Weekly Round Up: Obesity Programs, Sleep and Learning and Natural Stress Relief

  • Perhaps this is a sore topic, this far into the holiday-noshing season, but I'll give it a shot. If you are thinking about an obesity-related disease management program for your organization, read Bill Meltzer's how-to tips first. He outlines four tiers of employee need, from which "your organization’s return on investment (ROI) can be measured." Check it out.
  • If you want employees to really learn a new task, or to assimilate new information and strategies, make sure they are getting enough sleep. Sleep is key to successful complex learning, according to studies by Howard Nusbaum, PhD, David Margoliash, PhD, and colleagues at the University of Chicago.
  • Crazy family, nuttier economy, where will it end! Find help: Natural herbs, meditation and a commitment to walking are three natural ways to stop worrying.

Happy reading, and see you next week...

In good health,
