The Tonic Lifestyle Assessment uses innovative Firstbeat technology to measure Heart Rate Variability (HRV), which identifies and monitors stress, recovery, and exercise levels amongst employees, with recommendations and support then provided on pillars of wellbeing by Tonic Practitioners
Tonic has been a Firstbeat partner for some years now to offer you an assessment service for our to help support your health and wellbeing.
We use Firstbeat technology to measure Heart Rate Variability (HRV) to identify and monitor stress, recovery and exercise levels amongst employees, with recommendations and support then provided on health, activity and mental health, by Tonic coaches.
The Firstbeat device is worn by those participating in the programme for three days. Becca and her team of coaches will then interpret the results and provide a personalised report for the individual and an aggregated report for the organisation.
This includes information on approaches and ways for them to further support their employees based on the results. Progress against this is monitored for a three month period, after which the test can be repeated to monitor progress.
We say this is all about bringing together measurables and wearables together to provide tangible biometric data accompanied by personalised lifestyle interventions. It means our service is truly holistic when it comes to looking after the health and wellbeing our of clients. Adding this to the Tonic toolbox meanes we are equipped to encourage more people to lead healthy lives and provide them with the hard hitting data some of you sceptics out there need!

How’s your body’s battery looking – are you managing to recharge it or is it running low? It’s good to stop and think about this. Most of us will have days that are too busy, or sleeps that are restless, but how does the big picture look? Are you able to balance the tough days with easier ones and get enough sleep most of the time?
I’ve analysed a lot of #Firstbeat data over the years and recently especially see that many individuals are struggling: a lot of #stress & too little #recovery.
2020 has been tough, but if we want to stay resilient, we need to listen to our bodies and minds, and respond. Even a small change is a step in the right direction: 15-min #relaxation / 20-min #walk / bed 30 min earlier / 5-10-min stretch mid-work / a moment for your favourite leisure activity. Identify something that you CAN do & re-arrange your day just a bit!
If you, or someone close to you, is really struggling, don’t stay alone – reach out and get some help. We need each other now more than ever.
