In a recent post, I talked about how “text neck” is becoming an epidemic in our country. More and more people spend hours each day with their head down, staring at their smartphones and tablets. The farther you tilt your head forward, the more strain you create on your neck. Text neck is just one […]

As summer winds down, I’ve been shocked to learn how many people don’t use their vacation time. After doing a little digging, I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised. According to the State of American Vacation 2016 report from Project: Time Off, 55 percent of American workers didn’t use all of their vacation time in […]

According to a recent survey from Accountemps, about three quarters (74 percent) of American workers claim to work while they’re tired. More than three in 10 (31 percent) say they do so very often.

Chronic illness is a manmade tsunami that has taken over the world. 18 percent of our nation’s GDP is spent on healthcare. By 2040, that figure is expected to rise to 34 percent. Why?

On January 1 of this year, the Affordable Care Act enacted new rules that make it possible for employers to reward employees for improving their health – or penalize them for failing to do so.

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” It’s a cute little saying that was first printed in the 1866 issue of the publication Notes and Queries. The original saying actually said, “Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread.” Thanks to a recent study, this rhyming […]

A couple of weeks ago, CVS made headlines when they decided to establish health-related rules for employees. Each employee would be subject to an annual exam to assess their weight, blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol and body mass.
