Group Meetings:

Wellness Book Club - Location TBA, 1/22 - 2/12
Are you tired of the same-old New Year’s Resolutions of “eating healthier” through restrictive diets – forbidding your favorite foods and eating foods you might not even enjoy? NOT THIS YEAR! Instead, let’s work together to ditch the diet-mentality and embark on a journey towards building a healthier approach to food (without restriction), and develop a kinder, gentler, and more positive relationship with food! We invite you to join our upcoming book club as we dive into the pages of "Feeding Yourself with Love & Good Sense" by Ellyn Satter.

Details:
What: "Feeding Yourself with Love & Good Sense" by Ellyn Satter (Book is provided by Employee Wellness to the first 20 people who register, otherwise it is $6)
When: Mondays, from 1:15-2:00pm, 1/22-2/12 (four weeks)
Where: TBA (on LCC main campus)

During our sessions, together we'll uncover the secrets of eating competence, share our experiences, and brainstorm practical ways to integrate the principles of eating competence into our daily routines. This book club will encourage you to give yourself permission to eat all foods in amounts that are satisfying, and help you feel positive about your eating. 

Whether you're looking to break free from dieting, enhance your relationship with food, or simply connect with a supportive group of fellow readers, the Wellness Book Club offers a unique opportunity. It's a chance to nourish your body and soul, two very-short chapters at a time. Let's nourish our minds and bodies together!

Instructors: Jenni Miner, ACSM and ACE Certified & Tamberly Powell, Registered Dietician and Nutrition Faculty

Health Accountability Group (on Slack):

If you’re like me, you’re not new to trying to improve your health and fitness. My guess is that you’ve had some successes in the past but lost your momentum as time went on. It is so hard when you feel like you’re in it alone. But you don’t have to be alone! That’s why we strive to build a supporting and uplifting virtual coaching community, where you can join with like-minded individuals, who are all trying to better themselves and their own health and fitness. I would love to invite YOU into this community.

If you are interested in joining the Wellness Channel on LCC’s Slack network, please email Jenni (minerja@lanecc.edu) to be added. In this channel we support each other’s goals, check-in on progress on those goals, celebrate successes, problem-solve issues, and share fun health, fitness, nutrition, and wellness tips.

 

 

The CHILL Room (19/117):

Escape the daily hustle and experience a haven of Calm, Healing, Inventiveness, and a Lighter Load in the The CHILL (location: 19/117, code: 19117), open anytime building 19 is open.

Designed exclusively for LCC employees and staff, The CHILL is your retreat for relaxation and stress relief. Discover a range of soothing activities and amenities, including beautiful puzzles, a serene meditation space, yoga nook, a cozy reading corner, and invigorating happy UV lights. Unleash your creative side with crafts or unwind on massage mats that will melt your stress away. Your well-being is our priority, so don't miss the opportunity to unwind and recharge during your day.

If any of the above don't interest you, you are also welcome to join one of many virtual walk/jog groups
