How can I earn Vitality points?
Just complete 10 mindful minutes a day, using one of the eligible apps. This includes guided meditations, breathing exercises and sleep stories. You can earn two Vitality points a day for completing 10 mindful minutes, up to a maximum of six Vitality points a week.
Can I earn Vitality points for using more than one eligible app?
Yes, you can use any of our partner apps – Headspace, Buddhify, Calm and The Mindfulness App. Mindful minutes are calculated on a daily basis and can be made up of multiple activities across multiple apps in a 24-hour period. This means that you’ll still earn two Vitality points if you complete five mindful minutes on one app and five mindful minutes on a different app in the same 24-hour period. If you use multiple apps, the limit of two Vitality points a day, up to a maximum of six Vitality points a week, still applies.
Where can I see my Vitality points?
You can see them on your Vitality points statement. They won’t show on the home screen of the Vitality Member app as they don’t count towards Active Rewards.
How long does it take for Vitality points to show on my points statement?
They can take up to 48 hours to show on your statement.
What do I do if I think my points are missing?

First, make sure that you’ve given Headspace permission to share your mindful minutes with Apple Health / Google Fit. Then make sure that you allow Vitality to receive your mindful minutes from Apple Health / Google Fit. Allow 48 hours for points to show on your statement.

Open the Apple Health app on your phone, go to Sources, select Headspace and tap ‘allow’.
