A Digest on Healthy Eating and Healthy Living
“The apple in your hand is the body of the cosmos.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
Happy New Year, and welcome to the fourth edition of the Healthy Living Guide! 2023 was an exciting year in the Department of Nutrition, as we celebrated the launch of the Thich Nhat Hanh Center for Mindfulness in Public Health. Aligned with its name and location, the Center is committed to researching ways to apply mindfulness to improve well-being at the population level—not just for individuals, but across large groups globally. Mindful eating and its impact on both personal and planetary health is a core focus of the Center—a theme you’ll find integrated throughout this year’s Guide.
You’ll also see research highlights and tips related to our annual categories of nutrition, physical activity, and sleep, including the latest findings on ultra-processed foods and mental health, turning up the tunes and moving with Zumba, and evidence on different sleep “chronotypes” and health.
Wishing you a healthy, fulfilling, and mindful 2024.
