WHOLE-ISTIC HEALTH SEMINAR INVITATION

We are very excited to welcome new sponsor, FlipYours Fitness &Wellness and look forward to hearing from her at our FREE WEBINAR 9/9/20 11 am TOPIC: WHOLE-ISTIC HEALTH.

We are all feeling the effects of COVID and having all our conferences and personal vacations and trips canceled. Many of us have been unable to see even loved ones! So, we thought we would include a 15 minute session before and after the program to give anyone who would like an opportunity to catch up, just as we normally would before and between sessions! Only via Zoom, of course!  Feel free to have your video and sound on when you enter, but PLEASE mute yourself when the program starts.

As I was working on the marketing material for the is chat opportunity I began to think of it as a lounge and that led me to look for appropriate videos/pictures to include here. I found this one especially amusing - enjoy and see you 9/9!

11 Ways to Make Working from Home Your New Normal

When you’re used to going into the office each day for your job, working from home can feel stressful, isolating, and nearly impossible. The good news is that though we can expect remote work to stay awhile (if not forever), there are ways to make things easier. Here’s how to stop coping and start thriving by making your work-at-home situation feel more normal.

Start a New Routine

You may no longer have a commute, but a routine can be a healthy way to transition to your new normal. Try these techniques for maintaining your sanity—and schedule—at home.

Create a Productive Workspace

Setting up your work area is an essential step toward productive and enjoyable work. Try these tips to establish a space that works for you.

Find Ways to Reach Out

Now that you’re working solo at home, water cooler chat is a thing of the past. But that doesn’t mean you can’t connect with others outside the office.

There are both significant benefits and extreme challenges involved when you’re adapting to work at home. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of resources to help you navigate the difficulties—and embrace the positive elements. Get started with this list, and you’ll feel better—and become more productive—working from home in no time.

Speaking opportunity for JTF and IARP Chesapeake Vendors


Maryland Joint Task Force for Injured Workers
And
IARP – Chesapeake

Valued Exhibitors,

It was a very painful decision, but we have decided to postpone our Annual Conference, normally held in June, to next year. We considered postponing, but many other organizations are doing this and currently fear they will inevitably have to postpone again.

We are dedicated to providing educational opportunities for our members and the Workers’ Compensation Community at large and appreciate all the support you have provided over the years. We hope to see you in-person on June 16, 2021!

To thank you and to encourage your continued valuable contact with our members, we would like to extend the opportunity to provide online educational programming to our members. We can offer one per month until next year’s conference!

You are welcome to use our Zoom platform if needed, and we can apply for the CEUs if needed. We would need the outline, a survey for feedback, and the bio of the presenter. That’s it.

Please contact IARP President, Mary Sherwood Sevinsky to schedule a time to present!
