The Merrill Enrichment Center with the financial support of Security Health Plan is excited to offer Mind & Body Wellness. The goal of this program is to provide participants with educational material and activities designed to promote brain health, ultimately empowering people to lead a healthy lifestyle and remain independent. Emphasis will be placed on the growing evidence that lifestyle choices like nutrition, exercise, mental activities, and social activities can positively impact your brain health and reduce the risk of dementia.
The program will combine nutrition, exercise, and fun educational mind games to challenge participants to keep their brains and body healthy. We will spend time in the kitchen learning how easy it is to make healthy meals, snacks, and desserts. Finally, we will participate in exercises that are easy to incorporate into your daily routine, including yoga, meditation, walking, and strength exercises.
Classes begin in February and will continue monthly throughout the year. Call now to sign up. Seats are limited.
The course meets for four sessions: Feb. 7, 14, 21 and 28 from 10 a.m.-noon.
