Other events of note:
Tuesday November 7, 6:00 – 7:00 PM: Mindful Masculinity: Intuitive Living and Eating for Men Zoom Workshop with the Student Wellness Center, featuring Janelle Bayless and Jake Gorham
In a world where men’s mental health and holistic well-being are crucial and sometimes overlooked, this interactive learning session dives into the realm of mindful masculinity. Join us as we explore how the principles of intuitive living and eating can be harnessed to benefit mental wellness, healthy relationships with food and promote positive body image. In this thought-provoking workshop, we will delve into the challenges that men face in navigating societal expectations and the impact these can have. We will debunk myths surrounding health and body weight, shedding light on the harmful effects of diet culture on well-being. By promoting awareness of weight stigma, we aim to empower men to challenge these biases and embrace body respect. This is an opportunity to engage in open dialogue to share and listen to other’s life experiences. This event is part of Movember, an awareness month about men’s physical and mental health issues.
