Flourish in the New Year with Tools to Create Health and Happiness! (BEUHS030)

Wednesday, Jan. 29, 12:10 pm - 1:30 pm
Tang Education Center
Speaker: Carley Hauck, MA, Intuitive Wellness

The New Year is here and with it comes hope and a desire to set new intentions for health and happiness. Stress is part of life. Instead of trying to reduce it, we can instead learn how to be calm and resilient in the face of challenges. In this workshop, learn the research behind resiliency, understand the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset, and lastly learn helpful tips and strategies to support in a healthy, happy, and productive New Year!

Grit is the ability to maintain perseverance and passion towards our long-term goals. However, we cannot succeed in the face of difficulty if we are emotionally, mentally, or physically fatigued.

Carley Hauck is the founder of Intuitive Wellness and works as an integrative life coach and wellness consultant. She holds a Master’s Degree in health psychology and has backgrounds in yoga, meditation, psychotherapy, coaching, behavior change and nutrition. Carley teaches mindfulness and is a lead consultant for ongoing research observing the long term benefits of mindfulness on weight loss and stress reduction. She currently teaches on the subjects of Happiness, Positive Psychology, and Mindful Eating at Stanford University.

Resilience and Renewal (BEUHS016)
Wednesday, Mar. 5, 9 am-noon
Tang Education Center
Kathy Mendonca, Principal Learning Specialist, L+OD 
Laurie Yamamoto, Senior Counselor, CARE Services

External stressors are real, yet how we choose to view, experience and manage them is an internal process. To maintain a healthy level of stress, we must cultivate an ability to remain flexible and open in order to adapt and adjust to challenges. This workshop will examine common traits of resilient people, and explore ways to strengthen our own resiliency skills. We introduce the concept of managing our energy instead of managing our time as the foundation for healthy practices, high performance, and sustained personal renewal.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Define and discuss resilience
  • Identify the common traits of resilient people
  • Assess their own level of resilience and identify steps to strengthen their skills
  • Explore the four quadrants of personal energy and engagement
  • Discuss examples of practices that support a healthy energy management plan

Please note that the duration for this workshop is 3 hours.
Sponsored by CARE Services and Learning + Organizational Development (L+OD)

Getting Sleep: Misconceptions, Facts and Stress (BEUHS032)

Thursday, May. 1, 12:10-1:30 pm
Tang Education Center
Speaker: Craig Mielcarski, LCSW, CEAP, Director, CARE Services

Deep and restorative sleep is essential for physical and mental health, yet many people struggle to get enough of it. Sleep is literally one of life's health essentials. Yet this universal human experience was so basic, that it wasn't studied much until recent decades. The multitude of ways in which sleep helps rejuvenate the body and mind are still not fully understood, but the critical importance of sleep for overall health continues to gain scientific support. In order to get better sleep, it helps to better "get" sleep.
This class will discuss:

  • facts and misconceptions about sleep
  • sleep needs and changes over the life cycle
  • the relationship between sleep and stress
  • common sleep challenges and disorders
  • resources for further information, evaluation, and treatment
