Human Resources offers two brown bag presentations on holiday wellness
This is the season for joy and family, so the Human Resources Department would like to offer some holiday-related seminars to help you through the season.
“Healthy Holiday Eating” – noon to 1 p.m. Monday, Dec. 19, in Room 126, John R. Roach Center for the Liberal Arts
To help avoid gaining those five extra pounds during the holiday season, this session offers tips for surviving the holidays both at home and in restaurants, including recipe modifications to lower calories and fat without sacrificing taste. You’ll get suggestions and recipes for festive holiday fare prepared at home, plus ways to keep eating under control while socializing or eating at restaurants.
The presenter is Kathryn Clements, who has more than 20 years of experience as a registered dietician in diabetes education, weight management and work-site health promotion.
“Taking the Stress out of the Holidays” – noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 20, in Room 126, John R. Roach Center for the Liberal Arts
The time of year that should be the most joyful can often be full of stress and tension, but there are ways to take the stress out of the holidays. In this session, participants will learn 15 specific ways to improve the holiday season, examine the tasks that cause the most pressure and learn ways to handle those tasks with less stress.
The presenter is Mary Rose Remington, a consultant for the Park Nicollet Institute, life coach, freelance writer, syndicated columnist and author of Career Quest: A Practical and Spiritual Guide to Finding Your Life’s Passion (Heartwood Publishing, 2004). She is also a graduate of UST.
