Wellbeing Workshop Series Begins Sept. 10

Wellbeing isn’t something to achieve and check off a bucket list. Instead, it’s an ongoing journey that varies with each person. Iowans can find their own way in a new program from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach – Dallas County.
 
“What About Me? My Wellbeing” is a FREE four-week virtual educational series beginning online Thursday, Sept. 10.  You can take this introductory, research-based program to learn about taking time for yourself, and your relationships, finances and physical health. Each workshop is 45 minutes and begins at 6:30 pm. The remaining workshops are set for Thursdays, Sept. 17 and 24 and Oct. 1. Each session will feature a different wellbeing coach who is an expert in his or her field.

“Wellbeing is not an end, it’s a journey. Your needs will fluctuate depending on where you are in your life. This program can be applied at any point,” said Mary Krisco, a nutrition and wellness specialist with ISU Extension and Outreach.
 
“It’s all about taking time out of your busy schedule to reflect on the lifestyle choices you’re making. Are you meeting your own goals for your relationships and your financial and physical health? This is not about us telling you what you should be doing. It’s about you figuring out what you should be doing based on your own individual goals,” Krisco said.
 
“You’re going to learn some new information, but what’s more important is that the program allows you to take time to focus on you,” added Kalyn Cody, a family finance specialist for Extension.
 
“After completing the program, you’ll have the tools to keep working on your own wellbeing,” family life specialist McKenzie De Jong said.
