Find peace through practical spending

Centered Wellness of Unity Spiritual Center has many affiliates that can make 2013 a healthier year in many areas of your life: yoga, dance, healing sessions with reiki, massage and many other programs.

All of these programs have a commonality: they give you an opportunity to have a better physical outlook and, in turn, improve your mental outlook. Some programs at Centered Wellness approach wellness through emotions and feelings. One of the programs that can really help both the physical and mental is "Less Weight, More Wealth" as it examines the factors of weight issues as well as the factors for wealth issues; and they can be the same!

This three-week program, Mondays from 7-9 p.m. starting Monday, Feb. 11, gives you a step-by-step approach to help you understand and act upon solutions for both your weight and your wealth. Each week is $15 and registration is encouraged.

At the beginning of a new year, especially before tax time and after the holiday gift-giving season, many folks find themselves asking the question of how to cover their needs, much less their wants or even a dream or two. There is hope with the "Empower" program which does not talk about budgets but does talk about a practical spending plan – yes, really, "spending." Sound good? This program will be Saturday, Feb. 9, from 10 a.m. to noon. The cost is $30 and registration is encouraged.

And on Saturday, Feb. 16, from 9 4 p.m., give yourself a true gift of a day just for you including breakfast bagels, box lunches, and a new book to take you from a place of anxiety with money through a peaceful process, which can be repeated as often as needed through what you will learn with "Excel with Money, Maslow and a Little Bit of Metaphysics." Begin your move from money anxiety to a happy relationship with money. Everything for the day, including the book, is included in the $150 fee.
