    • Physical: Health promotion, disease management
    • Financial: Becoming literate in all things financial
    • Work: Central to adult identification, human development, and functioning.

    Stress

    Xổ số may mắn hàng tuầnUsually employees contact us when conditions and relationships in one area of their lives (work) begin to impact them in other ways (life outside of work and home). These two interconnect causing spillover, which can lead to stress. When most employees contact us they identify the number one issue as stress, and we help them.

    Xổ số may mắn hàng tuầnFirst, we identify their options, and from those options we help them:

    • Select choices: there are always choices no matter what.
    • Find a level of support: we express how important having a support network is, close friends and family.
    • Normalize: it’s normal for us as human beings to experience stress. It’s a normal body reaction.
