ROW Webinar: The food-mood connection
The link between food and mood is clear: what you eat affects your mental wellbeing. While food choice can be impacted by how you feel, research shows food may also be a mood trigger – particularly for low moods.
Recent studies show that the more people improve their food choices, the more their depression improves, and food choices have been positively linked to learning and memory. Emerging research is also putting the spotlight on gut health and gut microbiome. Eating foods that support your gut microbiome can support your mental health.
Clearly, nutrition is an important part of mental health support at work. Join us in this session to take a deep dive into the world of food and mood with our guest, and fellow ROW community member, Brownyn Hudson. Bronwyn has over 20 years of experience across nutrition, health and wellbeing, education and children’s development, parenting support and health coaching, and understands the real-world challenges relating to health, balance and adopting change. As a mum of four children, she has also navigated change through multiple international relocations, recovery from serious injury and ongoing pain, and has supported her husband through mental health challenges, acute mental distress and chronic fatigue syndrome.
We will explore the current science, how you can support nutrition at work, and tips and tricks for improving brain and gut health.
Our guest is Brownyn Hudson, Clinical Nutritionist, Fuel Your Wellbeing
