At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska we know providing health and wellness information is an important step to helping you and your employees better manage your health. Each month, this section will highlight a new health challenge that can be taken individually or can be set up to be implemented at your workplace. Along with the challenge, there is a promotional poster and a list of other educational materials that support the monthly health challenge.
Being aware of and knowing cholesterol levels is an essential part of your employees' overall health and wellness. Too much "bad" cholesterol, or LDL circulating in the blood can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. There are many things that can done to control cholesterol levels, one of them is being aware of diet and nutrition. Implement this month's health challenge, "Eat for Healthy Cholesterol Levels," and help your employees keep their cholesterol levels in check.
Monthly Health Challenge
Stress has physical as well as emotional side effects that can impede our employee's ability to live well. Implement this month's health challenge, "Reduce Stress Naturally," and challenge and assist your employees to develop habits to take control of their stress.
Where there's smoke -- there may be cancer. Tobacco smoke contains more than 60 chemical compounds that are known or suspected to cause cancer. Besides cancer risk, smoking and exposure to second-hand smoke can lead to other conditions such heart disease, respiratory problems, etc. Implement this month's health challenge, "Be Smoke Free this Month" and start your employees down the path of becoming smoke free.
