Taking Care of YOU! 

UW Extension, in collaboration with NAMI Fox Valley, will hold four evening sessions in March to help caregivers to reduce stress and promote wellness. Taking Care of You is a multi-session program offering practical strategies and experiences to help you deal with the stress in your life. Managing life’s challenges in a healthy way allows you to take better care of yourself and your overall health. Each week you will explore topics through small group discussion, self-reflection and activities.

This 4-session community-based program will include strategies to:

  • Increase awareness of how stress affects our body, thoughts, emotions and behaviors
  • Learn to manage how we respond to stress with our thoughts, emotions and behaviors
  • Cultivate positive emotions to improve our resiliency to life's challenges
  • Nurture ourselves to improve the health of our body, mind and spirit
  • Learn from and find opportunities in life's challenges
  • Live life in line with what we value; recognizing the interrelatedness of various dimensions of our health and achieving a healthier balance between them.

This is a four part series. To get the most out of the class, plan on attending at least three of the sessions. 

This multi-week session willl be held on each Monday in March from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
