Helping Neighbors: FISH Hosts ‘Stressed is Desserts Spelled Backwards’ Seminar

F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP will host a ‘Stressed is Desserts Spelled Backwards’ Seminar on Tues., Jul. 11, 2017 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. at The Sanibel Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way. Lunch will be provided, and RSVPs are required. This seminar is funded through the Wells Fargo Community Award Grant.

“Many times in the workplace, employees experience stress. Sometimes, the way that stress is addressed is by eating and snacking. Eating and snacking satisfies us temporarily. At the same time, if the meal or snack is not a nutritious one, it can release endorphins into our system which only reverts us back to that negative feeling again.,” says Kathy Y. Monroe, M.S.G., FISH Program Director. “The experts from Lee Health are going to discuss when stressed how to find the healthy balance in the workplace by making better choices for healthy eating.”
