HARMONY FOR HEALTH
Health Benefit Program News

May is Mental Health and Wellness Month  

Your mind and body are connected.  How you think, feel, and act affect your total health and well-being.  Being healthy – mentally and emotionally – means you feel good about yourself, your relationships, and purpose in life.

 

Everyone feels on edge, sad, angry, or confused, or confronts emotional issues from time to time.  But if you can manage stress, communicate well, achieve work-life balance, and think more positively, you'll be able to bounce back from difficult times faster and enjoy yourself and others more.  Being good to your mind is just as important as being good to your body.

 

May Tips :

 

Food for Thought
Hummus is a must have dip and spread in many household refrigerators.  So, what is hummus?  It is a creamy, thick spread made primarily from mashed chickpeas and a few other healthy ingredients that has become popular worldwide over the past couple of decades.  It has long been enjoyed in Middle Eastern countries and today is commonly eaten across North America, and Europe, too.   Hummus is a wonderful snack with cut up veggies, a great wrap or sandwich spread, and a perfect accompaniment to grilled chicken or veggie skewers with whole grain pita.    This month's recipe is , Roasted Beet Hummus, which puts a colorful and tasty spin on traditional hummus.  The addition of roasted beets adds a sweet and earthy flavor.  A well-known adage among chefs is, “You eat with your eyes first.”  Enjoy this month's delicious and healthy must-have treat, which is sure to please the palate as well as your eyes.
