Camp Soar 2017 Completed!
Every time you think you have seen it before something new and profound gets your attention. This year’s Camp Soar program was a big success, we worked with 13 different teams delivering our “Balance Your Body” activity. This activity includes warm up, team building, strength exercises, balance and agility skills, Core strength and stability movements, and finishes with a team building and edification exercise. This year Live Well Charlotte teamed up with Kinetic Heights to add the team building exercises. We had a great week of working with NC Special Olympics athletes teaching them how to be better athletes and work as a team more effectively. This work really touches me, and I am renewed in spirit each time I am able to work with these individuals. The joy they share when they get to be “just like everyone else” fills me up. The many young volunteers also lifts my hopes that we can make a difference. Showing this new generation of servant leaders what it looks like to be in contribution.

Nutrition Tip: Eat In a Distraction Free Area
Designate a table in your house where you will eat all of your meals and snacks without the television, newspaper, computer or smartphone around to distract you. By simply cutting out the extra noise that often accompanies eating, you will automatically become more mindful of what you are putting in your mouth – and therefore more likely to make better food choices or eat less. Quiet the noise and eat less.
“Clarifying expectations sometimes takes a great deal of courage. It seems easier to act as though differences don’t exist and to hope things will work out than it is to face the differences and work together to arrive at a mutually agreeable set of expectations.” Stephen R. Covey
