Description

Join us for a follow-up to our Minding Your Mind seminar from last May.  Viewing the first seminar is not absolutely necessary but would be helpful to fully understand what we’ll cover in this program.

As things slowly return to normal, wellness continues to play an important role in our career and our lives. Discover how the strategies discussed in our previous seminar helped navigate the last year and how they can help as we return to the office, school, and everyday life.
