Chia Seeds

Small and mighty in nutritional content, chia seeds are great sources of fiber, antioxidants, and heart-healthy omega-3 fats. Chia seeds easily find their way into tasty puddings, smoothies, and baked goods.

Coach's Corner

This monthly feature provides another option for reinforcing a key message to employees.

Dear Health Coach,

 

I find it hard not to feel selfish when I take time for self-care. I have a long list of daily ‘to-dos,’ taking care of my family and meeting my work commitments. What do you suggest?

 

Thank you,

How to Not Feel Selfish

Dear How to Not Feel Selfish,

 

Whenever you go down this negative self-talk road, try to remember that your self-care benefits everyone in your life. It helps you be a better partner, parent, friend, and co-worker. Self-care also helps you build healthy boundaries, so you don’t use up all your personal energy taking care of everyone but yourself. And remember, you are also modeling healthy behaviors for others. It’s a win-win for everyone!

 

In Good Health,

Your Health Coach
