HARMONY FOR HEALTH
Health Benefit Program News
December is Mind Body Wellness Health Month
Lift your spirit by bringing your mind and body into balance. Find perfect harmony. A positive outlook on life can make a difference in your overall health. For a healthier, happier you, sometimes all it takes is a little imagination. Take a break from your day with 10 minutes of positive thinking, meditation, or a walk. Remember an event that made you happy. Or imagine yourself in a place that makes you feel calm and worry-free, like on a beach or your favorite hiking trail. For a more direct effect, do something that makes you smile or laugh. Studies show that simple act of smiling can reduce feelings of stress. And don't discount the magic of music. Sing out your blues and feel your spirit lighten.
Food for Thought
Fall is here, and winter is right around the corner. It's the perfect time for comfort food and this month's Thrivey recipe, Vegan Sloppy Joes. It's a vegeterian spin on a traditional family night meal. This simple plant-based recipe tastes like cozy comfort food with none of the guilt. So, try this month's recipe. You won't miss the ground beef.
