- Headspace* (Android, iOS)
- Buddhify* (Android, iOS)

- Under Privacy, tap Apps
- Tap your meditation app

Connect to Google Fit (Android users)

3. Allow Manulife Vitality access to read your Mindful Minutes from the Health app, or your Meditation Minutes from Google Fit

4. Log 10 minutes of meditation to 10 Vitality Points per day
Once your app is linked with your meditation app(s), your Meditation Minutes will be recorded by the Manulife Vitality App. You will be awarded 10 Vitality Points for each day you complete a minimum of 10 minutes of meditation. These do not need to be consecutive minutes. The maximum number of points you can earn per program year is 500. That’s 10 points for your first 50 meditation sessions every year.
Note: In order to ensure your meditation minutes are synced, we recommend opening your app at least once a week.
