V Collective and Laurel Marshall. Thank you Wrensilva and Experia Creative!

  Monday night, VCollective client Laurel Marshall, and Founder and CEO of Be Inspired! Coaching & Consulting, facilitated a group coaching event, where participants were introduced to a Healthy Mind Platter™ of seven essential activities necessary for optimum mental health.   We are bombarded daily with information on how to be physically healthy and resilient; a combination of exercise, rest and nutrition.  What we don't always hear about, is what it takes to keep our minds alert, creative and resilient; it's more than exercise, rest and nutrition, and each of us needs our own unique combination of these seven activities:  Focus Time, Play...
