We have a five person staff and I shared many of the highlights from the first three weeks at our staff meeting today. They love it. Thank you so much for providing this series. It’s outstanding. (KW, Michigan)
Susan loves arm extensions as a quick, physical break. Here, she teaches an easy, medium and difficult variation to bring more blood to your brain and body for days when you are sitting too much (which is to say, most days).
Wellness is a multivitamin for empathy, productivity, and trust.
“One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. ... Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.”
