November Give it a Whirl workshops announced

Posted

A support group will be held Mondays during the month of November for anyone coping with health and wellness challenges. The gathering is offered through the collaboration of the Center for Family Life and Recovery and Rome Memorial Hospital Radiation Medicine.

“Give it a Whirl” for Wellness is a creative way to socialize, help and be helped by others with similar conditions or circumstances. The drop-in group is an opportunity for people learning to cope with health and wellness challenges, whether it is quitting smoking for good, overcoming illness or treatments, or facing life changes, to meet with others in similar situations.

The free meetings, centered around a creative activity led by the Center for Family Life and Recovery, are held Mondays at Rome Memorial Hospital Radiation Medicine, 107 E. Chestnut St.:

Today, Nov. 5, 6-7 p.m.: Giving Thanks – compile a lasting document that highlights those things for which you’re most grateful

Nov 12, 1-2 p.m.: Thanksgiving Plaques – create a beautiful wall hanging for your home or a gift to celebrate giving thanks

Nov. 19, 6-7 p.m.: Thanksgiving Social – join us as we gather to share our thanks just as they did at the first Thanksgiving

Nov. 26, 1-2 p.m.: Coffee and Conversation – share your memories and ideas

The public is encouraged to attend any or all of the gatherings. No registration is necessary. There is easy access and plenty of parking on the east side of the building. Benefits from participating in groups that offer support and a creative outlet may include:

Feeling less lonely or judged

Improving coping skills

Reducing stress or anxiety

Learning from others with similar experiences

Gaining a sense of control

Learning new ways to improve your health and wellness
