Bio

Hello, I’m Jenny Tasker! I am on the Board of Directors for The Wellness Universe, the Creator of Be Positive with Jenny Tasker, a 2 x Bestselling Author, and Mentor.

A Little About Me – Born an Empath and Light Energy Worker I am naturally very in tune with Spirit and the vibrations of Nature. My passions include advocating for a safe, healthy, and peaceful world for us all.

My employment background is primarily in healthcare looking after the resident accounts for a long-term care facility. As the Shop Steward for the Health Employees Union, I was also given the role of the facility’s WorkSafe liaison. My role was to help ensure a safe and healthy working environment for our employees, management team, and board of directors, while also maintaining a safe person-centered care environment for the residents that lived there.

Upon completing the Non-Violent Crisis Prevention training at the CPI, I began to develop a leading-edge ‘Purple Dot Program’ which provides staff the skills and tools they require to ensure the residents and everyone involved in their care, a safe, ‘Person-Centered Care’ environment. This program went on to win the 2012, 2013 & 2014 NAOSH Awards in the Health & Social Services Category and is now an essential tool used in hospitals and care facilities across Canada.

In 2012, after being diagnosed with a rare condition I was placed on disability. Giving me the first-hand opportunity to use the very EAP programs and services we offered our employees. I learned firsthand where these services lack, and how mental health services are most often missed or ignored altogether.

To help me work through this new phase of my life, I began writing again. This prompted me to start the Be Positive with Jenny Tasker Facebook page where I share encouraging posts and articles promoting your best well-being to my almost 40, 000 followers and supporters. It was through this page that I learned of Anna’s vision of creating The Wellness Universe, a resource of professionals that help you to live your best life. With our shared passion for living a happy, healthy, and healed life, I knew instantly that I was meant to be a part of this community. Almost 10 years later I sit on The Wellness Universe Board of Directors and proudly support and use the wellness resources our experts provide.

I am honored to have shared, a piece of myself with you. I would love to leave you with one of my favorite wellbeing tips. I call it Awakening with Presence.
When you first awaken, gift yourself a few minutes to check in. Find appreciation for the gifts offered to you in this moment. Such as the miracle of your breath moving through your lungs or the feeling of your head on your soft pillow. Enhance your self-awareness by beginning your day focusing on the miracle that is you, and the blessing that is the present. This practice reduces stress, increases feelings of joy, serenity, and peace, and can really set the tone for the day!

Thank you for stopping by! There are so many great resources at The Wellness Universe! I highly recommend you check The Lounge or visit our Blog for expert advice and daily inspiration!
