Healthier Lifestyle Cards

Get Healthier Lifestyle education cards teach employees how to live healthier lifestyles by working in small groups or teams. These cards can help support workplaces interested in improving employee health and well-being. These cards are available to purchase at a low-cost and are part of the Be Super toolkit. The cards are available in English and Spanish.


  • Groups of 3-7 employees meet for about 30 minutes weekly to discuss each card or topic.

  • Include an additional 10 minutes if test data or evaluation surveys are collected to determine how much is learned.

  • Employees can take turns leading topic discussions, rotate weekly, and incorporate creative ways to cover the content.


  • Get healthier (setting goals)

  • Sleep

  • Calories (calories in foods, portion sizes, RMR calculations)

  • Liquids & calories (low calorie/sugar options, low-high comparisons)

  • Basic nutrition (reading labels, food groups: healthy vs. unhealthy)

  • Exercise (benefits, starting out)

  • Strength (weekly needs, group strength routine)

These low-cost cards can be used across different workplace settings and industries. How can I get access to these cards?  The Get Healthier cards can be purchased through Northwest Education Training & Assessment (NwETA)* or get access to this tool by participating in YourWorkpath Program.
