Reduce your Holiday Stress

Wellbeing 360 events offer stress-free (and healthy) holiday recipes that’ll make any household happy and stress reduction techniques for any occasion!

While you might not want yet another event to attend, our Wellbeing 360 events in November and December have what you need to reduce the stress! Wellbeing 360 is a new and interactive series of monthly classes, lectures and workshops designed to help you tackle everyday challenges and improve your personal and mental health. These sessions feature many of the professionals that work here at the CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center, and focus on delivering the most up to date research and information to you in a practical way that you can use!

The holidays are a time of friends and family visiting each other, and sharing meals, but let’s face it, it can also be a very stressful time. Extra mouths to feed and multiple different food needs to accommodate, conflicting political viewpoints making dinner table conversations difficult, or shopping excursions with your kids in tow can all add to the pressure you feel on your schedule, your pocketbook, and your mental health.

Our Wellbeing 360 event in November, called “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner!”, will give you the confidence you need to be a superstar in the kitchen this holiday season. Join registered dietitian Lisa Wingrove as she opens up the demonstration kitchen for an evening of holiday recipes that’ll make anyone in your household happy.

This healthy vegetarian menu can be prepared ahead of time and can meet all your (and your guests’) needs—seasonal, flavorful, and it won’t break the bank!

You’ll learn how to make: Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese, Moroccan Vegetable Tagine with Couscous, and Cauliflower and Parmesan Soup + Goats cheese dip with balsamic and thyme

You’ll leave the demonstration with recipes and samples!

Seating is limited. Purchase tickets today for “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner!”, on November 14.


Our December Wellbeing 360 event is an interactive workshop called “Practical Mindfulness for Reducing Holiday Stress” taught by our own Dr. Liz Chamberlain, clinical psychologist and resident mindfulness expert. The 45-minute workshop will be from 5:30-6:15pm on Tuesday, December 5, with Q+A and a casual dinner afterward.

You’ll learn practical mindfulness techniques to identify stress before it starts taking its toll on you, and you’ll leave with tools to reduce your stress levels when you need it most.
