Sparking Joy: Exploring New Possibilities – Spice it Up
- 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Feeling down? You are not the only one. The last year has brought loneliness and loss to many. Research indicates that focusing on our present moment and trying something new can help increase a sense of self-confidence and improve brain health. Join AARP, Healing Solutions Counseling at Jewish Family Services, and the Area Agency on Aging at Land of Sky Regional Council for this series of joy-sparking virtual events.
Spice it Up: There’s nothing quite like cooking to spice up your life! Rachel Kalin, the chef for Jewish Family Services of WNC’s Elder Club Program, shares the ways she uses different ingredients to bring joy into the kitchen. Chef Rachel will prepare an easy, healthy dish to brighten your mood. Cathy Hohenstein, a registered dietician with N.C. Cooperative Extension, will join us to talk about the food-mind connection and the impact a Mediterranean diet can have on health.
