Wellness workshops | Ingredients for an ideal day

Ingredients for an Ideal Day

Everyone talks about wanting to be healthier or happier, but what does this actually mean? In this offering, I draw on positive psychology to help people take a powerful first step towards the answer.

Getting clear on what makes a regular day great for you will help you create your own personal formula for greater wellness and well-being. It might include an early rise with granola, or a state of creative flow only reachable at 2:00 AM. A solo walk on the beach, or a laughter-filled lunch with friends, or aspects of both.

Understanding the ingredients you need for a great day will motivate you to build the life you want to live. Participants walk away with a plan for small yet practical adjustments to infuse their everyday lives with greater health and happiness.

Thriving Through The Holidays

“The most wonderful time of the year” is a beautiful sentiment, but for many people the holidays are stressful.

From challenging family interactions to shopping for the “perfect” gift within your budget to managing your health through it all, the festive season often leaves us feeling harried. Learn two easy and fun strategies for a healthy, happy holiday, so you can welcome 2018 bright-eyed and joy-filled.
