SFH offers class on dealing with holiday stress

LITCHFIELD (Dec. 7, 2017) – HSHS St. Francis Hospital will hold its next Healthy is Fun class, “Stress-Free Holidays,” from 5-6:30 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 14, in the hospital auditorium.

Bridget Rolens, MA, BSOT, mind-body skills instructor at St. John’s Hospital, will be the guest speaker. Following her presentation will be a gift-wrapping demonstration. Refreshments will be served.

“The holidays bring the joy of connecting with friends and family in festive ways,” said Rolens. “They can also be stressful as you shop for gifts, plan holiday gatherings and try to fit everything into your schedule. This Healthy is Fun event will give you a ‘gift bag’ of ways to relax the body and calm the mind in the midst of the busyness of the holidays.”

“The purpose of these Healthy is Fun classes is to have an informational health topic presented as well as something fun to do after the presentation,” said Meghan Bertolino, community outreach facilitator at the hospital. “We wanted individuals to be able to attend the sessions, perhaps bring a friend or two and to just get out and enjoy themselves. Maybe they will lear na new, fun skill and have some laughter, too.”

There is a $5 fee to cover supplies. Registration is preferred. Additional Healthy is Fun classes are being planned for 2018. For more information or to register, call (217) 324-8678.
