Bubbly Book Bash

Come toast the launch of Eliz's new book!

Saturday, January 30th: 5:30 – 7:00 pm CT

Join author Eliz Greene & special guest Laurie Forster, The Wine Coach, for a Bubbly Bash to celebrate the launch of Stress-Proof Your Life. 

About Stress-Proof Your Life

The secret to reducing your stress is not a better work-life balance, nor is it in meditation or mindfulness.

Chronic high stress—the kind contributing to heart disease—is not caused by an inability to decompress, but rather external factors that are out of our control—namely, overwhelm and uncertainty. So, while most people are focusing on either eliminating or coping with their stressors, they should be working to become immune to unavoidable stress.

Stress-Proof Your Life leverages insights from Eliz Greene’s 17 years of research, including a 4,000-person study, to provide the reader with stress management techniques that actually work. Through data-driven health insight and actionable exercises, this book teaches readers how to: 

  • Quantify and assess their current stress level
  • Overcome overwhelm by practicing stress ecology
  • Combat uncertainty and the paralyzing loop of anxiety that accompanies it
  • Offset the physical impact of stress
  • Recover from the emotional toll of stress
  • Cultivate resiliency in the face of crisis and change

Eliz also shares insights from her research on generational and gender differences, leading high-performance teams, and cultivating a purpose-driven organizational culture that is immune to external and internal pressures.

Once you implement the strategies detailed in this book, you’ll elevate your quality of life, enhance your productivity, boost your capacity for critical and creative thought, and attain heightened levels of personal and professional success.

About the Virtual Bubbly Tasting:

Laurie Forster will guide us through tasting three different types of sparkling wine.* We’ll learn why bubbles are the right choice for so many occasions, and why they are one of the hottest wine trends in the U.S. right now. Along the way, you will also learn how Champagne & Sparkling Wine is crafted, the subtle differences between various styles of bubbly, and what foods pair well with each type. By the end of this class, you will know so much more about Champagne and be ready to throw a bubbly bash of your own!

*Wine is not included. Please see the information about the wines below.  Choose your adventure, come and learn without sipping, pick one or two bottles to try, or get all three.
