National Women’s Health Week May 9th-15th, 2021

Happy National Women’s Health Week (NWHW)! Let’s begin a weeklong, health strong movement to celebrate wonderful women. The week of May 9-15, 2021 serves as a reminder for all women and girls, to make their health a priority, both physically and mentally. Health is an act of self care, which is not all facials and bubble baths. Self care is providing yourself with intentional activities to enhance your energy, restore health, and rejuvenate mental well-being. Self care is the practice of prioritizing emotional, physiological, and physical needs. So let this be a week to focus on YOU and celebrate all aspects of health! The time is now to take health in your hands.

Now, how can you actually better your health and overall well being? The first step is by taking care of your body AND your mind! Appreciate all they do for you, as they work together to provide optimal health.

Here are 5 easy steps to get started:

  1. Talk to a professional. Depending on your needs whether that be optimize your diet with the help of a dietitian, cope with mental stress through a psychologist, or get help from a physician to help your underlying health conditions, a professional can always help provide the best care!
  2. Find a lifestyle that is maintainable for your nutrition and activity goals. Research has found that “Yo-yo” dieting is detrimental to long term health. Implement long term success by finding healthful foods you enjoy and experiment with home-cooked meals! Try meal prepping, batch cooking, using seasonal produce, and creating healthful, nourishing meals. Seek out ways that help you stay physically active, such as walking, swimming, biking, dancing, yoga, or doing household chores more frequently. Find movement that is enjoyable and sustainable for you.
  3. Take care of your mental health. Stay connected to family and friends, express emotions to a professional, journal thoughts, incorporate mindfulness activities, practice gratitude.
  4. Find ways to manage stress. Women are human, and humans get stressed. The solution is not to eliminate stress (as that would be impossible), but finding ways to manage it! Some helpful ways include breathing exercises, stretching, writing out thoughts, getting enough sleep, talking to a loved one, helping others, getting moving, eating balanced meals, limiting alcohol and caffeine, meditating, or talking to a professional.
  5. Practice good sleep hygiene. Proper sleep helps cognition, mental, physical health, and immunity. Follow a night time routine to wind you down before bed. Be consistent in the times you sleep and wake up to facilitate your circadian rhythm to improve your mental and physical health, and boost. Aim for at least 7 hours of sleep. Try winding down with a cup of warm tea, taking a hot shower, applying skin care products and moisturizer, reading, or writing. Avoid screen time before bed to keep you for staying up due to bluelight and mental stimulation!

What our clients are saying

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“With all the prep work from Winterim ramping up and classes continuing as usual, it's a busy time to be a Forman teacher. Imagine my delight, tired as I was, when I delved into the upscale-restaurant-quality chicken parmesan our dining hall served last night. Forman is all about support, and providing our students with a dinner of that quality is just as important a measure of support as anything that happens in a classroom.”

“I can’t thank your entire team enough for the outstanding service, food, displays, everything!  You are a master at detail, and because of that Adam and I were able to focus on the parents.  I know what a sacrifice pulling off a weekend like this means, we are so appreciative and grateful to you all for your talent and generosity.”

“I ALWAYS feel spoiled by the meal offerings at CSW (The Cambridge School of Weston) and am entirely grateful for it. As I eat today's delicious and lavish lunch (and think about yesterday's as well), I can't tell you how much I feel so well cared for here, both with the food and by the dining hall staff. CSW cares for us in so many ways, both big and small.”

“Thank You! Chef Budd [and team], you overcame a new online ordering system (and hundreds of labels daily!), provided creative and healthy menus, continued to connect with local farmers to incorporate locally sourced ingredients, and worked tirelessly to serve the school community on three campuses.  While it feels like you are all a little like the Wizard of Oz right now, working behind a curtain in a kitchen far away, we sense your smiles and your passion to deliver the best possible service during these trying times. We are all so grateful!”

“I will say that CulinArt has always been a very collaborative partner to T. Rowe Price, listening to our current needs and future goals and suggesting realistic and achievable strategies to meet those goals.  2020 was obviously no exception.  CulinArt also altered other areas of our OCS and pantry programs to create safer environments for all our associates. We can only thank you for your continued flexibility and innovative ideas through these difficult times.”
