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.”

“Just came back to campus after a year of pandemic [and] just want to say that I can really tell the effort that both dining halls and all of the other locations are really putting in to make us students still feel like there is more than enough food available, good food, fresh food, healthy food. I don't think students are aware that there is such a food shortage/worker shortage and that what goes on behind the scenes must be a logistical nightmare. But I recognize it at least :) the staff was been so friendly and kind, even in the very rare occasion when something took longer than expected I could tell they were trying their absolute hardest to provide it fast and with great quality. Great job to all of them, this one student greatly appreciates the effort you all do. -Student, Stony Brook University”

“Thank you all for such a wonderful grand pasta buffet on Friday! Everything went so incredibly smooth - from set-up to break-down. The menu was thoughtfully planned and the lunch was such a treat and undeniably delicious - the best I’ve ever had! I have heard only glowing reviews of the luncheon. Thank you guys today and every day!”

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”

“I’m the GM for Branson [Ultrasonics] and based in the Brookfield office.  This is the first week that the café has been up and running in our new headquarters and just want to acknowledge the great job Adam Schnittert and the CulinArt staff onsite have done.  Our employees’ feedback thus far has been very positive.  The expanded options and menu quality have been very well received.  Just want to send you a quick note of thanks.”

“Thanks so much for a great week of food here at SCH to start off 2021. Everything has been fantastic. The kids were loving the Chinese food and boxes today. The Moo Shu Pork was amazing. Great work!”

“We can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you put into getting this emergency shipment of water to our Waco, Tx office. As always, you guys pulled out all the stops and did everything possible to help! I know it doesn’t seem like much to you, but our employees in TX that need drinking water are truly grateful. I feel so fortunate to work with such true professionals. I think you set the bar that your competition wishes they could match!”

“I wanted to recognize the individuals at the Valley Forge Site Café who have been supporting us throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic.  I have been onsite at least a few days every week since June 2020 and I noticed that the team continued to provide quality and timely service for breakfast and lunch.  They effectively packaged the food to maintain CDC guidelines. Thank you!  ”

“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.”

“We want to take a moment to celebrate all the employees who worked on the front lines during unprecedented times. Your efforts and dedication to going above and beyond are noticed and appreciated. Thank you for being the heart and soul of CulinArt Group. We couldn’t do this without you. Chef Jay and Chef Paul have been so awesome in the Hubbell Café.  There has been significant change, but they take it in stride and keep the delicious food coming.  We truly appreciate them!”
