Upcoming Exclusive Columbia University Webinar
Thursday, November 16, 2 p.m. - 3 p.m.
- ‘Tis the season to be jolly—but, ironically, ‘tis also the season when the burdens pile up. Studies show how devastating overindulgence, overspending, and increased stress can be both during and after the festive season. This seminar will teach participants simple strategies to stay energized over the holidays. Attendees will learn valuable tips for improving their sleep and eating habits, and the importance of maintaining a positive outlook during this stressful time.
Additional Upcoming Webinars
Navigating Decisions as a Family
Friday, November 10: 2 – 2:30 p.m.
- Sometimes there is no choice. Sometimes decisions are made quickly and we need to learn the tools to communicate these choices effectively to our children and families. In this seminar, we will address the questions you may have regarding family decisions and how to navigate them with as little stress as possible. We will address different decisions you may be facing, concerns you may have and how your decisions will affect the entire family. People may be at different places, but the process should be about the same. This seminar will provide you with the tools you will need to navigate decisions as a family.
Friday, November 24: 2 – 2:30 p.m.
- Many of us know that getting along with others is the key to success. Our ability to "play nicely in the sandbox" is fundamental to both our career and our health. We will discuss what an emotion is, why you are having it and understand how our feelings can affect our moods in our daily life and the people that surround us.
