February 7, 2017 in Oakland, 5pm-7pm – Having a Career While Protecting Your Health

A Mindful Approach to Self-Care

Happiness, emotional intelligence and resiliency are not simply dependent on a person’s genes.  They are a set of skills that can be taught, and, with practice, developed over time. The bulk of what determines life and work satisfaction is one’s thoughts, actions, and behaviors.  Gyll Turteltaub will highlight the evidence supporting the relationship between mindfulness, emotional wellbeing and health outcomes.   Participants will engage in a mindful exercise and will learn practical strategies for increasing emotional intelligence, resiliency, and cultivating happiness.

Sitting is the New Smoking

Due to longer work hours, lengthier commutes, and more sedentary social pursuits, people now spend hundreds of thousands of hours sitting.  Dr. Christopher Nizer discusses the physiological effects of excessive sitting, the importance of maintaining a healthy spine, and will provide the “do’s” and “don’ts” of sitting.

Pay-It-Forward Party

What’s a Pay-It-Forward Party you ask? It’s an event where you put others’ professional development needs first. This could be a referral, an introduction, a quick brainstorming session, or a handy tip or idea. By putting others’ needs first, you’ll develop better connections, cultivate stronger relationships, and see mutual benefits to each other’s career.
