Registration open for MU Extension Taking Care of You program


JOHNSON COUNTY — Community members may enroll in Taking Care of You, a virtual class presented by the University of Missouri Extension program, that offers practical strategies for dealing with stress and life challenges.

Developed by an interdisciplinary MU Extension team, the research-based program focuses on positive psychology and mindfulness in sessions held over eight weeks.

Participants learn concepts and practical strategies they can incorporate into their everyday lives through small group discussion, self-reflection and group activities. 

The program teaches ways to:

  • Take better care of body, mind and spirit health
  • Become more aware of the mind-body connection and how to use this awareness for better health
  • Respond rather than react to life’s stressors
  • Discover opportunities in life’s challenges
  • Develop habits that can lead to better health
  • Find ways to bring more joy into life
  • Simplify life
  • Live more in the moment

The class will meet from noon to 1 p.m. via Zoom on Mondays, July 12 through Aug. 30. 

Registration is available online at extension.missouri.edu/events/taking-care-of-you-online-cass-county through July 7. 

For questions, more information or accommodations, call Kyleigh Sullivan at 660-619-1355 or email her at SullivanKD@Missouri.edu.
