Mindfulness Seminar: "Be Here Now"

Monday April 5, 2021

Cigna Health recently hosted a seminar on Mindfulness. Mindfulness helps you lead a balanced, healthy lifestyle. In this seminar we learned how to feel more invigorated at home and more successful at work by appreciating the present.

Sexta-feira da Paixão (Brazil)

Friday April 2

Part of the Christian Holy Week, Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Calvary. In many areas of Brazil, it is a municipal holiday marked by the closing of stores and schools.

Tiradentes (Brazil)

Wednesday April 21

Joaquim Jose da Silva Xavier, known as Tiradentes, was a leader of the separatist liberation movement Inconfidencia Mineira, which aimed to free Brazil from Portuguese rule. After the institution of the First Brazilian Republic in 1889, the anniversary of his death (April 21) became a national holiday. While there isn't much in the way of festivities on this day, public officials make addresses; schools, businesses, and banks close; and many Brazilians enjoy the holiday at home.
