June Program: Well-Being At Work

Workplace wellness isn’t just about physical well-being – exercise, healthy bio-metrics, quality sleep.  It’s much more “whole”-istic, and should include a focus on brain health, mental health, and stress reduction too.  Come join us for this dynamic panel discussion and dare to imagine how much better our work and home lives would be with abundant energy and stable moods.  Mindfulness and nutrition to support a healthy brain and healthy body will give us that and more, making a huge positive impact in the workplace.  

 

Attendees of this program will leave with the following tools:

  • Knowledge about how integrative health and well-being approaches lead to workplace flourishing, and positive workplace outcomes. For example, gaining an understanding of the connection between blood sugar and chronic conditions such as stress, anxiety, and depression.
  • Understand how mindfulness supports well-being in individuals, and how employee well-being therefore supports organizational goals.
  •  Identify ways to incorporate the topics of mindfulness and nutrition into your overall health and well-being strategic plans, including actionable takeaways items you can implement within your own workforce
