Newquist-Nolan Quitner Santa  Barbara presented their December Smart & Savvy Senior Living Seminar at The University Club where December speaker Life Coach Dr. Kathy Gruver gave an inspiring talk on Holiday Joy, with tips to stay in the light, and be happy during the holiday season and featured helpful  tips on how we can choose to focus on gratitude, exercise, learning, nature, animals, laughter, positivity, and love to be our best during the holidays.

The theme of Dr. Gruver’s talk was perfect as the holidays approach; a time when being alone or away from family can bring on the blues. Her list of choices to stay positive and not negative was a helpful reminder to all to find things that make us happy and totally enjoy them.

Senior guests were all gifted a pair of fun Holiday glasses to wear, along with a lovely flowering plant to take home. When Dr. Grover unexpectedly turned on the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams and insisted everyone dance, as an example of how dancing lifts your spirits, it was so much fun and totally uplifting to see everyone wearing their funny holiday glasses while dancing around the room and clapping.
