Does it feel increasingly difficult to maintain your weight as you age? If so, there may be a biochemical reason the number on the scale keeps creeping up. As you age, your body becomes much more susceptible to inflammation and less resistant to hormonal and environmental fluctuations.
Think about a time when you felt angry, anxious, or stressed. Maybe you had a big exam, an argument with a loved one, or a jarring emotional situation. It’s likely that your heart started to race, your breathing became quick and shallow, and you felt yourself start to tremble. Your muscles tensed up. Maybe you even felt dizzy or nauseous.

In this webinar with Julie Geeting, Coaching and Counseling Lead at PALM Health, you’ll discover more about the ways in which people are connected to others and ways you can care for and strengthen your own relationships.
The year 2022 is expected to be a time of challenge for all of us. Since people grow the most in well-being when they are challenged, this year is a unique opportunity to learn what we can do to live well. In this webinar, Dr. Robert Cloninger will discuss the Temperament and Character Inventory (TCI), a comprehensive tool he developed in 1993 to assess personality based on the way people learn to adapt to new or difficult situations in life. Through their TCI profile, individuals learn how to improve their adaptive skills and well-being at any age, in any situation.

Imagine a closet in the back corner of your brain. It’s packed full of worries, stressors, and struggles that are unique to your life. As you move through your day-to-day tasks, it’s very common to take any negative feelings and lock them in your mind’s closet, willing them to go away. This is what most of us have been taught to do; push negative and harmful thoughts to the back of our minds.
