Community members may enroll in Taking Care of You, a University of Missouri Extension program that offers practical strategies for dealing with stress and life challenges. Developed by interdisciplinary MU Extension team, the research-based program focuses on positive psychology and mindfulness held over four weeks. The class begins May 20 and will be held each 1 to 3 p.m. each Thursday through June 10. Participants learn concepts and practical strategies they can incorporate into their everyday lives through small group discussion, self-reflection and group activities. The program teaches 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 lift and live more in the moment.
