Social Worker, Susan Rieger, LCSW, will lead a Gratitude Attitude workshop at Golden Age Center, 105 W. Maple, Oberlin, Kan., on Wednesday, July 19. The program will be held from 1:00 p.m.- 2:00 p.m.(CT) and is open to the public.

Rieger will discuss how gratitude can help us build resilience and better navigate some of life’s rough patches. Rieger’s Gratitude Attitude program is part of a free monthly health and wellness series hosted by Golden Age Center. The program is available via interactive televideo (ITV) through Decatur Health System’s membership in the Midwest Cancer Alliance (MCA), the outreach division of The University of Kansas Cancer Center.

“Taking a moment to step back and consider the aspects of life that we most appreciate can make a big difference in our outlook,” explains DHS social worker, Joanne Wendelin, LCSW.

In a study on positive emotions, researchers at the University of North Carolina found that participants who focused on positive feelings when faced with stressful stimuli had much lower blood pressure and heart rates than the participants who focused on negative emotions.

“A program like this offers useful tips to help us get over the bumps in the road we all encounter,” says MCA Outreach Director, Brooke Groneman.

To participate in the Gratitude Attitude program and get information about other upcoming free health programs please call the Golden Age Center at 785-475-3222.
