MU Extension "Taking Care of You" Program in Joplin Starting July 5

JOPLIN, Mo. - Community members may begin enrolling now in "Taking Care of You," a University of Missouri Extension program that offers practical strategies for dealing with stress and life challenges.

Classes begin July 5 and are held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 517 S Main St. in Joplin.

Register at Performance Massage and Wellness through July 2, or go online at

Developed by an interdisciplinary MU Extension team, the research-based program focuses on positive psychology and mindfulness in sessions held over four sessions.

Participants learn concepts and practical strategies they can incorporate into their everyday lives through small group discussion, self-reflection and group activities.

Class participants will learn ways to take better 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, to simplify life and to live more in the moment.
