Gateway to Welness
Our Gateway to Wellness programs provide six sessions that focus on exercise, discussion and activities to promote wellness, self-management, and balance in lifestyle. Participants learn:
- how to make informed decisions about lifestyle issues and medical care
- discover how to build a variety of kinds of exercises into their daily routine
- practice setting realistic personal goals so they can balance work, play, family and self-care activities
- develop friendships and camaraderie with other participants which can help them maintain new habits of exercise and goal-setting
Participants in past programs have said: "Sharing ideas about managing MS empowered me to begin exercising every day." "It's a great course for getting your life back!" and "I gained a whole lot more freedom."
Gateway to Wellness programs are held at various locations and dates throughout the state. For more information if a Gateway to Wellness will be offered in your area, please check the chapter calendar or contact Christy Bomba at Christy.Bomba@nmss.org, or 1-800-344-4867 option #1.
