Healthy eating subject of message to employees

Healthy eating is all about moderation and balance, advises Human Resources in a message sent Monday to UWindsor faculty and staff.

It offers simple but effective ways to improve eating habits:

  • Nourish your body throughout the day and avoid skipping meals.
  • Eat slowly and without the distractions of TV, computers, or smart phones.
  • Rather than worry about good versus bad foods, remember that moderation is the key.
  • Use caffeine in moderation, particularly if you are prone to anxiety or sleep problems.
  • Become more conscious of why you eat when you are not hungry.
