Wellness Challenge aims to lower stress

April 14, 2003|by Angela Kershner

A healthy, no- or low-stress lifestyle is about spending time and energy on things that bring you joy and making decisions based on what you want. If you do not take care of yourself, your health and well-being are at stake and so are the relationships with your family and others close to you.

April's Washington County Wellness Challenge program includes discussions about how to identify your stressors, how to manage personal time and your environment, how to "make life fun" and how healthy eating and regular exercise can help you cope during stressful times.

Barbara L. Bogley, counselor with Behavioral Health Services at Washington County Hospital, and Marcia E. Swain, Western Maryland regional coordinator at University of Maryland Statewide Health Network, are the presenters.

The programs are held at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 15, at Hancock Middle/Senior High School cafeteria and at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, at Smithsburg Middle School cafeteria.
