Taking Care of You
Be sure to check out this month’s free Wellbeats Take Care of You program. Feel like you’re running on empty by the end of the day? Do you tend to put your own needs last? Take some time to refocus on you and your well-being. This four-week program includes a daily schedule of classes to restore energy, elevate your mood and focus on your health and happiness. Choose the class that fits your needs—maybe it’s a relaxing meditation or yoga class (such as Gratitude Meditation and Therapeutic Yoga), or a feel-good workout (such as Power Circuits or Sunrise Run). Class categories include yoga, meditation/mindfulness, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), walking/running and strength training.
Give these back-to-school classes a try:
MCPS staff continues to have free access to Wellbeats, which offers 24/7 virtual classes. These classes can be streamed on your personal devices at home, school or on the go. You can schedule classes in advance and invite your coworkers to join in; you also can download classes to play when you are offline. See this flyer for log-in information.
