Workshop on boosting energy set

Discover three ways to boost energy during a live workshop at 10:30 a.m. June 23 at the Vigo County Public Library.

The free, live workshop will leave participants feeling energized and provide them with the knowledge for a new and improved lifestyle. The discussion will include why morning rituals could be the No. 1 thing that makes people tired, why cravings can actually help people have more energy, and how doing what your parents told you as a kid can help you get more energy now.

These three steps will be explored through stories of real-life experiences, exercises with other participants, tips from an expert, and a Q&A to conclude the workshop.
