Mental Wellbeing and its Connection to our Physical Health, June 8, noon-1pm. Register online.
The past year or so has certainly taken its toll on our mental wellbeing. Many of us are dealing with challenges we have never experienced before, leading to more stress and anxiety. We recognize these challenges and see where we need support, but we might not have made the connection to how our mental and physical wellbeing are so woven together. When we are struggling with mental wellbeing, choices and behaviors that felt "easier" before are suddenly more difficult to maintain, particularly food choices. When we are significantly stressed, we find ourselves leaning into comfort food, snacking more often, and having less desire and ability to plan and cook healthy meals. And that is just one example. During this session we will draw connections from our mental health to our physical health and support each other in finding a way forward where we can start to feel we are thriving again, not just surviving.
Lose the "Pandemic 19" – Weight Loss Strategies: June 22, noon-1pm, Register online.
Working from home, being quarantined, and the general stress of the pandemic caused many of us to be more sedentary, struggling to manage our eating habits, having a harder time sleeping, and feeling stressed and drained – which can all easily lead to weight gain and other health consequences. According to a “Stress in America” report from the American Psychological Society, more than 42% of the surveyed adults revealed they gained more weight than they intended to over the past 12 months - and they put on 15-29 pounds, on average. You are not alone!
Our forgiving sweats, pajama pants, and “yoga” pants made it harder to tell we were gaining weight. Now that we are returning to society, our pre-pandemic dress-code and activities, we can no longer ignore our weight gain. The conversations in coaching sessions have started turning to the desire to lose the weight and being ready to think forward to create new goals. In this session, we will discuss some mindful weight loss strategies that will help support you as you work toward your weight loss goals and shed those unwanted pandemic pounds.

Self-care is a hot buzz word right now, but what does it really mean and how do you find the time to fit it all in? You have to care for yourself before you can care for others: students, family, the list goes on.
Self-care goes well beyond the massages and spa visits we envision when we think of self-care and it is vital for our health and wellbeing. In this session, learn about the framework of 6 areas for self-care, assess your current self-care habits, and begin to plan for self-care strategies that are meaningful to you. Presented by Kim Baker, Director of Wellness.

If you are like most of us, this past year has thrown you for a loop in many ways. Everything has shifted, from the way we work and interact with others to the way we eat meals and exercise. Maybe the stress and the uncertainty during this time has left you feeling a lack of motivation. We know that good nutrition and moving our bodies are both ways to reduce stress, which we all need. But how do we translate that knowing into doing? I hear from many coaching clients "I know what to do, I'm just not doing it." Increased intrinsic motivation helps us persevere when unexpected barriers pop up - hello COVID-19. This discussion will bring a fresh perspective to your health journey and open up a conversation around what influences our thinking as it relates to our health. We will focus on the science of behavior change and give you the skills needed to pursue healthy behaviors that will support us in these uncertain times.
Effective collaboration and communication, especially across departments and divisions, requires a sense of safety that comes from trust. But trust is difficult to establish and can be very fragile once it’s there. This session will explore tactical ways to build constructive, trusting relationships at work to improve collaborative experiences and information flow.
