Managing Your Mind Image

Madelaine Weiss, LICSW, MBA, is coming to the Georgetown Neighborhood Library to present a workshop on well-being.

According to Madelaine, Myth No. 1 is that the only way to reduce stress is to do less. Not so, suggests the latest research on mindfulness and meditation.

Through this quick-start, compact training, you will learn a new mindset and gain a toolkit of surprisingly simple strategies to help you stay -- or become as productive as you ever want or need to be -- in a happier, healthier way.

To register, email Erika.Rydberg@dc.gov.
