Exercise…oh, you can feel so good when it’s over.  But I find that the biggest challenge is finding the time to fit it in.  With 3 young and involved children and a busy husband who works long hours, TIME is my biggest hurdle to regular exercise.

So, here are 5 tips that I’ve used to help me fit exercise into my busy schedule.  And, while I cannot claim to have a fail-proof solution, every single step is a step in the right direction.

Happy first day of Summer!!!  Now it’s time take necessary precautions on heat exhaustion.

Heat exhaustion is a serious illness resulting from exposure to hot, humid conditions, and it’s often accompanied by dehydration.   Without swift intervention, heat exhaustion can progress into heat stroke, which can have serious implications on vital organs and even result in death.

On Monday, May 16, 2016 the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued the anticipated final rule on how existing anti-discrimination laws, specifically the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) will work with corporate wellness programs that require sensitive medical information.   

This is what employers need to know-
1- The final ruling confirmed that wellness programs participation is considered voluntary as long as incentives are capped at 30% of the cost of an employee-only health insurance coverage.
2- Employers still have an obligation to comply with the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
3- The final rules go into effect in 2017.
