Network Presentation

Wednesday, May 29th
8:00 – 9:30 am 
Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce

101 N Farwell St, Ste 101
Cost to Attend: Free!

Join the Chamber's Health & Wellness program for a session on "Taking Care of You" - a session focused on stress management.

Taking Care of You (TCY) is a research-based program that offers practical strategies and experiences to help people deal with the stress in their lives. Managing life’s challenges in healthy ways allows participants to take better care of themselves and their overall health. 

Participants will consider ways to:

  • Become more aware of the mind-body connection and how to use this awareness for better health
  • Develop habits that can lead to a healthier person: body, mind, and spirit
  • Respond versus react to the stress in life
  • Discover opportunities in life’s challenges
  • Find ways to bring more joy into life
  • Simplify life
  • Live more in the moment

About our presenter: 
Jeanne Walsh works for the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Division of Extension, as the Human Development & Relationship Educator for Chippewa County. Jeanne has been with Chippewa County for the past 4 years, and her primary program areas include both financial stability and health and wellbeing. She is a Master Trainer in Taking Care of You: Body, Mind, Spirit, a research-based stress management program for adults. Jeanne will be sharing some practical strategies and experiences from the Taking Care of You program, and participants will come away with a unique stress management approach designed to help them deal with the stress in their lives.
