VISION BOARD BRUNCH

SUNDAY, JANUARY 1

THEME: Make It Happen in the New Year

You may have heard that people who write down their goals are more likely to meet their objectives. Visualizing your goals, however, is even more powerful. Research suggests that our brain interprets imagery as reality, prompting us to set a goal and create the neural pathways to make it happen. If you have a self care goal to manifest, join Elizabeth Cramer & Kristin Schuchman for their next Vision Board Brunch. They will help you create a vision board to put you in the right head space for the New Year.

We make it easy by providing pre-cut magazine pictures and words, glue, cardstock and a few art supplies. We've got prompts to move you forward if you're "stuck" and give you a chance to connect with an interesting group of people in a creative, motivating space. Brunch is included.

What: Vision Board Brunch
 

When: Sunday, January 1, 12pm - 2pm
 

Where: Brightside Coworking (www.brightsidespace.com)
 

Cost: $20 in Advance ($25 at the Door) Six spots available
 

RSVP: findoutmore@brightsidespace.com by December 15
