Lecture on How to Make Your Holidays Bright
Redwood City, CA - November 18, 2003 - The
upcoming holidays bring thoughts of family, fun, and celebration.
For many, the holidays can also carry a great deal of stress.
To help catch that stress before it happens, the Veterans
Memorial Senior Center presents a free holiday lecture, "Make
Your Holidays Bright." The program will take place on Wednesday,
December 3, 2003, at 10:30 am in the Goldstar Room and is
open to the public. The Senior Center is located at 1455 Madison
Avenue in Redwood City.
"Make Your Holidays Bright" is being presented by Patricia
Wiklund, Ph.D., author, speaker, consultant, and executive
coach. She believes that taking charge when you're not in
control is the best way to confront those issues and challenges
we all face. She is a popular guest on such shows as Oprah,
Leeza, Maury Povich, and Phil Donahue, and has been a commentator
on hundreds of local television and radio shows. The program
will include tips to make sure your holidays are as bright
and fun as you want them to be, along with tips, strategies,
and ideas you can easily and inexpensively implement to ensure
a memorable and fun holiday season. The discussion will also
include a few ideas to dispel holiday blues and stress before
they rear their ugly heads.
