While portion control and healthy food choices are essential in physical health and weight loss, a crucial element that is often overlooked is what lies beneath: mood and stress level! This presentation will explore the more “silent” factors related to physical health and weight loss, as well as introduce practical and easy-to-implement skills relating to boosting mood and managing stress levels, and their effect on physical wellness. This presentation goes beyond the common health regime—it explores our relationship with food, our bodies, and how our mental/emotional state might be one of the most powerful tools to utilize in overall wellness.

 

Notes: This presentation is suited to any health/wellness event, weight loss meeting, gym promotion, or sporting/physical health event.

Sorting problems into categories is an important skill to improved mental wellness. Often people continue to work on problems they can do nothing about or ignore or avoid things that they could improve upon. Why does this happen, how do you begin to notice, and what do you do with problems? With 5 simple questions, individuals in this workshop will learn to sort out problems that cannot be worked on right now from those that can, and learn what to do in the meantime so that things do not get worse. This presentation is scalable to various audiences and can include a pictogram for younger children.

In most instances, we serve others selflessly—or at least we think we do. This workshop is designed to help participants examine motivation, payoffs, boundaries, relational issues, and other obstacles that sometimes stand in the way of true service to others. Through a series of scenarios, participants will reframe thoughts and actions to practice coming from a more self-less position in service to others.

The world loves to discuss the importance of self-esteem and its ability to improve mental wellness. True—how we see ourselves will impact how we proceed through life, but it is not the sole answer to a life well-lived. Being smart enough or good enough or well liked is all relative and fleeting. Because we are redeemed children of the King, we can untwist that thinking and look at ways to build ourselves up in ways that are truthful and useful to our purpose for our time of grace. In this workshop, we will focus on untwisting some of the negative thought patterns, or “distortions,” that reduce our ability to see ourselves and others in the light of grace.

Based on the Lysa TerKeurst book, this seminar will work through the struggles Christians face when trying to balance being kind and of service with the vocations of their daily life. Individuals will work in groups to identify better ways of using the powerful words “yes” and “no,” how fear plays a role in our use of these words, and how building a pattern of wisdom for life balance is an important life skill. Centered on exploration of God’s instructions in the book of Proverbs, women will be refocused on building the best and wisest life that God would have them live.

This seminar is based on the best-selling book What’s Best Next by Matthew Perman and focuses on practical skills to ensure individuals make the most of their time. Through discussions, participants will examine why God would want us to be productive, ways to focus in on time, and the gifts and challenges of managing it. Ultimately, we want to learn that “being effective in good works makes us of greater service to others; everything we learn about productivity and every practice we implement and tool we use ultimately exists to help amplify our effectiveness in good works, to the glory of God” (author Matthew Perman).
