Positive Application of Emotional Baggage
Our experiences shape our outlook on life and affect our thoughts, behaviors, and actions. While we enjoy and remember positive experiences, we often have negative experiences that leave us with emotional baggage.
Emotional baggage can come from professional and personal experiences. Rather than let our emotional baggage hold us back, we can come to terms with our emotional baggage and apply the emotional baggage to better ourselves and to help others.
NAWMBA is hosting this webinar, and Hang Chen will discuss about how we can use our emotional baggage to create positive experiences and to move forward in life.
This webinar is free!!! But please register with the Eventbrite link to receive the zoom link.
Message from President
Although 2020 is about to end, we have kept Christmas spirit alive all year long. It's important, especially now during this strange time. This month, we made Christmas treats to thank our healthcare hero at nursing homes.

Wishing everyone Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa...or just happy.

Anxiety in Children, How Much Do You Know?
TODAY at 4PM (PDT), NAWBMA Seattle is hosting this special session Facebook LIVE.
How much do you know "Anxiety in Children"? Do you know what to do? Especially now in the pandemic?
An adult says “ I have anxiety” or if you have a child with a known or common special need, people tend to be more empathetic and even helpful about any situation that may arise…. But what happens when you try to explain that your child has anxiety, or a disruptive behavior? ALL EYES ROLL BECAUSE YOU ARE ENABLING YOUR CHILD, and in their eyes, you are a horrible parent because you are soft, and you don’t discipline your child.
In this program, Nari Weaver will share with you some tools based on her experience as a first time mom of a child with generalized anxiety disorder. She will also discuss how, through early intervention, her son has managed to control his emotions.
Find Joy in The Journey
We know it's not easy to be happy when things are not going as you plan, or things happen that is out of your control.
Our speaker Lien Ngu found some ways that helped her get through rough and dark days. She said, "You don’t have to suffer through this pandemic alone. You can ride this wave with ease and come out living happier, healthier, and more joyful!"
Register here https://fb.me/e/30buOTedP and mark "Going", we will send out the ZOOM link to you an hour before the actual webinar.

HELP the Forgotten People at Nursing Homes!
As the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases continue to rise around the country, nursing homes have become clear hotbeds for the spread of the virus. About a fifth of U.S. COVID-19 deaths are linked to nursing facilities, and all of them are struggling with personal protective equipment (PPE). This project is to support the urgent need of PPE for medical workers and residents at nursing homes. As of April 27th, COVID-19 claimed nearly 12,000 lives in U.S. nursing homes!
The virus first hit Life Care Center in Kirkland Washington, it now has infected residents and employees in at least 4,800 nursing homes, leading to more than 56,000 infections nationwide. And sadly all of these facilities are struggling with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This lack of PPE played a significant role in nursing homes becoming hotbeds for the spread of COVID-19.
In response to the scarcity of essential supplies, NAWMBA Seattle is running this project: HELP the Forgotten People at Nursing Homes. With your generous donation, we would be able to help more facilities to get more PPE and #SaveLivesTogether. We’ve seen the power of our community in action many times before; your help truly matters. Thank you so much!
Your donations will help nursing homes:
Phase 1: Two hardest hit counties in Washington - King County - Snohomish County
Phase 2: West Coast - California - Oregon - Washington
