Connections Over Coffee: Recap of Nova Place’s Tenant Event on Stress Awareness

This week marked the inaugural event of our morning series, Connections Over Coffee. Tenants gathered for meaningful conversations, delectable treats, and a shared exploration of stress management techniques. Connections Over Coffee kicked off by fostering a sense of community and well-being among our diverse tenant base.

With April being Stress Awareness Month, the theme of the day centered around holistic well-being. We were fortunate to have Haley Tamilia, Union Fitness Head Yoga Instructor, join us. Haley shared insights and engaged in one-on-one discussions with tenants, guiding them through mindfulness techniques to manage stress effectively.

A giant whiteboard served as a communal canvas, where tenants wrote their stress-relief strategies on sticky notes. From meditative walks to indulging in hobbies, the board became a vibrant tapestry of shared experiences and collective wisdom.

The aroma of freshly brewed coffee mingled with the scent of delectable biscuits from our Northside neighbors at Wise County Biscuits. Nestled on the North Side, their savory biscuits provided the perfect canvas for an array of toppings. From indulgent sausage gravy to the sweet allure of honey butter and strawberry jam, or the tangy kick of pimento cheese, there was something to tantalize every palate.

As we savored our biscuits and sipped on coffee, apple juice, orange juice, or water, we were delighted by the delicious samples from Nothing Bundt Cakes. Their tasty treats offered a glimpse of what's to come as they prepare to grace Nova Place on Thursday, April 25th. Mark your calendars, because the first 50 attendees will receive a tempting BOGO deal on their signature Bundtlets!

As the event drew to a close, we departed with hearts full of gratitude to our tenants, neighbors, and collaborators for making this morning truly memorable.

Our next event in May will be lunchtime Bingo!
