What would it feel like to feel productive and focused throughout the day? Is it even possible to nurture an outlook of calm with technology pervasively at our fingertips in a culture that glamorizes “busy”? Living and working healthfully in a world of distraction is possible, but it requires resolve, attention, and practice. However, we can learn to strengthen our internal capacity to focus as well as manage our devices and work habits to minimize distraction and maximize well being. Join us for this lively and interactive program to learn tangible strategies and actionable steps you can take to work well and feel well. You’ll leave with tools you can put in place immediately to improve performance, promote health and feel better each day.


Learning Objectives
