This month's wellness education tackled simple ways to eat healthier.
Cox Manufacturing provides monthly wellness education meetings for employees, each with a focus on some aspect of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. July's wellness addressed strategies to and benefits of eating healthier. The education was presented by Cox Mfg training coordinator Sean Althaus, who has presented many educational meetings regarding physical health and nutrition.
Employees watched Michael Pollan's "How Cooking Can Change Your Life", a 20 minute video outlining the simple steps taken to eat healthier and the benefits thereof. Pollan stressed that cooking meals from scratch versus purchasing more inconvenient, but unhealthier, highly processed foods was half the battle and a huge step towards health and betterment.
Sean Althaus wrapped up the presentation with manageable baby steps on how to start eating healthier, such as refraining from eating when not hungry, eating probiotics daily, and reducing processed foods and added sugars, encouraging employees to gradually set stricter eating goals as previous goals are met.
