WellBalancePyramidJanuary WELCOA Newsletter Well Balanced is Here!
By this time you should be able to find our campus wellbeing newsletter from WELCOA in your workplace. We share these copies in each work area and receive them monthly through the school year. Please ask your support staff if you can't find your current/past issues.

Set better financial goals is one of the articles this month. The author compares setting these goals like planning a vacation with all the steps in place and demands met for the trip. Find those steps outlined in the January issue and watch for news of another campus financial freedom class your CSI Employee Wellbeing Committee is planning for the coming year. Financial wellness is one of the pillars of a healthy, happy life!

What we can learn from the Blue Zones is another January article with healthy nutrition advise that you can also look forward to in our March "You aren't eating enough... fiber" class with CSI dietitian Sarah Renaldi. Take a look at this article and look for days/times and details about our class to be announced soon!

HealthMattersHealth Matters: Plan a Vacation for your Health
State of Idaho Wellness Program

More than half of Americans with paid time off are not using it. But taking time off from work can be good for your health. A vacation does not have to mean an expensive trip to an exotic location. A simple staycation can be just as effective at helping you relax and recharge.

Take time now to map out possible vacation days and weeks throughout the year on your calendar and adjust them as you get closer. It will give you something to look forward to and help your team plan for times when you may be away. Take time for yourself and your good health!

JaneBryanQuinnsJane Bryan Quinn's Parting Retirement Advice
AARP, December 2019

Note: I love the AARP Bulletin because there is always at least one article that is beautifully researched and written, and with a message I need to hear. I have followed Jane Bryan Quinn for many years and believe her to be a very credible reporter. Here are some tips from her parting article in December as she ventures forth on her own retirement journey. Please refer to the entire article online.

Quinn: To all my dear friends at AARP: I'm doing it. I'm retiring. After all these years of reporting and writing about how to prepare for retirement, I'm trying it myself.

So much has changed in the world since the day I launched as a baby financial reporter in 1963. When it comes to what to do with our money, we have tons of options that didn't exist back then. So which should we choose? My advice? Choose almost none of those options. (Instead:) 
  • Simplify your financial life. Raise the automatic contributions to your savings plans.
  • Don't have a plan? Automate contributions to an individual retirement account (IRA).
  • Buy low-cost index funds that follow the broad stock and bond markets; they will likely outperform any managed fund you own (and, almost certainly, any bag of individual stocks you might select).
  • Right-size your life to live within your means.
  • Make a will.
  • Check that the beneficiary forms of your IRAs and 401(k)s list the correct people.
  • Then quit thinking about your money and get on with your life.
If you don't want to manage your money yourself, find someone who charges only fees (no commissions) and works for a firm where no one charges commissions. Keep it simple. Simple is the sophisticated way to save, invest and plan.

OsageAugust: Osage County

January 22-25  at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Theater

Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best New Play, August: Osage County centers around the Weston family, brought together after their patriarch, world-class poet and alcoholic Beverly Weston, disappears. The matriarch, Violet, depressed and addicted to pain pills and "truth-telling," is joined by her three daughters and their problematic lovers, who harbor their own deep secrets, her sister Mattie Fae and her family, well-trained in the Weston family art of cruelty, and finally, the observer of the chaos, the young Cheyenne housekeeper Johnna, who was hired by Beverly just before his disappearance. Holed up in the large family estate in Osage County, Oklahoma, tensions heat up and boil over in the ruthless August heat. Bursting with humor, vivacity, and intelligence, August: Osage County is both dense and funny, vicious and compassionate, enormous and unstoppable. Warning: Coarse language, adult themes, sex & drug use references. 

Tickets are $15 and can be obtained by going to tickets.csi.edu, at the CSI Box Office, or by calling 732-6288.

PianoCelebrationCSI Piano Celebration Presents Kimberlee Dodds Dray and Peter Fanovic
January 31 at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium

West Coast violinist Kimberlee Dray meets Slovakian pianist Peter Fancovic in New York City to rehearse. The duo truly represents the fusion of East and West, characterizing their program spanning Prokofiev to Gershwin. While Peter earned his Master's of Music in Piano Performance from the Manhattan School of Music, Kimberlee studied under famed Soviet violinist Nina Beilina. The merging of cultures informs their collaboration, making this recital of Soviet and American repertoire a particularly rewarding adventure as evidence of the power of music to unite cultures and people. An active recitalist, Kimberlee has performed across the United States and Peter is a much sought after soloist and collaborator, having performed in venues such as Concertgebouw, with Orquesta Sinfonica Nacional de Cuba and many others.

General Admission Tickets: Adults - $10 / Seniors $8 / Students $6. Contact Sue Miller at smiller@csi.edu for more information or tickets.

RefugeeStoriesRefugee Stories 


Refugees Share Their Stories
 
Since 1980 over 2,500 people have re-settled in the Magic Valley area through the CSI Refugee Program. This has been a successful program of providing a new start for many refugees who have become members of our community. Each of these people have interesting stories about their experiences of having to leave their countries and how they have grown to be members of our Magic Valley community.
 
The Magic Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, located at 160 9th Ave East, is hosting a Refugee Stories event on January 23rd from 6 to 8 pm. Representatives of the refugee community will share their journeys along with the courage it required, the sacrifices and adjustments they made to come to the United States for the safety of their families. It is an opportunity for the community to better understand the determination of refugees to be a part of the Magic Valley. This event is free and open to the public and is planned to be the first of several similar events. A reception will be held afterward.
 
Unitarian Universalism is a faith tradition that welcomes and stands up for the full rights of all people regardless of race, ethnicity, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and religion.
