I am happy to hear about this initiative. Many Americans spend more than half their lives in the office which can be an unhealthy environment from the sitting, to staring at a computer screen, to eating unhealthy and quick meals. Mostly, the stress makes people ill. I think that there is a lot of very necessary attention on American diets but not enough on stress in the workplace which can lead to more health problems than people realize. Stress can be alleviated through better management, teamwork, and happier more satisfied people in the office. I am glad that IDEO and Bupa is supporting a healthy work environment initiative.

If this initiative goes global, most people are laborers and especially agriculture laborers where the health problems are very different. There are techniques to teach people about how to farm with their current equipment but in ways that exhaust them less an are safer.
