Eat Well and Move Your Body to Help Manage Stress

Fun at Five Fifty Fifty

Consider these healthy eating tips, then join us for the 5k.50.50. REIMAGINED – May 18-24, 2020

While there is much that may have you feeling out of control right now, a few simple eating tips can help you remain in control of how you fuel your body.

  1. Use the stay at home order to your advantage: Stock your pantry with healthy staples that will last a while with protein, fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes and whole grains. It’s far easier to make healthy food choices when unhealthy alternatives are not available.
  2. Have healthy snacks ready at all times: A prepared fruit and veggie tray will stay fresh for up to four days when covered and kept in the refrigerator. Make it fun for your kids by setting up a yogurt bar, stocked with chopped nuts, granola and fruit (dried or fresh, whatever you have) and get to work creating yogurt parfaits. The possibilities are endless!
  3. Add some variety to your meals: Stay safe and healthy by having Cooked* deliver nutritious meals right to your doorstep. These meals can help support a healthy immune system while providing a fun, vibrant meal for you and your family to enjoy. Cooked is taking COVID-19 precautions to keep you and your family safe.

Then, get out and get moving!

Get Outside (maintaining social distancing of course) and JOIN US While We Run (or Walk) the Virtual 5k.50.50. REIMAGINED May 18-24, 2020

One in five adults in the United States is diagnosed with a mental illness - that’s more than 65 million people! And, more than half of those people don’t receive care. The mission of the 5k.50.50. race is to remove the stigma of mental illness while increasing the awareness of how many people struggle with a mental health diagnoses AND working to make mental health care affordable and accessible to all.

May is Mental Health Awareness month, and the 5k.50.50. Run/Walk Series was developed by Adel B. Korkor, M.D. as a way to address the epidemic of mental health challenges in America. His idea of running a 5k race in all 50 states in 50 days started a movement that spread from one coast to the other, one state at a time. Dr. Korkor ran in all 50 5 K’s to draw attention and raise funds to help others who struggle with mental illnesses. In 2019, Dohmen acquired Salus, a corporate wellness company founded by Dr. Korkor and he joined Dohmen as an advisor. This year, Dohmen, is the official sponsor of the race in all 50 states.

So, take control of your health while helping others! Click here to sign up, and join us by running 5k May 18-24, as part of the REIMAGINED 5k.50.50!
