Weekly Roundup: Eating Healthy on a Budget; Looming Benefits Cutbacks; Why You Shouldn’t Take Corporate Wellness Advice From “The Office”

This week’s tour around the health and wellness blogosphere offers some advice for those of us feeling the pinch of our country’s struggling economy:
First, Rebecca Scritchfield offers some great tips on how to eat healthy on a budget.

HR Benefits Alert cites a recent study showing that 35 percent of benefits managers admit they are seriously pondering cutbacks in 2009, and details how the lagging economy may impact HR benefits and compensation…

. . .and then offers advice on one of the lowest-cost wellness boosters: Walking programs, with or without inexpensive pedometers.

And finally, the Manpower Employment Blawg tells us why the season premiere of The Office, which prominently featured a corporate weight-loss challenge, is an HR nightmare—but good for at least a couple of wellness-related laughs!
So save some pennies, do your stress control exercises and gear up for tough times, but do everything you can to keep a sense of humor. Remember: They say laughter is the best medicine…

In good health,
Fiona
