Eating Plan for Stress Management

Well-Being Dimension: Physical & Nutritional

Eating habits play a significant role in helping the body combat stress; yet as stress mounts, even healthy employees can see their eating habits deteriorate. In this session, we will learn how the right foods can increase our energy levels, boost our immune defence, and allow for mental clarity. This live virtual session will also explore what we can do to maintain a balanced diet to promote our stress management capabilities.

By embracing these principles, participants can better contribute to the positive transformation of individuals and relationships affected by trauma.
