To attend this free workshop, please Register at Eventbrite

Info from Art Of Living Centre - GTA: "Join us for a free Mind and Meditation workshop to learn different techniques of Meditation! Discover how meditation and breathing can transform your life.

Neither at home nor at school did we learn how to deal with our negative emotions, how to let go of the inner conflicts. We all want happiness, but how do we get there? One of the best things we can do to reduce our levels of anxiety and stress is through simple breathing exercises. We can also learn how to meditate and experience the peace and bliss of connecting with our inner self.

We specialize in breathing exercises that quickly quiet the mind and make meditation easy. In fact, we've even had people who've practiced other meditation techniques for decades tell us our breathing techniques reliably take them to the deepest places of meditation, that used to be rare peak experiences.

Join us for this FREE event where you will:
● Learn about the connection between the mind, breath, and emotions
● Learn about the four sources of energy
● Experience a guided meditation
● Practise chair yoga
● Learn how to manage stress
● Learn the next steps to incorporating meditation into your daily life, including how to learn the powerful breathing techniques that are taught in the Happiness Program.
● Learn effective practices that will help you stay in present moments and manage stress while you work to achieve your goals and bring your dreams to life.
● Learn to master your mind and master your life."

Welcome H.O.M.E. (Helping Others Manage Everyday) program presented by Turner & Porter. "There is no place like home. Home is our safe-haven where we can truly be familiar and comfortable. When changes occur within the family, such as a death, separation, or someone leaving home, it often creates change in the responsibilities for the one remaining. Adjusting to the new 'normal' can be difficult. As you embark upon this new journey, we invite you to join our H.O.M.E. program to assist with a variety of life's essentials. You're not alone. Welcome to our home."

Info from Turner & Porter: Attendees will join in preparing a meal during this session. You will leave the session with a prepared meal, simple recipes and a meal calendar.

Cooking for one can often seem more difficult than cooking for a crowd. Perhaps even the thought of preparing a meal for yourself is daunting to you. Join Turner & Porter to learn one simple recipe that can easily be transformed into three separate meals.

You will also learn how to:
● Consider healthy meal options
● Plan a grocery list
● Make ahead "freezer friendly" meals

To register, please call, email, or visit the website at turnerporter.ca/events. There is no cost to attend, however, space is limited.

Get Your Flu Shot

Get Your Flu Shot Flug Bug Google image from https://www.colbert.k12.al.us/ces/News/125#sthash.EN6JBOvz.dpbs

Mississauga - Saturday, November 9, 2019 - 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Info from Region of Peel:

Get your flu shot - The flu shot is the best way you can protect yourself and your loved ones.

Remember that influenza (flu) spreads easily from person to person, especially during the peak season running from late fall to early spring.

Symptoms of the flu include:
● Fever
● Chills
● Cough
● Runny eyes
● Stuffy nose
● Sore throat
● Headache
● Muscle aches
● Extreme weakness and fatigue
● Loss of appetite

The flu is not the same as having a cold. The Flu Facts page on Ontario.ca has a symptom chart to help you identify if you have the flu or a cold.

Who is at risk? Most cases of the flu are mild and resolve with time, but in some cases, it can have serious complications and result in severe illness or even death.

Babies, children, older adults and people with certain health conditions are at higher risk of serious complications from influenza.

Other ways to prevent getting the flu: Wash your hands often and try not to touch your face. This is a good first step to help avoid getting the flu.

You can also disinfect surfaces like countertops, door handles, computer keyboards and phones. The flu virus can live on hard surfaces like these for up to 48 hours.

Are you looking to hire a health care agency to provide the flu shot?
The following agencies are approved to offer the flu shot within the Region. Contact the agency directly to arrange a clinic.

● Care Partners (Brampton) 905-452-7118 ext. 2108
● Care Partners (Mississauga) 289-290-2602 ext. 2276
● Closing the Gap Healthcare 905-306-0202
● Lifemark Health 855-444-0834
● Saint Elizabeth Health Care; Central West 905-826-0854
● Spectrum Health Care 905-272-2271
● Global Health Solutions 647-225-0580
● Workplace Medical Corp. 416-252-5885 ext. 2223

Get your flu shot every year. The flu shot is different each year because the virus changes - so you need to get it every year.

Where to get your flu shot? Flu shots will be available at many locations across Peel, including:
● Family Doctors' offices
● Walk-in clinics
● Pharmacies
● Peel Public Health flu clinics
● Find a health care service - Pharmacy in Mississauga.

2019 Peel Public Health flu clinics: Region of Peel flu clinics give free flu shots to anyone 6 months and older. An Ontario Health Card (OHIP card) is not required.
