Level Up, 2023!
Date: January 27th - 29th, 2023
Location: Elohee Retreat Center in Sautee, GA
Want to learn proven strategies to give your New Year’s resolutions a huge boost this year? Join me for this inspiring and relaxing retreat which combines mindfulness instruction with powerful strategies for motivation and focus.
Many people assume that they will not be able to change their long held habits such as procrastination and/or difficulty sticking to a task or goal, but research has shown that these habits can be changed at any age. Great news, right!?! This is because of neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to change over time which is important when trying to improve Executive Functioning (a range of cognitive skills that help us regulate our behavior and accomplish goals). This retreat will focus on improving Executive Functioning as well as enhancing motivation all year long.
Level Up, 2023 will be both informative and restorative. You will be learning straightforward and easy-to-implement steps, supplemented with plenty of discussions and examples of real-life application. Expect a healthy dose of humor as well as reminders to be compassionate with yourself. In addition, mindfulness techniques will be threaded throughout the program, because a calm mind helps with both learning as well as implementing your new skills upon returning to daily life.
-Learn how thought processes either help or hinder goals
-Learn how to shift thoughts in a manner that supports success
