You cannot simply achieve well-being and check it off your bucket list. Instead, well-being represents an ongoing journey that varies with each person. Muscatine residents can find their own way in a new program from the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Office (ISU Extension and Outreach).
What About Me? My Well-being, a four-week research-based educational workshop series, covers taking time for oneself, relationships, finances, and physical health. Each session lasts forty-five minutes and can meet when convenient for your group. Employers may even arrange to have it offered to their employees at their worksite.
“Well-being 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 Barbara Dunn Swanson, 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.”
Krista Regennitter, Director of ISU Extension and Outreach, recommends the What About Me? My Well-being program for several reasons. “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. After completing the program, you’ll have the tools to keep working on your own well-being.”
