An MTSU alumna whose professional specialty is creating business and home environments that promote good feelings will share her expertise during a day of MTSU-sponsored health and wellness activities.
Lori Bell, a 1992 MTSU graduate who applies her understanding of color theory to interior design, will speak at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26, in Maney Hall at Oaklands Mansion, 901 N. Maney Ave. in Murfreesboro after a 5 p.m. reception at the facility.
Using her understanding of color theory, Bell says, she creates interiors that aid physical, emotional and spiritual healing by evoking specific emotions. She is a senior interior designer with EOA Architects in Nashville and has designed corporate, educational, hospitality, health care, multifamily, religious and residential projects.
Before Bell’s lecture, MTSU’s College of Behavioral and Health Sciences will host the MT Engage Self-Care and Well-Being Fair from 2 to 4:30 p.m. on campus.
With the theme of “Professionals Taking Care,” the fair will feature information from the college’s various departments on avoiding the burnout and compassion fatigue often experienced by people in the helping professions.
The fair, which is a part of the university’s second annual MT Engage Week, also will emphasize healthy ways to cope with competing priorities, identify sources of stress and creating work-life balance. Topics will include sleep, nutrition, mindfulness and meditation, massages, self-care hobbies and activities, yoga and physical exercise.
A campus parking map is available at http://tinyurl.com/MTSUParkingMap. Off-campus visitors attending the fair should obtain a special one-day permit from MTSU’s Office of Parking and Transportation at www.mtsu.edu/parking/visit.php.
Both Bell’s lecture and the Self-Care and Well-Being Fair are free and open to the public.
The MTSU Department of Human Sciences and the MTSU student chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers/ International Interior Design Association, commonly known as ASID/IIDA, are presenting Bell’s lecture.
