The AKHIA Wellness Champ (aka Emily Nelman) let us know the average American will consume 4,500 calories and 229 grams of fat on Thanksgiving day. Exciting, right?
I promise—consuming this week’s stories is far more healthy.
1. Standing desks are making us sit more at home. We are still sitting less on average–44 minutes less–but our standing desks are making it ‘okay’ for us to go home and… sit down.
2. Uber is now preventing the flu. Well, not really. Maybe a little. Remember when we talked about all those Uber drivers who didn’t get background checks? Would you be okay with it if they delivered you a flu prevention kit? (Thanks for the share, Kelly O’Brien!)
3. One of my favorite topics: disruptive innovation. A lot of you have heard me talk about this. If you’re intrigued this is a great article from HBR on what it is… and isn’t. It’s a longer read but you’ll enjoy it. Save it for later if you need to but please try to read!
4. Marketers are spending 500 percent more on millennials than any other generation. Check out this infographic that breaks down the who and why.
5. Finally, “as God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.” An oldie, but a goodie. My favorite Thanksgiving TV moment. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!
