June's meeting theme was “Hunger Awareness.”
The Greater Cleveland Food Bank works diligently to fight hunger and to provide resources allowing individuals and families to break out of poverty. NAPW-CLE joined in their effort to meet the needs of those in the surrounding community. The evening began with a short video. It informed volunteers of the impending need to donate and volunteer to help alleviate hunger for many in our fair city. Christopher Burkett, Volunteer Services Assistant, provided instruction for our tasks that evening.
As token of appreciation from the Local Chapter, Every NAPW volunteer in attendance received a pair of semi-precious stud earrings with a note stating “You are a GEM”!
June was filled with various other activities that provided opportunities for our chapter to network with others. The St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital received $1.8 million in a campaign to support children battling cancer and providing accommodations for their families. NAPW CLE also participated in the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund’s Fundraiser. (PCRF) is a non-political, non-profit, humanitarian relief organization. PCRF provided current information on the status of children in Palestine who were injured and required (or received) surgery in the United States. PCRF seeks assistance once a year during Ramadan. Many individuals are encouraged to support others less fortunate. The evening offered entertainment and of course the opportunity to network.

In May we were ready to exercise with our chapter members, learning and/or using techniques that will improve our mental, nutritional, and physical needs. Get active! Eat Better! Improve your mental capacity! Kelly Rogers provided snacks that enhanced the workout experience. Kelly, our featured “Spotlight” member of July will share her business with us.
The YMCA staff was very accommodating. They opened the fitness rooms, aquatic exercise, yoga class, and made various other activities available. A personal trainer at the Y was available to assist with our questions. We had the gym free of charge so we took advantage of the experience. We partook in a journey into healthier physical routines. NAPW-CLE is making a change and it begins with you!

Annita King shared her knowledge of managing stress under pressure. Stress is a symptom of fear. Are you running your life from fear? Do you make decisions from fear?
Her book "How Do I Know? Your Guide to Decision-Making Mastery". Tune into your body, your inner compass. Use your insight, intuition and instinct. Do you feel unfulfilled if a decision does not work out? Did your decision go against your instinct? Are you making decisions from passion or fear. What is driving you. If we override our instincts we feel off our game.
We may feel the fight or flight response kicks in. This is stress. Know yourself and your triggers. Learn how to interrupt them. Many fear the unknown and believe what is out there is "bad". When we look deeper, we find what is out there is not as bad as we fear. Move forward. It takes 21 t0 30 days to develop a new habit. Replace your fear with confidence and strength.
Annita offers a free 4 week teleconference to help you explore your ability to master your decision making and discover the Emotion Freedom Technique (EFT). Several books can be found on Amazon regarding this subject. Also recommended was Betsy Muller a holistic coach and Ray Santerine, Annita's mentor. She had books for sale at the meeting which she autographed
