Connecting Mind and Body for Healthy Living
Your body responds to the way you think, feel and act. This is often called the "mind/body connection." When you are stressed, anxious or upset, your body tries to tell you that something isn’t right. For example, high blood pressure might develop after a particularly stressful event, such as the death of a loved one. People with good emotional health are aware of their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. They have learned healthy ways to cope with the stress and problems that are a normal part of life. They feel good about themselves and have healthy relationships. Poor emotional health can weaken your body’s immune system, making you more likely to get colds and other infections during emotionally difficult times. Also, when you are feeling stressed, anxious or upset, you may not take care of your health as well as you should. You may not feel like exercising, eating nutritious foods or taking medicine that your doctor prescribes. Abuse of alcohol, tobacco or other drugs may also be a sign of poor emotional health.

Learning to Relax
Stress is experienced in the body as tension. To manage stress we have several choices: reduce or eliminate the stressor, think about the stressor differently so it no longer causes tension or change the way our body reacts to stress. The course will address the third option through exploring a variety of relaxation techniques to calm the body and mind. The class will allow participants to learn and experience several simple relaxation tools such as progressive muscle relaxation, abdominal relaxation breathing and visualization.

Reinventing Yourself
We have the choice of reinventing ourselves as a positive response to change. Austrian bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger won Mr. Universe and other body-building titles, then moved to a successful acting career and then was elected governor of California. We can choose to reinvent ourselves as the people we would like to become, rather than waiting for the future to find us. This session will look at getting started with self-reflection and planning. We’ll also look at self-improvement techniques. The role of mentors will be examined as well as ways to stay motivated.

Overcoming Your Distorted Negative Thinking
Have you had an argument with your spouse or significant other that impacted your whole day? Maybe you had thoughts like, "I'm such a jerk," or, "All we do is fight." Have you ever been stuck in traffic thanks to an accident? Maybe you said to yourself, "I knew I shouldn't have gone this way," or, "This always happens to me." Statements like these are common reactions to scenarios in our lives, but they are inaccurate and distort the way we see ourselves and the world around us. This session will examine the 10 Cognitive Distortions and how they impact our mood and create faulty beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. Through examining these distortions we will identify ways to challenge negative thoughts and limit the impact they have on our lives.

Secrets to Self-Motivation
We can do anything we set our minds to. But sometimes it can feel like our brains are working against us when it comes to achieving our goals. Plans to learn a new skill, to get in shape or to save money keep getting pushed back in the hopes that the Future You will handle it "someday." Your attitude and beliefs about your likelihood of success can predict whether or not you actually succeed. If you actively keep your internal motivation high, you can significantly increase the likelihood of achieving your hopes, dreams and visions of your future.

Where Are You Going? Goal Setting for Personal and Professional Success
Goal setting gives you long-term vision and short-term motivation. The process of setting goals allows you to choose where you want to go in your personal life as well as your professional career. A life without goals is like a road trip without a map. By knowing exactly what you want to achieve, you are less likely to get lost, and you will be happier and less frustrated along the way.
