This week is about Welcoming Challenges!
Viewing challenges as opportunities for a different path or personal growth is a way to reframe situations and reduce action-paralyzing fear responses. It creates empowerment and control!
HERE is probably my favorite video of all time and it is a GOOD reminder to approach adversity differently. Prepare yourself for chills…
Functional Medicine Corner
There is much in the news these days that I choose to skim over or ignore, largely to preserve my cortisol balance and sanity. However recently an article caught my eye that gave me joy and hope for our nation’s collective health future.
On September 28th, there will be a national conference on hunger, nutrition and health. This will be held in Washington DC and is free to the public with access virtually. The topics this conference will address include:
- Improving food access and affordability for all
- Integrating nutrition and health – food is medicine!
- Addressing the importance of physical activity – everyone needs WODs in their lives!
- Supporting food entrepreneurs and local farmers – like Of the Land, who supplies the amazing Green Boxes weekly!
- Enhancing nutrition and food security research
In this incredible community, we have all experienced the real benefits of how making daily choices regarding movement and food can make tangible differences in our overall health picture.
My hope is having a national stage for these important topics will spur more communities like this one, so we can decrease the incidence of chronic illness and improve overall health and happiness in our nation. Click on the links above for more information and how to get involved!
