Is that a cliché’ to say live a healthy life, eat healthy and everything will be right with the world? We would all like to think that, but we know that things happen and in a spur of a moment, our lives change. At our Association of Bridal Consultants Meeting this past April, we had two speakers, Judith Topper, healthy living speaker and Alayne Gatto, Certified Nutritionist. Judith shared with the wedding planners and wedding professionals about healthy eating for our busy lives. We are all guilty as wedding professionals of eating at our desks, grabbing fast food in between client meetings and the worse one of all, skipping meals. Judith showed us through proper planning of our meals how we can maintain our health (and figures!).
Alayne Gatto, brought us some education on pregnancy for the pregnant professionals. But she also brought us information on how babies born too soon can affect our lives as well as the babies. This month the Association of Bridal Consultants invited The Gift of Life, a local non-profit organization that supports parents of premature babies and babies in the neonatal intensive care unit. The takeaway from this part of the meeting as wedding professionals, all lives matter, because that very premature baby can be our client and prematurity can affect anyone, even a wedding professional. Tying that back to taking care of our health so that we can be as healthy as can be during the pregnancy for the things that we can control, for example, proper sleep, nutrition, and exercise will help us be the best we can be during this stage.
Listen to both of these speakers as they give you a glimpse in to their topics!
When coordinating this meeting, we had to take in to account the topic of healthy eating. The Chef at the Sheraton, knew exactly what to make so that we were eating a healthy lunch ad dessert of fresh fruit for our day.
