Good intentions to take care of yourself can be pushed out of reach by the demands on your time and attention. You may overextend yourself trying to meet the needs of others, face daily responsibilities or live up to expectations. These demands can lead to feeling stressed or burned out.

Life is full of choices...and those choices affect the body, mind and spirit. The Taking Care of YOU program is designed to help you deal with life's stress, make wise choices and explore ways to live a healthier life.

During this 8-week program you will learn practical strategies to help you deal with the stress in your life. Managing life's challenges in healthy ways allows you to take better care of yourself and your overall health. Each week you will explore topics through small group discussion, self-reflection and activities. You will learn ways to:
- Become more aware of the mind-body connection and how to use this awareness for better health.
- Develop habits that can lead to a healthier you.
- Respond rather than react to the stress in your life.
- Discover opportunities in life's challenges.
- Find ways to bring more joy into your life.
