We delivered these gorgeous poinsettias to our Creation Health Coaches, thanking them for implementing the program on the front lines in their departments, to their co-workers & patients. In fact, this Christmas season they are focusing on O - Outlook by creating opportunities for the people in their units to count their Christmas blessings. Some have made bulletin boards, others have set out collection jars/boxes and others have decorated trees/wreaths, anything they can use to allow people the chance to write down & display the things they are most thankful for this holiday season. Counting our blessings is one way to keep a positive outlook on life, which has a direct correlation to good health.
We have also had the opportunity to participate in 3 different community events over the past few weeks!
We set-up a booth, passed out materials & gave away door prizes at both the Town of Greeneville Wellness Fair for employees & the Takoma Diabetes Fair. I also had the privilege of speaking at the Roby Center again, this time giving them tips for a healthy holiday season, while Joanie Scott (Takoma dietician who happens to be one of our awesome coaches) let them taste test healthy holiday recipes. It turned out to be a fun little holiday party!
Since this is most likely the last time you will hear from me in 2015, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year! See you in 2016!
