Business travel can be somewhat bothersome at times and may impact your health.  According to a recent article “Extensive travelers were 260% more likely than light travelers to rate their health as fair to poor. Obesity was 92% more common in the extensive travelers. They also had higher cholesterol and high blood pressure.”

Health care costs appear to continue to rise. “Employees’ share of premiums for a family plan is up an average 14%.” With that in mind, wouldn’t options to limit business travel or even possibly avoid it all together be terrific?
