Mindfulness to Reduce Stress
Thursday, August 17, 2022, 6:30 p.m.
Practicing mindfulness — experiencing the present moment without judgment — can help you manage stress and improve your quality of life. Attend this informative session led by Carolyn Schindewolf, health educator with Penn Medicine Princeton Health Community Wellness, to learn how mindfulness can help reduce or stop brain chatter and habitual reactions, improve mood and energy, increase focus and mental clarity, and deepen your enjoyment and appreciation of life.
Monday, August 22, 2022, 10:00 a.m.
Join Penn Medicine Princeton Health for this in-person event held in the parking lot of 731 Alexander Road, Princeton. As we age, changes in our vision, flexibility, strength, range of motion, and even height may require modifications to our vehicles to help us feel more confident and comfortable behind the wheel. The CarFit program helps make vehicle adjustments to better fit the driver, which will provide the driver with greater comfort and vehicle control. In addition, a trained Penn Medicine Princeton Health CarFit technician will take each driver through an observation and questionnaire session. Participants are asked to drive their own vehicles to this event. We are pleased to partner with American Automobile Association (AAA) and AARP to provide this service.
Please call 1.888.897.8979 to make an appointment.
