Walk with Ease
A self-guided walking program sponsored by the DOH and Arthritis Foundation. We have started a 6-week walking program, and have weekly updates on progress.
Relaxation can “turn off” the stress response. Participants will be introduced to various techniques to stay relaxed, even in stressful situations. They will have an opportunity to take part in a guided relaxation exercise during their session. They will also be provided information on a variety of relaxation techniques to take with them and practice on their own time.
Healthy Beginnings – Tobacco Free – Ready to Quit?
Whether one is ready to quit or not, this seminar will be beneficial. Participants will identify and discuss smoking as a complex behavior, review common triggers, and review a step-by-step plan to stop smoking. Class participants will learn the benefits of quitting, discuss readiness to quit, review Quit Steps and identify resources for support.
