Well-being Wednesday: Emotional Eating: The Connection Between Food and Mood

Human Resource Services will host an informational session focused on how our mood impacts our eating habits and what to do about it. The population of the United States is becoming increasingly obese with each passing decade. There are many speculations about the cause of this phenomenon from an increasing sedentary lifestyle, the ready availability of high caloric foods, to stress and even sleep deprivation. However, if people ate only when they were truly hungry and stopped when they were full, there would be no obesity epidemic. This workshop will address the relationship between emotions and food consumption and how to retrain your body and mind to recognize the cues of hunger and to eat for physiological and not emotional reasons. This hour long session will be offered via webcast Wednesday, February 15 at noon. Please register in advance.

Retirement Readiness: Bridging the Gap: Healthcare in Retirement Before 65

Human Resource Services will host an informational session on bridging the gap from your employer health plan to Medicare. Learn how to use the Marketplace or healthcare.gov to price Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliant plans, and options such as COBRA, short term health plans, sharing programs and group plans. The hour long session will be presented by Todd Cooper with Veridian, March 1 at noon in Gilchrist 009. Please register in advance.
