The Wellness Group Announces Educational & Engaging Workshop Thinking Outside the Gift Box: Innovative Ways to Maintain Wellness During the Holidays

September 26, 2013 at 10:10 PM

Too often the holiday preparations create stress and commitments in our lives that deplete our energy physically, emotionally and spiritually.  We get caught up in all of the pressure, make unhealthy food choices, become drained by family commitments, get sick and feel overwhelmed.  Be prepared for the holiday crunch this year by learning the tools and mindset needed to enjoy a happy and healthy season.

On Saturday, November 9 from 2:00 to 5:00 pm, the Wellness Group practitioners invite you to an educational and engaging workshop event to help cope with the holiday challenges.  Entitled, Thinking Outside the Gift Box:  Innovative Ways to Maintain Wellness During the Holidays, the workshop will feature four segments:

     Catherine Glastal, Reiki Practitioner, will demonstrate how you are affected by others’ energies and how to protect and balance yourself when shopping in crowded stores or entertaining family.
