Presented by Dietitians at Home and In-Home Counseling for Seniors

Session I:

Do you want to reduce your chances of gaining weight during the holidays, yet still enjoy the festivities with extra special food selections? Learn how to control your emotions and food offerings during the holidays so that your regular eating and activity patterns are not disrupted. Learn the tips and tricks from a registered dietitian nutritionist who knows where those hidden calories lie.

Session II:

For some people, Wintertime can trigger feelings of sadness or even bring on a more serious seasonal depression. These variations in mood can happen for several reasons — changes in weather and the amount of daylight; the holiday “blues” and family conflicts; alterations to diet or an increase in alcohol consumption. In turn these changes can contribute to feelings of fatigue, irritability, digestive problems, difficulty concentrating, sleep disruption and body aches. In this program we’ll review the signs and symptoms of harmful mood changes, and learn about effective treatments and strategies for staying healthy and balanced during the winter months and holiday season.

Parking: On-street, behind Covenant Home, or Swedish Covenant Hospital parking
