Feb. 11

Enhancing Wellbeing and Chronic Health Conditions

One of the most common reactions to being diagnosed with a chronic illness is a strong desire to return to “normal,” so you can enjoy the sense of well-being you felt when your body was healthy. However, returning to “normal” may be an unrealistic goal if your health condition has no cure. Research has shown that the stress you have when dealing with a chronic health condition can affect your immune system and ultimately your overall body, mind, and spirit. The good news is that we all can learn ways to better manage our stress and make changes in our lives that will not only improve our physical health but will also improve our moods.
11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Native American Community Clinic, 1213 E. Franklin Ave., Minneapolis, MN. For more information or to pre-register at 612-872-8086 ext. 1101
