Taking Care of You - Body, Mind & Spirit
Good intentions to be more physically active, to eat better or to take other steps toward healthier living can be pushed out of reach by all the demands on your time and attention. You may overextend yourself trying to meet the needs of others, to face daily responsibilities or to live up to expectations. These demands can lead to feeling stressed out, worn out and burned out.
Taking Care of You - Body, Mind & Spirit is a six-session program that offers practical, effective strategies and experiences to help you deal with the challenges in your life. Managing life’s demands in a healthy way allows you to take better care of yourself and to improve your overall health. Each week you will explore topics through small group discussion, self-reflection and activities.
