How To Put Corporate Wellness To Work For You and Your Company

While there is no simple solution to the nation’s growing health crisis, it is evident that if everyone were to become physically active, the savings for individuals, employers, and the nation would be dramatic.

Working adults spend a substantial portion of their week in the workplace. In 2014, U.S. employees were on the job an average of 7.8 hours per day, or about one-half of their waking hours. This makes the workplace a useful and practical setting for introducing health and wellness-related initiatives that will benefit employees and their families, as well as employers.

Under the Affordable Care Act, employers with a qualifying wellness program can lower healthcare premiums up to 30% to encourage and reward participation. Companies also can offer employees incentives for participating in educational seminars or biometric screenings, as long as they are not tied to specific outcomes or results. Proven corporate wellness programs, like the ones offered at acac, are a win-win for all involved. Continue reading

Help Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern PA Reach its Goal of Recruiting 100 Male Volunteers to Celebrate its 100-Year Anniversary

We know children will find mentors, but why leave it up to chance? 1,200 children in the Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties are waiting to meet their Big Brother or Big Sister.  Can you mentor one? 

The time commitment is just 2 – 4 times a month, and you spend time with a child doing things you both enjoy, like cooking, playing sports or just talking.

The best part is it works. Independent research proves children with Big Brothers and Big Sisters have greater confidence, do well in school and have better relationships with their friends and family.  In fact, 81% of former Littles surveyed agreed their Big gave them hope & changed their perspective of what they thought possible.

Help “Make It Big” this year. Sign up to attend an information session to learn about becoming a volunteer. 
Contact Garfield Jackson at 484.404.2457 or gjackson@bbbssepa.org.

Learn more about Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern PA by visiting www.makeitbig100.org or calling 215.790.9200.

Why You Should Support Independent Bookstores

“There are lots of reasons to support local businesses, whether it’s mom-and-pop hardware stores or neighborhood farmers’ markets. But when you buy from an independent bookseller, you’re doing something more. You’re helping to keep alive an important force in making our national literary culture more diverse, interesting and delightful. Your shelves are full of books that wouldn’t be there if not for indie booksellers you’ve never met, struggling to get by in shops you’ve never heard of. That’s why it’s so important to support the one next door.

Squeezed first by chain stores like Barnes and Noble and later by online retailers like Amazon, these beloved neighborhood staples are a dying breed. ”

We have two great independent bookstores here in Eagleview Town Center. The Wellington Square Bookshop and The Eagle’s Nest Christian Bookstore. Supporting independent businesses  and watching them grow is something that Eagleview finds valuable. Smaller bookstores have the flexibility to help out the up and coming writers get their name out there. Everyone has a dream and sometimes these big chain stores get in the way of allowing smaller companies to grow.  Our bookstores help our community come together through book clubs and other events that our bookstores host. Make sure you check them out and thank them for being there to help make our Eagleview community great!

Make an Impact in Eagleview: Mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters

Spend your lunch hour with a child who needs an extra friend.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern Pennsylvania (BBBS SEPA) has partnered with Bentley Systems, located at 685 Stockton Drive here in Eagleview, for several years to match volunteer “Bigs” with “Littles” from the local community in a workplace mentoring program. Bigs and Littles meet at Bentley Systems offices every other Tuesday during lunch time throughout the school year. BBBS SEPA has even more kids this year who would like to be involved in the program, so they’re looking for a few good Bigs who can join the Bentley Systems Beyond School Walls programcan you help?

With BBBS SEPA’s mentoring program, you don’t need to change your life, or your schedule, to impact the life of a child who needs a role model.

As a mentor, or “Big Brother” or “Big Sister,” you will meet with a student at Bentley’s office during your work day, once every other week, for an hour. Play games, enjoy lunch together, or just talk. Your nine month commitment and bi-weekly companionship will make a BIG impact! Students in BBBS Beyond School Walls Mentoring Programs feel more competent academically, are less likes to skip school and feel that they would attend and finish college – that’s a lot of impact for a few hours a month!

BBBS SEPA provides each “Big” with a Program Coordinator who is always there to answer any questions along the way.

Becoming a Big Brother or Big Sisters with BBBS SEPA is easy. To find out more, or to start the application process contact Elizabeth Caldarola at ecaldarola@bbbssepa.org. BBBS SEPA will set up a time to meet with you at your office for our new volunteer interview to help us make the best “match” for you!

Simply Yoga Studios: What is Vibrational Healing?

“Vibrational healing generally does not use physical manipulation but employs only light or no touching of the body. Instead it influences your energy systems, mind, and Soul to correct and rebalance themselves through the healing and restorative frequencies and active consciousness of constitutionally “perfect” energies such as Reiki, White Light, sound, physical light, color, flowers and plants, and crystals and gemstones— to name a few. Their subtle vibrations can dissolve, flush, or help release these blockages, restoring balance and the healthy flow of subtle and Life Force energies in your body, mind, and Spirit. Some of these energies bring changes that are fast and act physically while some work slower and deeper. Often it is best to use them in combination and adjust them as things change. What is needed for any individual’s energy to be restored and maintained varies on a case-by-case basis and is best managed by an experienced healer working in concert with them. The real story comes back to the fact that healing is not separate from Life but an integral part of our growth, and that each life is an individual journey of the Soul.”

To read more about vibrational healing, click here.

Simply Yoga Studios in Eagleview Town Center is hosting a vibrational healing session on July 25th from 1-2:30pm. A student of Debra’s at Simply Yoga writes, “during the session you are laying comfortably on your back while Debra works her magic all around and over you. With the use of music, the gong and the crystal healing bowls as her tools, she helps you to transcend the physical to a safe space where you can discover your inner vision.”
