Health Education Classes Begin in March

Well…the new year’s resolution time has passed and my goal to eat healthier and get active has already faced some barriers. The truth is figuring out ways to eat food you love, that is healthy and affordable is challenging. Additionally, finding time to work out or be active is particularly difficult. Over 80% of males and 66% of females work more than 40 hours per week. That doesn’t include the work that, disproportionately women, do in the home watching children, cleaning the house, etc. This can make it hard to find time to go to the gym, or attend a class. The good news is that research has demonstrated that even working out once a week has health benefits, both physical and emotional (physical activity makes you feel better). With this in mind the Wellness and Stress Clinic is launching their first health education course “Eating Right and Getting Moving.” The course meets once a week and has 45 minutes of introductory fitness opportunities followed by a 45 minute healthy eating demonstration. This course is designed for adults, over the age of 18, who are interested in improving their health through diet and movement. The course will also discuss recipes and tips for eating well with a chronic disease (i.e. diabetes, hypertension, etc). Participants get some benefits as well (e.g. free gym membership for up to 6 months). Join us at the Wellness and Stress Clinic for our first health education course! Exercise & cooking class
