This Week in JSAHR
August 26, 2019 edition               

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Fellow Members of JSAHR,

As we head into the last week of summer, it's typically a time for the last vestiges of sun, sand and summer fun as we recharge for an exciting and busy month of September.

Don't miss our September meeting!

We are getting set to begin our Fall meeting season beginning with our September meeting The next meeting of JSAHR will be on September 12,2019, which will be on the topic of Mindfulness at Work.

In this interactive session, you will learn about mindfulness - a wellness technique to help you be present, focused, and paying attention to the task at hand. Mindfulness is a proven practice that can reduce stress, improve well-being, prevent work-induced illnesses, and increase productivity. Come to learn about mindfulness as a philosophy, a personal health practice, and a workplace productivity tool so you can incorporate it in your personal/professional life as well as your company's health and wellness program.
