The Center for Lifelong Learning at Central Lakes College presents “Stick a Fork in It: Controlling Stress through Diet,” from 4-5:30 p.m. Feb. 16 in Room E203 on the Brainerd campus of CLC.

The session is the kick-off to a monthly “Spotlight on Health” series sponsored by the center.

Can an apple a day really keep the doctor away? Does broccoli really beat the blues? This session is designed to address how diet can drastically affect the choices we make and how stress inevitably affects our lives. Participants will be given time during the session to go online and work with a diet management tool to help make it easier to track and follow diet and eating habits.

Presented by Aimee Jambor, Brainerd School District nurse, the workshop will help individuals identify common stressors, determine personal reaction to them and then look at alternative ways to respond. Additional discussions will include how the body emotionally, physically and spiritually reacts to stress and the effects of unmanaged reactions.

Cost to attend this event is $5 for non-members or free for those with a Center for Lifelong Learning membership. Pre-registration is encouraged by calling Bev at 855-8118.
