learn how to set small, actionable goals and implement strategies designed to set you up for long-term success. Even better, you’ll have a virtual, interactive health coach to hold you accountable, motivate you, and provide encouragement at every step of your journey.
Sure, that all sounds great, but what can you actually expect?
Being the health-focused folks that we are, we’ve done our homework and downloaded Odyssey by UPMC to give you a first-hand look at why this app can be your go-to resource for living well. And hey, we even learned a few things ourselves.
For starters, the app breaks down complicated information into bite-sized, easy-to-understand topics. Still confused as to what all those numbers on a nutrition label really mean? They’ve got you. Unsure how much you should be exercising every day? No worries. Odyssey by UPMC can help you build a solid, knowledge-based foundation and answer any questions along the way.
The best part? Your virtual health coach. You’ll receive encouragement and personalized tips from a virtual health coach you choose and use regular check-ins to assess your progress. As you go, you’ll get to engage with fun, interactive tools (like cracking a fortune cookie and popping bubble wrap), making learning the basics of healthy living even more worthwhile.
