Major Change to GVWC Holiday Party!
Due to circumstances outside our control, the GVWC Holiday Party has been changed to the Gahanna Second Sole store, not the one in the Short North. The address is 1245 N Hamilton Rd, Gahanna. Because of the change of venue, there will be no after party at Sheryl’s place in the Short North. Everything else stays the same.
Our annual holiday celebration for GVWC members—and plus 1—will be held 6:15pm on Saturday, December 16. As in the past, there will be appetizers, raffles, and 30% discounts off all Second Sole clothing and shoes. Please RSVP to me by December 3 (THIS SUNDAY).
P.S. If you’re not yet a member, this is a good time to make it official so you can take advantage of this terrific member benefit. Check out more benefits at the GVWC website.
Tips to Improve Your Memory
I don’t know about you, but I don’t seem to be remembering things like I used to. It is good to hear that I am not alone in feeling that way. Here is an article from the VeryWell blog with 6 tips for helping to improve your memory. Tip number 6 works well for me – writing it down. Andrea gives me grief for still using a DayTimer (Google it), but that helps me remember things better by writing down notes, writing down daily, weekly, and monthly appointments – and being able to see it right in front of me. The extra tip the article gives is for people to be more intentional about receiving information into our brains. I think that means MONOtasking versus multitasking. For me, by multitasking, it seems that I am not paying attention to anything!
Ok, do you remember the new location for the GVWC Holiday Party?
10 Habits of Incredibly Happy People
You think happy people are naturally born that way? Think again. They create healthy habits that help them be positive and happy, such as surrounding yourself with the right people, helping others, practicing gratitude, slowing down, and yes, exercising! Here is a great article from Forbes with the Top 10.
