Is there an “optimal diet” for health and wellness? Nutrition and mindfulness play an important role in health and wellness. The Healthy Living Program pre-conference presentations will review popular food and diet trends, nutrition controversies, and what research shows to either support or debunk. Mindful eating practices improve the eating experience, decrease food intake, and help one get in touch with hunger and fullness signals. Learn from expert registered dietitians how to incorporate these practices into your own life or your patients’ lives, building awareness of the how and why we eat.

Do you wander aimlessly through life, or do you have a solid sense of where you are going and why you do the things you do? Research has begun to show that people who have a greater sense of purpose are more likely to outlive their peers who lack that sense. They may also be able to weather the effects of stress better and lead healthier lives.
This hands-on, interactive workshop will introduce you to some of the research around the importance of purpose in life as well as tools and strategies that will help you begin to find that sense of purpose.
