Morning Meet-Up @ The Power Station
In today’s society, it seems that we’re all jetting from one event to the next, getting involved with our community and figuring out where we can make a difference. With all this running around, though, where does one find the time to sit down and plan healthy meals – to get that fuel for all of our activities?
Sometimes, it’s a challenge to do so. Fortunately, places like The Power Station are here to help. Located in the East Village, this wellness shop abides by the philosophy that, “around here, the only person who matters is YOU.” Wellness coaches at The Power Station can help you design a personal wellness plan to meet your lifestyle and your goals.
Last Friday morning, the YPC Impact Downtown Committee hosted its monthly meet-up at The Power Station. Impact Downtown Chair Shane Hefty received a free wellness assessment and learned about key vitals for his wellness. You can do the same by simply stopping into The Power Station; be sure to come hungry, as they’ll give you one of their delicious smoothies. Speaking of smoothies, we also had the chance to sample these nutritious meal replacements along with aloe shots and tea on Friday. I can attest to their benefit, as I was still feeling more energetic even a few hours later.

Personally, retirement is very important to me, and I’ve had retirement accounts since I started working and Social Security has never been a part of my goals. While none of the information provided was new to me, it was very beneficial to anyone not preparing for the future. If you are one of these people, here are five questions you should ask yourself:
