On the Today tab , tap the Health Coaching tile > Message Your Coach. Read or send a message.
Send a message to your coach when you need support, and they’ll reply as soon as they can. Coaches typically work Monday to Friday. Let your coach know how often you prefer to keep in touch.
Your coach creates an action plan of 3 to 5 daily or weekly objectives to help you meet your goals. For example, you might have tasks to exercise 3 days a week, eat more vegetables, and practice mindfulness. Each time you finish a task, you can mark it as complete on your plan. Your coach can track your progress and see how many actions you complete.
To manage your action plan:
- On the Today tab , tap the Health Coaching tile.
- Under Your plan, tap the circle next to an action to mark it as complete. Tap it again to mark it as incomplete.
- To manage your actions from a previous day, tap the arrow next to Today until you find the day; then, repeat step 2.
On the Today tab , tap the Health Coaching tile > your coach's name. Read their profile.
To request a different coach, ask your current coach or contact Customer Support. You’ll be matched with another coach who can better help you meet your goals.
