Tewksbury Job Seekers Network: Calming The Chaos (RR): 2 p.m. March 9.

This workshop will serve as a wake-up call to take ownership of your life. Learn how to manage your personal energy, rather than your time.

Laughter Circle: 7 p.m. March 9. This program is for all ages.

This is a participatory program creating moments to laugh in through guided actions. No need to bring a yoga mat — most of the program is seated, with options for standing or gentle movement. What are the benefits of laughter? Mood elevates. Stress, depression and tension decrease. Immunity improves. Lung capacity increases through deep breathing, enhancing oxygen delivery to all parts of the body. Endorphin and serotonin levels rise. Laughter provides an internal massage to digestive tract as well as improving blood supply to the internal organs. There is no registration required, but attendees are asked to arrive on time. Session will last about 30 minutes.

BOSTON HISTORY SERIES: ‘Perfect Strangers: Friendship, Strength & Recovery After Boston’s Worst Day’: 2 p.m. March 14. Author Roseann Sdoia will discuss her book, “Perfect Strangers: Friendship, Strength, and Recovery After Boston’s Worst Day.” As Roseann waited to watch her friend cross the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2013, she had no idea her life was about to change — that, in a matter of minutes, she would look up from the sidewalk, burned and deaf, staring at her detached foot, screaming for help amid the smoke and blood. In the chaos of the minutes that followed, three people would enter Roseann’s life and change it forever. Learn about these four lives brought together in a deadly moment and how being in the wrong place at the worst time can lead to life’s biggest adventures and most important relationships. Roseann Sdoia is a public speaker and advocate for challenged athletes. She is committed to one day running the entire 26.2 mile Boston Marathon. A Q&A and book selling/signing will take place after the event for those interested.
