In this session, we will explore the importance of wellness as it relates to everyday performance at work. We will explore various theories of wellness and strategies to raise energy, attention, and strength daily. Specific attention will be given to the principle of “self-service.” To serve others you must first serve your own physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Several success stories of employee wellness programs developed at the Miami-Dade County Public Schools called, “Rebuilding Me,” will be discussed. This will be an energetic, lively discussion to start the 2017 Health Track on the right foot!
