Wellbeing Workshop Series Begins October 15

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.
 
“What About Me? My Wellbeing” is a four-week educational workshop series beginning October 15 online with the remaining workshops set for October 22, 29, and November 5.. The introductory, research-based program covers taking time for oneself, relationships, finances and physical health. Each workshop is 45 minutes and begins at Noon. T

“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 Sandra McKinnon, a human sciences 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 to meet 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,” McKinnon 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 Barb Fuller, human sciences specialist with ISU Extension and Outreach.
 
“After completing the program, you’ll have the tools to keep working on your own wellbeing,” Fuller said. “So grab your lunch, a friend, neighbor or co-worker and join in each week.”
