How to Improve Your Overall Well-Being in 2018

With the end of another year comes reflection, and for many, there’s always the question of whether we’re living our best lives or not. That means different things for different people, but in general, it comes down to your overall well-being. Are you stressed often, or do you suffer from anxiety? Do you find yourself exhausted much of the time and unable to find joy in the small things because you’re so tired?
It’s easy to fall into habits that leave you feeling this way, especially if you have work, school, a family, and other responsibilities to worry about. Some of those habits are otherwise harmless, such as keeping a full schedule, but when combined with other stressors, they can leave you feeling overwhelmed and unable to perform to the best of your ability. It’s time to think about the best ways you can eliminate bad habits and figure out how to successfully stay on track with your goals for the new year, as well as how to sustain them. Read on to find out how.
In an effort to minimize waste, Bolinas Community Center is excited to have just launched a new reusable cup program for events, with a new stock of reusable cups to be kept on sight.
The Borg family has donated 480 durable, BPA-free, food-grade Steelys cups for use (and reuse) at the Community Center, in both 16 oz and 12 oz cup sizes. Each cup has the BCC logo laser engraved on it, as well as the zero waste message “REDUCE, REUSE, RETURN.”
The intention of the program is to cut waste by offering reusable Steelys cups that can be cleaned and reused endlessly for beverage service at all of our events.
We have launched the program on the honor system, where drinks are served in the steel cups, which can refilled for the guest throughout the event. We ask guests to return their steel cups to BCC at the end of the event, so they can be cleaned and reused at the next event.
We are now getting some Steelys cups for sale as well with the BCC logo in black, which we anticipate will be available for sale starting in mid-December for the Winter Faire. Cups will be sold at $10 a piece.
