Work Makes Hard Work of Healthy Living, Survey Finds

Note from Connie: Ah yes, it's a challenge most of us often face -- we know we need to get out from behind our desks and get moving, and better yet, eat healthy foods. But how the heck do we do all of that while at work? Karen James brings us news about a survey, which brings us some dismal news.
Our workplaces aren’t the most conducive to healthy living, a national telephone survey has found.
Granted, the survey was conducted on behalf of Nationwide Better Health, a company that makes its money by bringing work-site screenings, medical and maternity management, lifestyle health coaching and other programs designed to increase employee productivity into the workplace.
Still, considering how much time the average person spends at work, the results, which I learned about from Business Wire, gave me pause to stop and think.
