Maximize Your Motivation – Finding your Why for Wellness, July 21 – 28, 2021

July 21, 2021 | 3:00pm - 4:30pm

Most of us want to live healthier lives, and information abounds on how to eat healthy, start an exercise program, and get better sleep. And yet despite good intentions, many of us struggle to achieve our health and well-being goals. 

In this 2-session online course, we will draw upon a combination of articles, books, and behavior science research to identify the factors that can stand in the way of our wellness goals and learn evidence-based strategies to create healthy lifestyle changes that stick. This includes identifying more helpful “whys” for a specific health behavior, tapping into intrinsic motivators, and aligning health behaviors with a greater sense of purpose or one’s values. Students can expect an interactive format using self-reflection as well as group discussions. Please be prepared to actively engage during class activities.

Instructor: Jessica Grossmeier, PhD, MPH, is a worksite wellness thought leader with more than 25 years of experience. Her research includes studies demonstrating health and financial outcomes for wellness programs and identifying best practice approaches to workplace wellness initiatives. She has presented at more than 75 industry events and webinars.
