KUALA LUMPUR: Having problems with certain family members? Can’t get along or can’t stand their habits?

Learn to see more positive sides to your family members in order to manage relations better at the Star Health Fair 2014 this weekend at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre.

Assoc Prof Dr Alvin Ng will be talking about how people can use positive psychology to attain more harmonious family dynamics.

Many who seek help for problems in the family tend to only focus on the negative side of the member who is identified as problematic.

According to Dr Ng, although part of the solution usually is to reduce the problematic behaviour or attitude, a better and more lasting solution is to strengthen the existing good sides of a person.

As difficult as it can be in looking for positives, Dr Ng will be sharing some tips to make it easier for us. His talk will be on Saturday, April 12, at 3.30pm.

There will be other fun activities at the three-day fair, including the Live Great Challenge, an obstacle course with participants in teams of two competing for cash prizes worth up to RM9,000.

There will also be a health bar where visitors can do some sampling and get some nutrition information from participating exhibitors.

A special draw will be conducted for visitors with a minimum purchase of RM10 from participating exhibitors at the fair.

The fair’s theme, “Let’s Live Great!”, aims to inspire Malaysians to lead a healthy lifestyle by being physically and mentally fit.

The Star Health Fair 2014 is organised by The Star with Great Eastern Life as the event partner.

It will be held in Halls 1 to 3 of the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre from April 11 to 13. The fair is open from 10am to 7pm and admission is free.
