Saving Money & Losing Weight - On Autopilot

Someone Will Make You Save Money & Lose Weight

Gone are the days of “Teach a man to fish and he never goes hungry”. Today we are moving towards “Someone will catch the fish, clean it, make sushi and place it in your mouth. Hopefully you will chew and ingest”. Amazing!

To Lazy to Workout
“Steelcase Inc., the nation's largest office furniture maker, is rolling out a treadmill work station in November that would replace sedentary time in the office with slow walking. The Walkstation, which combines a specially designed treadmill with a height-adjustable work station, operates between one-half to two miles per hour. It's the first product from Steelcase's FitWork line, which will promote more movement in the workplace.”

Too Lazy to Save for Retirement
“The enactment of the Pension Protection Act in December "will help many more workers and their families build a nest egg for a secure and comfortable retirement," Labor Secretary Elaine Chao said.

One-third of eligible workers don't participate in 401(k) and other defined-contribution plans. Studies show automatic enrollment could reduce that figure to less than 10 percent, the department said. The law, passed by Congress and signed by President Bush last year, lets employers require workers to "opt out" instead of "opt in."”
