Healthy Habits Suck Especially in a Pandemic:

How to Get Back on Track after a Year+ of Lockdowns

Have you noticed drinking more or perhaps putting on a few pounds during COVID-19? Join the club! Being healthy is hard especially in a pandemic! Using the latest scientific evidence Dr. Lee-Baggley will review why healthy habits are hard and the impact of COVID-19 on healthy habits. Using the latest scientifically based knowledge, this course will provide applicable, real-life skills to start and stick with healthy habits. The course focuses less on “what” to do and more on “how” to do it. Participants will learn to recognize and manage what gets in the way of sticking to healthy habits including being more mindful about choices, developing self-compassion, and how to live a life that reflects what truly matters. Participants will learn new ways to live a healthier life, even if you don’t really want to.

Next Program: Wednesdays 7-8:30 pm Atlantic time (6-7:30 pm Eastern time) Oct 27- Dec 15

 

Chronic Disease Management Skills for Healthcare Providers

There is an urgent need for healthcare providers to promote sustained health behaviour change in order to improve chronic disease management. Research shows that behaviour change improves health outcomes and that healthcare providers can make a meaningful impact on patients’ health behaviours. However, most health care providers have little training, and therefore low confidence in, behaviour change skills. This workshop provides concrete, applicable skills based on the latest research that healthcare providers can use to support health behaviour change and chronic disease management.

When offered as a two day workshop, we also include professional readiness training. This program is based on an evidence based program designed to provide healthcare providers skills to manage the stress of change and improve adoption of behaviour change skills into their clinical practice.

Recommended length: 1 or 2 day workshop*

    Additional Resource:

    We also recommend you to purchase Dr. Dayna Lee-Baggley’s book called “Healthy Habits Suck” as a great evidence-based self-help book.

    Salad instead of steak? Working out? Skipping that second beer or glass of wine? Healthy habits are THE WORST.

    If you’re someone who gets up every morning and can’t wait for your run, considers eating sweet potatoes a splurge, and sets aside thirty minutes before work to meditate—this book isn’t for you. If you’re someone who thinks about getting up to go for a run but goes back to sleep, regrets last night’s dinner of fast food, and can barely get to work on time—let alone meditate—then this book will help you find the motivation you’ve been looking for to live your healthiest life, even when you don’t want to.
