Bring wellness to your department with these presentations, screenings, and challenges!
Intro to Wellness
This short 10-minute presentation is perfect for your next staff meeting! Review the wellness opportunities available and find out how to stay current on upcoming activities.
Beyond the Stress Ball
This powerful workshop offers practical tools for managing stress that go beyond traditional advice. You’ll learn how effective thinking, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques can lower your stress level and increase your quality of life.
Feeling tied to your desk lately? You’re not alone. Many American workers have a desk job and are sedentary six to eight hours a day. In this presentation you will learn fun and easy ways to build activity into your workday– often without even leaving your desk!
Grocery Store Tour
Bring the grocery store to your conference room! Learn what to look for from each aisle, compare products to become a food label pro, and get tips to find your “best fit” foods, those that taste good, are good for you, and that fit within your food budget.
Work Out, Work Better
Sore neck, shoulders, back, or other muscles? Whether you sit or stand for most of the day, you probably suffer from a not-so-ergonomically-friendly work environment. Find out which muscles to strengthen, which muscles to stretch, and how to maintain a proper posture to help you work comfortably and work better.
Boost: Transform Your Energy
Energy is a precious resource. When you don’t take time to rest and renew at work, you deplete your energy reserves. This leaves you with little to no energy to devote to the things outside work that matter most. Learn how to work more efficiently, take a more effective work break and transform your energy.
Lunch and Learn: Ask the Dietitian
Does your department have any burning nutrition questions for our dietitian? Schedule a lunch and learn session and get your questions answered! Each session will focus on a chosen topic. The sessions will be 30-60 minutes during your lunch hour, so please bring your lunch and enjoy this informative discussion.
Meal Prep 101
Learn to efficiently prepare tasty, nutritious meals in your kitchen to bring to work and have prepared when you’re ready to eat at home without cooking every day.
