On Thursday January 8, I had the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion hosted by the Women of Wellness (WOW). The New Year New You workshop was held at the Bear Glasgow YMCA.
The Sponsors were Diamond State Financial Group and the Bear-Glasgow Family YMCA.
The Panelist were Joy Oliver Hunt (certified nutritionist), Lorriane Williams (personal trainer), Tracie Purnell (therapist), Dr. Monique Hannah (pediatrician), and your's truly.
The most important takeaways, or nuggets as the WOW twins call it...
-Know what season you are in, what season (or stage) of your life you are in. What a single person can cram in might not necessarily be what a family person can cram in.
-Know your limitations, and be realistic with your goals and you physical abilities.
-Reach out for help, whether you are feeling down, professional help is not a bad thing.
-When working out, don't do too much too fast. Take your time, ease into a routine.
-Eat clean, limit processed foods, lots of fruits and veggies... Try the age bite, trying a new food, use your age and take that many bites... Great way to get kids to eat new foods or veggies.
-Know your family health history, know your numbers, and fight to prevent disease.
This was such a fun event, with lots of laughs. Find Women of Wellness on FB to stay connected to more for workshops like this in the future!
