MUSCATINE, Iowa–Wellbeing is not something to achieve and check off a bucket list. Instead, it is an ongoing journey that varies with each person. Iowans can find their own way in a new program from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach – Muscatine County.
“What About Me? My Wellbeing” is a four-week educational workshop series beginning Feb. 3 in Muscatine. The introductory, research-based program covers taking time for oneself, relationships, finances and physical health. Each workshop is 45 minutes and begins at noon at the Muscatine County Extension office, 1601 Plaza Place. The remaining workshops are set for Feb. 10, 17 and 24.

“Wellbeing is not an end, it’s a journey. Your needs will fluctuate depending on where you are in your life. This program can be applied at any point,” said Barbara Dunn Swanson a human sciences specialist with ISU Extension and Outreach.
“It’s all about taking time out of your busy schedule to reflect on the lifestyle choices you’re making to meet your own goals for your relationships and your financial and physical health. This is not about us telling you what you should be doing. It’s about you figuring out what you should be doing based on your own individual goals,” Swanson said.
“You’re going to learn some new information, but what’s more important is that the program allows you to take time to focus on you,” added Hoffman.
“After completing the program, you’ll have the tools to keep working on your own wellbeing,” Heidi Hoffman said.
