Well-Being is a Skill
With Mary Linda McBride

As we are discovering, making a real impact, be it through your investments or in our daily interactions, takes a solid foundation. We must invest time, energy and other resources in ourselves if we ever hope to improve the life of another. Beyond that, we need presence of mind to make decisions and better understand how those decisions affect the greater community. 

It is in this vein that we introduce you to Mary Linda McBride.

Mary Linda is making an impact in our community (click here) by bringing mindfulness into organizations and institutions. In fact, our team recently participated in a very beneficial session geared towards mindfulness at work with her. Afterwards, we couldn’t resist introducing her to our clients and friends.  What better place is there to begin any undertaking?

We will be offering a two-hour session with Mary Linda at the Briar Chapel Clubhouse on April 23, 2019.  The session will be based on Well-being as a skill.  Specifically, Mary Linda has crafted a presentation based on these main takeaways:

  • Well-being is a skill
  • You can develop this skill through specific practices
  • There are four main components to fostering wellbeing - Attention, Outlook, Resilience, and Generosity
  • Financial Well-Being – a brief talk by David Jester

As grounding for this course, she cites Dr. Richard Davidson’s article (click here). We hope you find reading it beneficial and look forward to you joining us in April.

We encourage you to attend and bring friends of your own who may be interested in learning more about well-being.
