We are introducing a Guest Speaker Series in 2021 intended to provide information to aid in “Being the Best of Me”. Each day we are faced with choices. These choices shape our experiences which influence the quality of our lives. The series is intended to be informative providing awareness and knowledge to assist us in our decision-making processes.

The Guest Speaker will present once a month. Please join us this Saturday, March 13th from 10:30am to 12:00pm for another presentation in our Guest Speaker Series intended to provide information to aid in “Being the Best of Me”.   Each day we are faced with choices.  These choices shape our experiences, which influence the quality of our lives.  The series is intended to be informative, providing awareness and knowledge to assist us in our decision-making processes. 

The topic is Strategies for Effective Self-Care.

“Self-care, in essence, is the mindful taking of time to pay attention to you...in a way that ensures that you are being cared for by you.”

(Dr. Maria Baratta, Ph.D., L.C.S.W.)

With enhanced awareness, information and a toolbox, the hope is you learn how to incorporate self-care into your life to assist you to address your needs…giving rise to YOU feeling valued by YOU…gaining confidence to invest in YOU and as a result, becoming empowered!
