Chronic conditions can make living a healthy life challenging.

Led by trained leaders, the workshops will:

• Introduce techniques to deal with frustration, fatigue, pain and depression.

• Help participants improve and maintain strength and flexibility, discover better nutrition and exercise choices, understand ways to manage medication side effects and regimens, and learn relaxation techniques and how to handle difficult emotions.

• Teach participants to become more confident about communicating effectively with family and health care providers.

• Assist participants in the development of action plans and goal setting.

Workshops will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in classroom A2 of Henry County Health Center on June 18, June 25, July 2, July 9, July 16 and July 23.
