During the Challenge, you will have the chance to earn bonus points in the NUTRITION, EXERCISE, and SLEEP categories.
Lose 2 or fewer nutrition points over any consecutive 4-day period, and you'll earn 1 "Indulgence Bonus." That means you will need to earn 18/20 nutrition points in the 4-day period to earn the indulgence bonus. Each bonus is worth 1 food point and will be automatically applied to your nutrition score if you enter fewer than 5 points for nutrition in your daily score.
Indulgence Token Use
When you enter fewer than 5 points in Nutrition, the game will automatically apply your earned Indulgence bonus to your nutrition score, up to 5. If you have fewer than or equal to as many Indulgence bonuses as you need to make a perfect score of 5, all will be used.
If you have more than you need, only the bonuses you need to make a score of 5 will be used. Enter your actual score and the site will make the transfer from your bonus account to your submitted score.
The bonuses cannot be saved. They will automatically be applied to your score when you enter fewer than 5 nutrition points.
Indulgence bonuses will not be applied to past scores. You must earn them before you can use them. Once a score has been locked in for a particular day, it cannot be re-opened or adjusted.
Use of Indulgence Bonuses will be the equivalent of earning those nutrition points. That means their use will count as nutrition points earned in the count towards the next earned Indulgence Bonus.
Indulgence Bonuses cannot be used for categories besides Nutrition.
Exercise for 10 consecutive days will earn you a “Rest-Day Bonus,” worth 1 exercise day (5 exercise points). This token will be applied to your exercise score when you enter a “no” in the Exercise category
Rest-Day Bonus Use
When you enter a "no" in Exercise, the game will automatically apply your earned Rest Day bonus to your nutrition score, giving you the 5 points you would earn for selecting "yes." Each Rest Day bonus is worth 5 full points.
Enter your actual Exercise response and the site will make the transfer from your bonus account to your submitted score. The bonuses cannot be saved. They will automatically be applied to your score when you respond "no" to the Exercise question.
Rest Day bonuses will not be applied to past scores. You must earn them before you can use them. Once a score has been locked in for a particular day, it cannot be re-opened or adjusted.
Use of a Rest-Day Bonus will be equivalent to earning exercise points. That means their use will count as exercise points earned in the count towards the next earned Rest Day bonus.
Rest-Day Bonuses cannot be used for categories besides Exercise.
Night Owl Bonus – Earn one bonus by getting your full night's sleep for 6 consecutive days. This bonus will be applied to your sleep score when you enter a "no" for Sleep in your daily score. Night Owl bonuses cannot be applied retroactively.
Free Day Bonus
Lose 5 or fewer total points over any consecutive 21-day period, and you'll earn a "Free Day" token. That means you will need to earn 730/735 points in the 21-day period to earn the Free Day Bonus. A free day bonus is a pass for a perfect score for any day after you have earned it.
Earning and using indulgence and rest day bonuses during that 21-day period will not negatively affect your ability to earn a Free Day bonus. In other words, when you use a bonus to make up for missed points, the game will count those as equal to points you would have earned without them.
Free Day Bonus Use
The Free Day bonus is the only elective bonus in the Whole Life Challenge. After earning a free day, you will see the bonus on your daily record entry form. When you want to apply a Free Day bonus to your score, simply click on the token icon and you will be prompted with a final confirmation. Select "yes" and you will be given a perfect score for the day, reflection included.
