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 Poweshiek County.
“What About Me? My Wellbeing” is a four-week educational workshop series beginning May 4, in Montezuma. The introductory, research-based program covers taking time for oneself, relationships, finances and physical health. Each workshop is one hour and begins at 10 a.m. at the Montezuma Public Library. The remaining workshops are set for May 11, May 18 and May 25.
To register for the program go to https://go.iastate.edu/LBFYNO . The registration deadline is April 29.
“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 Karie Foster, 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,” Cathy Drost 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 Ryan Stuart.
“After completing the program, you’ll have the tools to keep working on your own wellbeing,” said Cathy Lents, Poweshiek County ISU Extension and Outreach.
