Presentation Title: The 10 Day Career Clense 

Begin today to find your Zen, no matter where you are. Based on Dr. Chang's book, this presentation experientially walks you through how to infuse more joy and light into your work day while feeling more relaxed and productive! Each moment is a choice and we can choose Joy, even if your current work situation is stressful or going through organizational changes. Dr. Chang has compiled and created mind-body techniques for an office setting and invites you to try them for 10 days. These techniques are fun and easy! Uplift your career to a whole new level.

Dr. Chang will raffle off one of her books at the Lunch and Learn!

About the Speaker: Dr. Lynn Chang

Lynn ChangComing from a long lineage of professors in China, education runs in my blood. I teach people how to listen from within and make courageous choices that fulfill their lives and help the world. I received my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Colorado State University in 2003, and have worked as a university career counselor, adjunct professor, guest speaker, therapist, psychometrist, and body image researcher. Each position has been an exciting experience along my career journey. All of us are on a journey—where is your adventure leading you?

As a career counselor at The University of Texas at Austin for 12 years, I taught students how to discover their life path and make the best career decisions for them. Now I'm doing the same for the grown-ups! It's incredibly rewarding to teach people how to figure out who they really are and what they're truly meant to do. That's CAREER ZEN.

About the Charity: Meals on Wheels Central Texas (MOWCTX)

MOWCTXMeals on Wheels Central Texas’ (MOWCTX) mission is to nourish and enrich the lives of older adults and people with disabilities. We accomplish that by offering the 5,000 people we serve annually a holistic range of person and home-centered services that allow them to age in place with dignity and respect.

As a valued community-based health care provider, MOWCTX offers an array of programs—focusing on social determinants of health—that work in concert to help the people we serve maintain their independence. Our signature Meals on Wheels program provides daily nutritious lunches hand-delivered by caring volunteers who also perform safety checks. But our deep service platform provides other vital services such as home repair; in-home assistance with the activities of daily living; monthly supplies of shelf-stable groceries; food and veterinary care for our clients’ pets; and connecting seniors with technology, just to name a few. These programs improve health, as well as reducing falls, trips to the hospital, and early institutionalization.

MOWCTX programs also save taxpayer dollars. Most of our clients live on less than $19,000 per year; when one of them moves into assisted living, it costs taxpayers more than $40,000 annually. For a small fraction of that, our programs enable clients to remain healthy and safe in their own homes.
