    Taking Care of You is a University of Missouri Extension program that offers practical strategies for dealing with stress and life challenges. Developed by an interdisciplinary MU Extension team, the research-based program focuses on positive psychology and mindfulness in sessions held over four weeks. Participants learn concepts and practical strategies they can incorporate into their everyday lives through small group discussion, self-reflection and group activities. The program teaches ways to take care of body, mind and spirit health, become more aware of the mind-body connection, and how to use this awareness for better health, respond rather than react to life's stressors, discover opportunities in life's challenges, develop habits that can lead to better health, find ways to bring more joy into life, simplify life and live more in the moment.


    Fees have been covered by a scholarship from the Francis Street First United Methodist Church.
