Do It Anyway! Your Go-To Protocol to Overcome Obstacles & Excuses for Wellness

There’s always something to do or someone to take care of. Making time for you is often last on your to-do list. Shifting your mindset from caring for others to yourself requires a mindset of intentionality and behaviors that support your wellness plan. During this program you will learn the 3 “P’s” to make you a priority so you treat yourself with the same kindness and value that you give to others.

Bonnie Artman Fox is a Work Culture Speaker, Consultant, and Coach. She works with senior leaders to strengthen organizational health through work cultures that optimize performance, productivity, and results. She brings over 25 years of expertise as a psychiatric nurse and marriage & family therapist to build work cultures where employees function at their highest level. You will leave her program with best practices that motivate healthy behaviors and relationships.
