University of Missouri Extension "Taking Care of You" Program Starts in Joplin March 17

JOPLIN, Mo. -Community members may begin enrolling in "Taking Care of You," 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 sessions. Participants learn concepts and practical strategies they can incorporate into their everyday lives through small group discussion, self-reflection and group activities.

Program attendees 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; simplify life and live more in the moment.

Classes begin March 17 and run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at 517 S Main St. in Joplin. Register at Performance Massage and Wellness through March 15.
