Simplify Your Life for Better Health
Participants will explore ways to create more time and space – physical, mental and emotional – in which to pursue those things that are most important to you. First, we will look at prioritizing the things that really matter. Next, we will offer suggestions on how to turn down the noise and reduce or remove the clutter and other obstacles that get in the way of a richer, more satisfying life.
Healthy eating is not about strict dietary limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health and boosting your mood.

This webinar will provide an overview of a healthy diet, nutrient-rich foods, a balanced eating pattern, and steps to apply a healthy balanced eating plan.

A caregiver is someone who provides care for a person who needs extra help with medical or personal needs. It is typically someone with a chronic illness, disabling condition, or is an older adult who cannot care for themselves. About 40% of caretakers felt emotionally stressed, 20% said it caused financial problems, and 20% felt physically strained. As a caregiver it’s easy to feel stuck in a role you didn’t expect, or helpless to change things. You may not be able to get extra time, money, or physical assistance, but you CAN get more happiness and hope. Learn the signs of burnout how to avoid it in this webinar. Also, you will learn that you are not powerless, and we will discuss ways you can get help.
In this program participants will discover effective lifestyle habits and practices that contribute most to living a long, healthy life. Participants will gain insight into the importance of them and how to incorporate them into their current daily life.
Sufficient sleep is not a luxury – it is a necessity – and should be thought of as a “vital sign” of good health. The way you feel while you’re awake depends in part on what happens while you’re sleeping. While sleeping, your body is repairing tissues, consolidating your memory, releasing hormones that regular growth and appetite, restoring energy and boosting the immune system. In this webinar, participants will learn about the importance of sleep, the consequences due to lack of sleep, strategies to optimize their sleep routine.
