Mental Health Awareness
At one time or another, everyone experiences symptoms of mental illness. Too frequently the response to such symptoms in the workplace is confusion, fear, judgment, avoidance and outright rejection. This leads to a worsening of symptoms and a deterioration of performance. This training is designed to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and to promote ways of supporting one another in the workplace. The session will address signs and symptoms of distress and effective ways of providing support for co-workers. The training also will include exercises to develop these skills.

Encouraging Kids to Be Active
When you see the joy a 2 or 3 year old has on the playground swinging from the monkey bars, bouncing on the horse, and climbing to the top of the slide, it's hard to imagine that it may take work and encouragement from parents to keep kids active. In many cases, however, children do become too sedentary, especially as they get a little older. Increasing demands at school and social pressures that make kids uncomfortable are just two of the factors that can make it difficult to keep kids physically active. With the growing body of researching suggesting just how important physical activity is for children, this concern has become more important than ever. This workshop will explore the barriers that stand in the way of keeping kids active, and will offer parents tips on how to overcome the challenge.

Managing Your Emotions in the Workplace
Everyone experiences emotions at work. We get frustrated with bosses giving more work when they don't understand how much work we already have. We get upset with co-workers who don't do their jobs, so we can't do ours. We get angry with irate customers who don't realize we are only trying to help. We worry about an uncertain future. But with all these emotions, most people don't think they have anything to do with how they are feeling. They believe their emotions are a result of an external cause.That just isn't true.

Fortunately, there are many tools available to help people gain control, though sometimes sorting through what's available can add what seems like even more chaos to life. Smartphones, day planners, alarms, e-mail systems, priority grids, voice mail systems, note pads, to-do lists, contact lists, address books, folders, file cabinets and more—the purpose of this lunch-and-learn is to help you sort through the tools available to help you organize your life, and pick the ones that will work for you.

Overcoming Procrastination
Procrastination is rampant in today's business world. Sure, it's easy to blame others for your inability to get things done—demanding bosses, or co-workers who interrupt you for help. But be honest, how often is it your own fault? Are you simply putting off doing what will still be in your in-box tomorrow? Do you make statements such as: "I don't have time to do it," "It makes sense to do the smaller tasks first to get them out of the way," "Once I get more energy, I can really focus on this"? If so, there's a strong possibility that you have fallen into the "Procrastination Trap." Pushing important tasks and projects off until later can cause emotional anguish and keep you from accomplishing professional and personal goals. This workshop will provide you with techniques and strategies to overcome procrastination in your work and personal life.
