For National Wellness Month take the GetSetUp wellness challenge and care a bit more for yourself with a meditation class, a new exercise class, or healthy new meals to keep you well.
August is National Wellness Month. This is the month to focus on self-care, managing stress, and promoting healthy habits. Focus this month on creating healthy routines in your life and see how much better you will feel. GetSetUp has a special series of classes and a fun challenge to help you reach your goals!
Research has shown that too much stress and not enough self-care leads to problems, and the surest way to promote wellness is through self-care.
So this month, take the GetSetUp Wellness Challenge and care a bit more for yourself with a meditation class, a new exercise class, or healthy new meals to keep you well.
There are numerous areas of wellness that you can improve, so join a class in multiple areas to meet other like-minded older adults striving for wellness:
- Through fitness classes
- Through healthy eating classes
- Through meditation and mindfulness classes
- Through positive thinking and gratitude classes
- Through brain games
- Through classes on managing aging ailments
Small steps with peers can lead to long-term healthy habits in your lifestyle as you meet others who share your passion for wellness!
