Free and Open to all, Donations welcomed!
Most workplaces are not conducive to eating mindfully. In fact, the current way of doing business is to sit at our desks for eight hours without even getting up for lunch away from the computer. The toll this takes on our minds and bodies is huge. In fact, not exercising and eating unhealthily are linked with large reductions in productivity at work.
In addition, there is no evidence that coercive or financially-based wellness programs focused on weight issues (i.e. weight loss programs) work to improve eating by employees. But ample evidence exists that they are not only morale-reducing and an expensive distraction from the business of business, but result in negative health outcomes.
In this webinar, you will learn to recognize some of the common problems in eating mindfully at work, learn tips for becoming a more mindful eater, and learn strategies for creating a healthy food environment for all your employees.
Lynn Rossy, Ph.D., is an author and health psychologist who specializes in offering mindfulness-based interventions for eating, stress, and work-life balance. She became the Director of Integrated Wellness at Veterans United after spending much of her career at the University of Missouri System.
She developed an empirically validated mindfulness-based intuitive eating program called Eat for Life which helps people have a healthy relationship with food and their bodies—decreasing binge eating while increasing body image, mindfulness, and intuitive eating. She published the concepts from the program in a book entitled, The Mindfulness-Based Eating Solution (New Harbinger, July 2016).
Her greatest passion is helping people find delicious ways to eat and move their bodies, while discovering greater meaning and purpose in life.
