Most of us have some kind of habit in our lives that we're either trying to change or want to change. Just because you're entrenched in a particular habit doesn't mean it's forever. The key to transforming our relationship with exercising, productivity, eating, meditating and even with stronger addictive behaviors is understanding your habits and changing your relationship to them. In this workshop, Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D., will explore the neuroscience and psychology behind why we do the things we do that keep us stuck. Participants will be shown how to identify cues that trigger a subconscious habit loop and present specific mindful methods to help us break free from our bad habits and open us up to possibilities and opportunities to develop new healthier habits to take action with. This space of clarity and choice is The Now Effect.
There’s no way of getting around the blunt fact that work usually generates mental stress, and a stressed-out brain performs at progressively lower levels. Too much stress is without question the number-one killer of both efficiency and creativity. This is why it’s vital to learn specific ways to regularly shift your focus of attention out of stress mode and into rest mode at work, thereby giving your chronically deep-fried synapses at least a few ‘time-out’ moments during the day to regroup, recover, and recharge. This session will take you through the simple process of recharging your brain for optimal health, happiness, and performance. Participants will receive a free copy of The Brain Recharge e-Book and an invitation to attend the first 21-day Recharge Challenge beginning in February, 2013.

As a busy mom of three little ones, Katie Kimball knows a thing or two about saving time in the kitchen, but she also wants the best of health and nutrition for her family. From yogurt to salad dressing, the Kimball kitchen is filled with homemade foods with nary a box or package in sight. Kimball's blog, Kitchen Stewardship, is focused on balancing nutrition with frugality, the environment with the time available, all as good stewards of God's gifts. Since 2009 KS has offered family-friendly recipes, science geek research into traditional foods and real food nutrition, and lots of helpful tips with a healthy dose of humor and real-life personal experience. A teacher by training, Katie Kimball is well known for her detailed recipes, breaking everything down into baby steps that won't overwhelm even the most nervous newlywed on her first foray into cooking with real food. Her goal is to make whole foods easy (& tasty) for any family to eat day in and day out. The video "introduction" is really a lesson on how to make homemade mayonnaise, something that is pretty difficult to find using only wholesome ingredients. Her Learn It Live course will cover a bit of "reverse engineering" as well - how to make recipes that call for cream of chicken soup completely from scratch using real ingredients.
