Exploring Your Health and Wellness
Friday, December 3 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Friday, repeating until Friday, December 10, 2021
Come, explore wellness and health!
What gives you a sense of well-being? What brings you joy and peace? What makes you laugh? What invigorates you? What makes you feel well nourished?
Starting on October 1st, we will meet via Zoom every Friday from 10 to 11 AM, for a series of learning gatherings to explore ways to foster our health and wellness.
Goal: To develop personal plans to optimize our well-being. We will explore several aspects of wellness:
- Physical – nutrition and hydration, movement [or activity], and sleep
- Social and emotional
- Intellectual and creative
The group will meet over ten weeks to reflect and share strategies for thriving, particularly in the age of COVID. We will encourage each other in setting and achieving goals for ourselves.
We will work as a group to support each other in meeting our goals. We will explore questions like these:
- How do you best build new routines and habits?
- How can you motivate yourself to exercise?
- How can you develop better eating habits?
- Are you looking for more intellectual stimulation?
- Do you want to take up a new creative project?
Lauri Winter and Amy Schussheim will facilitate this program. In addition, group members will have the opportunity to lead discussions on wellness-related topics.
