Today’s demanding, hectic and stressful lifestyles necessitate think time, reflection and quiet moments. Diagnoses of attention-deficit problems have increased 42 percent since 2003 according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Journaling is a well-documented way to achieve self-calm toward greater workplace productivity and personal well-being.

Chew, a college president for seven years, also a CEO and having other leadership roles with several companies, provides deep insights and professional and personal wisdom.


Costs: range from $35 (a 90-minute workshop) to $195 (a 4-session/1-month seminar); individual consultations are also available.
