• Stress reduction: Stress can negatively impact your daily life and can take a toll on your mental and physical well-being. Our program will teach stress management techniques so can you can face the world confidently.
• Learning problem solving: Problem solving skills are important because they allow us to have control over our environment. This is good for stress management and overall confidence.
• Creating a healthy and optimal exercise program: Regular physical activity can help individuals maintain a healthy weight, avoid chronic diseases, and stay more independent as they age. Exercise can also improve balance and reduce the risk of falls as you age.
We also believe that it is important to make mental health a priority. Participating in social and leisure activities can help to lower the risk of developing mental health problems. In fact, research shows that attending social events or spending time with others can benefit brain health. Individuals who spend time with others often also tend to have lower rates of disability and death.
