Healthy for Life invites you to join the eight-week mindfulness-based stress reduction program. The program is open to faculty and staff members and their partners and spouses.

This program has three decades of research showing its efficacy at helping people who are coping with job- or family-related stress, depression, anxiety or other medical problems. The program provides tools for responding to the stress associated with illness and everyday life with greater skill and creativity using formal mindfulness techniques (meditation, yoga and body scan) and information about stress, communication and wellness.

Orientation: 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 21

Classes: 5-7 p.m. Wednesdays, Jan. 28 through March 18

Full-day retreat: TBA

The $40 class fee includes a manual, DVD and CD ($20 rebate if you attend seven of eight classes). Spouses or partners can join with you free of charge if they use the same materials. Community members can join for $180 (limited availability). Register online today.

This course can earn eligible employees 100 points towards the newly expanded 2015 Wellness Incentive, which will pay you up to $450 for taking steps to live a healthier life.

See more information online. For additional information, email Lynn Rossy before Dec. 18 or Maureen Hall after Dec. 18.
