Wellness Wednesday Parent Program 04/27/2022 - Fun & Fitness with Family

Program Description:

Pre-College Youth Programs developed this Wellness Wednesday Parent Program in recognition of parents who tackled the challenges and uncertainties that formed during Covid-19; this program will empower parents to connect, share, and develop a variety of tactics that will support them in both their professional and personal lives. The program’s mission is to give parents a space to focus on themselves and offers tools to reduce stress; topics for these workshops will include discussions such as, but not limited to Handling the Transition of Remote to In-Person Learning, Mastering Tranquility for Parents, Fun & Fitness with Family, and Navigating Holidays During Covid-19. We are offering a safe group space, led by experts in their respective fields, to create thought-provoking dialogue that will provide useful tools parents require to engage effectively with both themselves and others during these ongoing stressful times. If you are a parent who is looking for a free resource designed specifically to help parents manage their overall wellness, then this program was designed precisely for you.

 

Workshop Description:

The April 27 workshop topic will be: Fun & Fitness with Family. Fitness is something that can bolster not only your physical health but your mental health as well; making it a winning combination to improving your overall health! In this workshop, we will discuss ways to engage your entire household in fitness activities. Fitness does not have to look like going to the gym; there are many fun ways to get moving that the whole family can participate in. Studies from the CDC have shown us that if we are active 150 minutes a week, it can drastically improve our health and increase our longevity. While this may seem overwhelming at first, when you break it down to 30-minute long walks 5x a week it becomes more realistic. This is what the workshop will offer, fun ways to introduce fitness that your entire family can enjoy together! We will open dialogue to people who want a space to speak about their experiences with fitness and family. We are offering group styled support led by one of our team members who will guide this workshop in order for it to have structure that is beneficial to all. It is our hope that this workshop will offer anyone who has been seeking a sense of community for parents seeking to engage their entire family with fun fitness ideas some extra support and a safe space to dialogue with members of the community who are living the same experiences.
