Jon’s employer recently formed a Wellness Committee in an effort to attempt to reduce insurance costs. As part of that (I think), they sent out a fairly in-depth survey that asked a bunch of questions about what everyone would like to see the company do to help employees have better health, what they’re (personally) doing now, etc. The results were very interesting, but I have to limit my procrastination – no time to dig the info out now.

Anyway, Jon got a box today – sponsored by his insurance company, I presume, since the stuff was in a bag with their logo.

I don’t know what I think about this, in general, since it seems pretty wasteful to me to send a bunch of random stuff to people – but my judgment is likely clouded by my overall opinion of the insurance/health-care industry and might be overly negative. I don’t know. Either way, it’s always interesting to see what sorts of things others classify as “healthy.”

I just do NOT understand the oatmeal/bar craze, but I think I’ve mentioned that many times.

Just a tad juvenile, but whatever.

Poor Krispy Kreme.

I was actually pretty impressed that they included some sort of exercise element – though I doubt many people would understand what to do with this random piece of rubber.

Edited to add – Jon just forwarded me the instruction manual (!) he received via email for this band.

Overall? Not too bad, I guess.
