Don’t forget, you have endless resources for behavioral, mental, physical, and daily living health through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). This is a free benefit provided to you by Saint Leo University through Aetna’s Resources for Living.

Everyday support for everyday life

The purpose of our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is to take care of employees going through difficult times and help them to deal with these situations.

EAP representatives are here for you 24/7 to support you. This is confidential assistance and you and your household members up to age 26 can call for free. 

For access to services, simply call (877) 398-5816 and select Option 1 for EAP.

What they do for you

  • Numerous participants call for help with:
  •  Stress and anxiety
  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Legal and financial issues
  • Depression
  • Self-improvement
  • Family conflict
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • Grief and loss

What should I eat and drink?

Let’s take a look of the Harvard’s Healthy Eating Plate. This model proposes to consume healthy fats, healthy proteins, and also includes vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. In addition, they recommend healthy drinks with water as the best choice instead of sugary beverages, and coffee and tea without added sweeteners. Saint Leo employees have numerous water fountains available; remember that water is calorie free. Learn more at Healthy Drinks.

Cooking for one? Try these money- and time-saving tips

  • Hit the store twice a week to avoid meals that go to waste.
  • Save on salads and get pre-made salads at the salad bar.
  • Buy dry goods in bulk such as dry beans or grains.
  • Opt for frozen over fresh. Frozen fruits and vegetables are close to or just as nutritious as their fresh counterparts.
  • Reach for canned fish, canned light tuna, and canned wild salmon are great options when buying fresh isn’t possible.
  • Look at your bigger picture shopping list. Most foods go on sale in cycles of about three to four months; this can help to save some money and change your menu.
