As the warm weather approaches, we see flowers blooming, birds nesting, and neighbors planting. Spring gives us an opportunity to get a fresh start on whatever we put on the backburner. Starting an exercise regimen or eating healthier can be a great jumpstart to spring, but also consider joining a support group, starting a new craft or working on some unresolved issues.
At Buddy Kemp we have some new groups and events springing up! The brain tumor support group meets on the fourth Thursday. The group focuses on coping skills related to their diagnosis. Caregivers that bring their loved one to the group can attend our weekly caregiver’s connections support group that meets at the same time. The newly formed colorectal support group will meet on the first Monday to discuss how they deal with issues related to their diagnosis. We also have craft time every Tuesday for those who want to work on their craft or learn a new craft. Check out our online classes, programs and events calendar to learn about the latest activities you can enjoy.
If you prefer one-on-one, consider scheduling an appointment with one of our counselors to assess and jump start your goals this spring.
Whatever your goal may be, think of spring as an opportunity to clean, purge and rejuvenate. How do you plan to jumpstart your spring?
