We work in an industry that is not known for a focus on the health and wellness of its workers. Many of us experience depression, anxiety, addiction, eating disorders, and other challenges. We believe we can change this culture through community-building and self-care. Let’s get together to connect with and support one another. This is an interactive session and includes relaxation techniques such as light yoga and breathing. This will go about an hour and will be facilitated by Nalini Mehta, James Beard Women in Food Mentorship recipient , Ayurvedic chef and ambassador for the Happiness Project.

This session will discuss how to increase the wellbeing of chefs and those in the food services industry and the resultant positive impact on the health of those consuming the food prepared by them in the long run.
Learn how to cope with these demands, using intrinsic, holistic stress reducing techniques, such as meditation, breathing techniques, mindfulness, yoga and conflict resolution. Join this session to learn how your positive mindset increases presence, clarity and focus and therefore has the power to make a positive impact on our long term health.
