We say that seeing is believing, but our perceptions can be distorted, and our thoughts can further amplify these distortions. Research from the Center for Well-Being at Washington University has shown that the meaning and perspective we develop in our lives has a profound impact on our physical and mental health. In this Lunch and Learn, Dr. Nigel Lester will explore the power of developing healthy perspectives and provide a practical guide to perceiving, reframing, and transcending problems to bring creative solutions to our everyday lives.
Like all other species on this planet, human beings have developed in harmony with the cycles of nature. In this seminar, our Director of Well-Being Coaching, Kevin Cloninger, PhD, PCC, will explore how nature affects human beings for better and sometimes for worse. He will also explore the healing power of nature and how an unbalanced natural environment affects people in ways they are barely—if at all—aware of. He will conclude with some tools and exercises to help manage these interactions.
