We have an amazing workshop coming up with clinical social worker Jillian Rudnitsky called Becoming Unstuck: How to cope with anxiety in adulthood.

Anxiety in children and adolescents is an extremely hot topic right now. So hot in fact that we often forget to take care of ourselves and prioritize our own well-being. This workshop will focus on how anxiety manifests itself in adults and how to develop your own level of resiliency as a parent, as a professional and, most importantly, as a person. The goal is to give you strategies that will help you regain control over your life so that you can tolerate situations that are currently a source of your discomfort. One of the biggest sources of this discomfort is the idea of transition and change. Whether it is something planned or something that takes you by surprise, change can be extremely anxiety provoking. Together we are going to explore the elements of change and how to move with them instead of becoming stuck.
With so much focus placed on our children, adult anxiety is often overlooked and our relationships can suffer as a result. Join me in learning how to take care of yourself in order to better take care of those around you.

COST: $40 per person
Limited spaces available.

EXPO FOR KIDS:THE CONTINUITY OF MOVEMENT – TAKE 2

In the fall of 2016, students from Pointe-Claire elementary schools discovered 17 artworks from their city’s permanent collection when they visited The Continuity of Movement exhibition.

Teachers joined in the process by adopting one of these artworks so that their students might experience it on a daily basis. Over a period of eight weeks, students became familiar with it, looked it over from every possible angle, and were inspired by it.

We have a special Promo for you from WagonBags.

I was recently contacted by an amazing local company called WagonBags.  I had no idea what they were or how they functioned. I hoped onto social media to check them out. What an amazing product. 

Who else has about a dozen reusable bags for their groceries and yet somehow every time you go to the store they are sitting at home in a closet or full of stuff? Guilty as charged. When I learned about these new re-usable bags called WagonBags, I could not wait to get a set. I anxiously waited for my shipment to arrive and was excited to do some groceries with my new bags.

WAGONBAGS is a set of 4 reusable grocery bags that can hold up to 40lbs in each bag. 2 smaller ones are insulated for any frozen or cold items. 2 other bags are larger to hold all your boxes and dry products.  It is environmental-friendly smart and organized solution for family shopping.

 

******* PROMO CODE FOR 4 Days ONLY! Till April 17th  Enter this discount code 

WESTISLAND15 and will get a 15% discount on the bags. Order yours today! *******
