Community District Education Council 29Q
April 14, 2018 – I was delighted to give opening remarks and lead a program for Community District Education Council 29Q Spring P.R.E.S.S. (Parental Resources for Education, Skills and Success). The theme was “Wellness, Health & Empowerment.” It is a wonderful event sponsored by CDEC offering various workshops for the adults and young people. I love supporting our teachers and parents, which in turn support our youth.
Our Stress or Success? It’s Your Choice! program has been the most requested of all of our offerings over the last 15 years. We’ve delivered it for a range of organizations from Bloomberg Media to the YWCA. To provide context, I share this Power Statement:
Success is a feeling, not an event. It’s a feeling I can experience every day depending on my intention. Stress is a perception, not a permanent reality. I can control it by changing my state of mind and body. In every situation, I can choose stress or success. It’s my choice!
After walking participants through a Stress Awareness Test, we get right into coping strategies and hands-on techniques they can use every day. It’s practical, very interactive and a lot of fun. The event was held at PS/IS 147Q in Cambria Heights in Queens which is not too far from where I grew up in St. Albans. Thank you CDEC 29Q for inviting me again. I look forward to next year! #educationsaveslives
