- The Key Sources of Energy that Fuel You
We run ourselves full speed ahead with no rest or downtime which makes us feel disengaged, overwhelmed and unproductive. Most U.S. employees and their families are facing this each and every day and are running on an empty tank of energy. This presentation will teach participants the 4 key energy needs that fuel each of us and how participants can increase their capacity in the workplace and beyond.
- Maintain a Healthy Brain by Simple Lifestyle Choices
This topic will cover the health and functioning of our brain as we go through the aging process. Just by moving a little, knowing which foods affect the brain and the act of being mindful can maintain and improve our learning and cognition. You will learn that no matter how old one gets, you can still generate new brain cells.
