WORK HARD, PLAY HARD : Annual Mother Daughter Event

Working hard and playing hard is about living our lives to the fullest!
Bobbi Mooney and her daughter Shaylyn will join us, as we will explore how to live life in a healthy balance of work and play as girls and women. We know that all work and no play is NO FUN! And we know that increasing leisure time in our society has brought unintended additional stress for some. We will look at some practices or disciplines that will help us succeed both at school and in our jobs. We will add our creativity to technology enablers to find ways to apply the "Ate It" law to work, which makes us smarter workers and creates more time for play. We will also look at the importance of play in our lives and think of ways to stay playful even after we're grown up!
