Our Final "Healthy Choices" Session with Carol Rickard took place on SUNDAY MAY 3 -


Here's A Description from Carol

In this Session we will explore choices we make around the health of our relationships – our interpersonal health.

I’d like to ask you to think about these few things:

  • Who do you consider to be the most important relationships in your life? 

  • What are some of the challenges you find yourself dealing with having to do with interacting with other people? 

  • Using a scale from 0 – 10 (0 = not at all, 10 = very well), I’d like to to rate how well you have been taking care of your relationships.  

   My promise is you will walk away with some new tools and understanding to better help you have “Healthy Relationships’”! 

  Carol's three "Healthy Choices" Sessions have focused on establishing a practical and workable plan for dealing with the right questions and answers in our lives. 

   This Session and her previous ones ("Healthy Body" (February 8, 2015)
and "Healthy Mind" (March 8, 2015) can be viewed at:
