SPRING 2021 VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS

WELLNESS WEDNESDAYS

---------

Jan. 27th @ 11am - THE SCIENCE OF...HAPPINESS

  • Join us to learn about the 5 pillars of well-being: positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning, & accomplishment (PERMA). More importantly, you can use this information to re-evaluate your beliefs, values, and assumptions, reinterpret your goals, and learn how to create positive change.

Feb. 10th @ 11am - THE SCIENCE OF...FOOD & MOOD

  • Do you have a complicated relationship with food? Learn about all the different types of ways food impacts our neurochemistry and mental health, and techniques to become more aware and mindful of your eating habits.

Feb. 24th @ 11am - THE SCIENCE OF...CODEPENDENCY

  • We'll define and explore the core symptoms of codependency and how not to lose yourself when in relationship to another person. We'll also examine personal origins of destructive beliefs and behaviors, the impact on self-worth, and steps you can start taking to become more aware and break negative behavior patterns.

Mar. 10th @ 11am - THE SCIENCE OF...SLEEP & MENTAL HEALTH

  • Sleep is essential for the physical upkeep of the body, but it also helps maintain cognitive skills, such as attention, learning, memory, and emotional regulation. Sleep is closely connected to mental and emotional health and has demonstrated links to depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and other conditions. Evidence points to a bidirectional relationship - mental health conditions can disrupt sleep, and lack of sleep can affect mental health. Fortunately, there are proven ways to improve sleep quality and break out of this vicious cycle. Join us to learn more.

Apr. 7th @ 11am - THE SCIENCE OF...STRESS

  • Did you know that how you view stress can determine how well you cope with it? Stress can be a good thing if you know how to use it. Join us to discover research on the impact of your stress mindset, both on your physical health and your ability to achieve your goals. Learn how to cultivate a mindset that embraces stress, and activates your ability to grow from challenging experiences. It's not about getting rid of stress, but about getting better at it!

Apr. 21st @ 11am - THE SCIENCE OF...YOGA & MINDFULNESS

  • Yoga and mindfulness have been around for over 5,000 years. Aside from physical benefits, both used in combination are proven to reduce symptoms of numerous ailments, including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictions, post-traumatic stress disorder, and more. Now science is able to explain why.
