Foundations of Health - Keys to a Long Life 

 

Wednesday, September 5th @ 6pm - Demystifying Protein, Carbohydrates, and Fats
What is a carb exactly? Is there such thing as too much protein? Lets answer these questions, and more, by taking the  mystery out of nutrition. This month we will go into detail about what exactly proteins, carbohydrates, and fats are, where they are found in the diet, and how they each impact our overall health and wellness.

Wednesday, October 3rd @ 6pm - The Medicine of Meditation- Join us on Facebook Live!
One of the most important predictors of a long, healthy life, is the amount of stress we have in our  lives. Or, to be more specific, how  much control we feel we have over our daily stress. Meditation has been shown to be a deeply powerful tool for not only stress management, but for actually reversing cellular aging and preventing cellular damage. Join  us as we discuss the basics of meditation, and practice some easy meditation exercises!


Wednesday November 7th @ 6pm - The Power of Enjoyable Exercise- Join us on Facebook Live!
Exercise and physical activity is just as important for our health as the food we eat. However, most of the exercise and fitness programs out there actually do us more harm than good! This month we will explore exactly what kinds of physical activity and exercise have been shown to prolong and improve life and vitality, and how they can be practiced at home without ever needing a gym.

 

Wednesday December 5th @ 6pm - Lessons in Longevity from Around the World- Join us on Facebook Live! Rescheduled to January 2nd due to weather!
There are whole communities of people around the world living to be 90 or even 100 (and older!) who are still active, happy, sharp, and healthy. So, what are they doing that the rest of us are not? Let us take a trip around the world and learn some of the common traits of the world's healthiest and longest lived people.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Anthony Dissen, MA, RDN, Instructor of Health Sciences, Stockton University, will bring exciting information about each topic weekly. Each class in this series will focus on a specific topic to give you and your family the tools and information needed to improve overall health and wellness.

Keeping a Journal – An Introduction with Judy Time 10:30 AM Location AtlantiCare Cancer Care Institute, 2500 English Creek Ave., Building 400, Dr. Joseph Stella Conference Room, Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08234

What bugs you?  What gives you joy?  What do you hope for?  What do you fear?  Sometimes we don’t want to answer these questions, certainly not in public
or to just anyone.  But sometimes we can answer these questions, and others, for ourselves. 



Keeping a journal lets us express our innermost thoughts privately, on paper.  It can help us work through questions or problems.  It can help us find joy and remember our blessings, our achievements and triumphs. 



How do you do this?  Has writing always been an unpleasant task for you?  Come to our journal writing workshop and see if writing can free you, help you dump some baggage, and move on . . .   You might even have some fun



Judy Matsunobu is a retired teacher of English and ESL at Atlantic Cape Community
College, and has taught students how to do freewriting and other kinds of journals. 


Light refreshments will be served.
