Topic: Addressing the wonderful audience at MetLife on Holistic Health and Lifestyle Medicine and introducing our four foundational pillars of wellness.

Description: The focus of our discussion was stress management and sleep, two of my favourite subjects because they stand to be the most significant gaps in disease prevention and recovery from all the cases we consulted across the world. When I started my career in nutrition and slowly moved into integrative and lifestyle medicine, what was once the most crucial vertical to me – nutrition, now only appears hyped and complicated. Don’t get me wrong. Nutrition is extremely important. It is essential for prevention and recovery because everything we eat either nourishes or hurts us. But what I mean is that nutrition is not everything. No matter how excellent your nutrition is, if you do not take the effort to balance it out with adequate movement, quality sleep, and emotional wellness, nutrition cannot and will not work alone. I also covered how employees could strike a work-life balance and simple lifestyle changes they could begin making for a healthier 2023. Team MetLife made a fantastic audience and asked such intelligent questions. It makes me happy to see corporate set-ups as giant as MetLife embrace lifestyles for themselves and one another. Looking forward to many such interactions with you.
