“With My Words, I Create,” with Dennis Morolda
In this engaging workshop, we will explore how the language we use when we speak to ourselves directly impacts our mental health, our mindset, our relationships and our outlook on life. We will discuss language patterns to be aware of, language patterns to avoid and language patterns to utilize to become the hero of our story rather than a bystander. This 60 minute workshop will be fun, informational and practical, as you will walk away with several strategies that you can implement immediately.
