In this session, Thrive's Cognitive Nutrition Director Tess Bredesen leads participants into the fascinating science of cognitive nutrition, a growing body of science that explores the food-brain connection as one of the most powerful drivers of overall well-being. 

Our food choices play a powerful role in our cognitive health: our ability to think, learn, focus, and be our most productive, creative selves. That’s why Thrive has launched Nourish to Thrive, a nutrition program that makes the connection between what we eat and every aspect of our well-being and productivity. When we’re “always on” and powering through meetings or tasks, it can be tempting to skip taking time for a healthy meal or even a glass of water. We may think we’re being productive, but the science tells us otherwise. What we eat is deeply connected to our sleep, our emotions, how much we move, how we respond to stress and anxiety and our ability to focus, be productive and connect with others. And when we don’t nourish ourselves properly, all these aspects of our well-being suffer. Wherever we are in the world, working from home or in the office, we have the opportunity to improve our mental health, our relationships, our focus and our productivity by making small – even tiny – changes to what and when we eat and drink. 

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
