This is a “Therapist Self-Care training” unlike others! Therapists and other healthcare providers often put the needs of their patients or clients before their own, including their nutrition needs. There is also a significant amount of sitting involved, which can trigger certain joint conditions and associated pains if not managed properly. This presentation, facilitated by three experts in their own fields, will provide simple, practical strategies to help you eat healthier, despite busy schedules and long work days and ways to move and hold bodies to prevent certain conditions and alleviate the aches and pains. We will talk about healthy on-the-go snacks, quick healthy dinners, foods to include every day to maximize energy and longevity, as well as practical exercises and tips to incorporate in long sitting days for healthy bodies.
Participants will be able to:
