In each HLbytes issue, we offer simple and quick activities that you can perform at your desk. No gym membership. No workout clothes. No travel. Just you-taking a few minutes a day to care for you.

A biometric screening provides an excellent snapshot to “know your numbers”. The screening typically includes the measurement of height, weight, BMI, blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and blood sugar. Knowing your numbers helps to identify your risk factors for certain diseases and medical conditions. Check with your employer and health plan for information on how to schedule a biometric screening. Even better, many employers offer wellness incentives for completing biometric screenings such as discounts off your monthly medical insurance premiums.
