Work & Productivity Classes
It is in our nature to explore, creative and contribute to a larger cause.
It is truly astounding as to how self-centered we've become as Americans. "Look out for #1" and "Grab all you can get" are such common mantras that many people never consider the unwanted consequences of this level of egocentric living. Is it any wonder, then, that loneliness, depression, emptiness and self-destructive behaviors also pervade our emotional landscape? The sad irony is that this means we're missing a crucial aspect of life...the vibrant heartbeat of community.
As history demonstrates, when disaster strikes, people pull together, share, assist and care in the context of community. Folks later remember this as one of their happiest moments precisely because of the genuine sharing and caring. The value we find in our work, our reason for living, and all that we put out hands to boils down to our view of our place in the world and the worth of our contributions to others. Why, then, are we ever lulled into a "me first" mindset? Very. Good. Question.

NOTE: All classes are 4 weeks as they are designed to be completed during a 30-day period. There may be multiple class units on the same topic (e.g., Self-Esteem 101; Self-Esteem 102, etc.), which means classes must be taken in order as higher level courses build upon the previous ones.

“I used to always be so worried about upsetting people. I never wanted anyone to be mad at me because it made me feel so horrible, like I'd let them down. After taking classes at the Mental Fitness Institute, I realized that I just needed to be me. Nobody else. And those who loved me for me...well, that's who I'd want in my life anyway. I'm just saying that if I can make that kind of change, anybody can.”
