Classes today to cover relaxation, diabetes
WorkLife Programs is offering a course on guided imagery today (March 23) as part of its 12-week program, "Stress Relief and Reduction," facilitated by Amber Simons, worklife wellness specialist. Also available is a class on pre-diabetes, presented by Karen Hosterman-Sabel, registered dietitian.
"Guided Imagery" will be held from 12:10 to 12:50 p.m. in Stewart Center, Room 202
Guided imagery is a technique using thoughts and suggestions to direct a person's imagination toward a relaxed, focused state. Participants will practice using their senses to connect their body and mind and respond as though what they are imagining is real.
"Pre-Diabetes: What is it, What do I do?" will be held from noon to 1 p.m. in Stewart Center, Room 313.
If you or a family member faces pre-diabetes, you might think an eventual diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes is inevitable. That doesn't have to be the case. Participants will find out what defines pre-diabetes and what practical actions they can take to ward off diabetes, instead of moving toward it.
