Sun Health’s Annual Resiliency Event April 9: 120-plus people learned tips and trick to better cope with life

Post date: 4/15/2022

You’ve seen the memes about 2020 and how it was a crazy year. Then, 2021 piled on some more of the same. And, for the hat trick, 2022 continues with pandemic woes, war in Ukraine, inflation and rising prices. And it’s only April!

You have choices how you respond to these issues, and whether you have a negative or a positive outlook. Resiliency has a lot to do with the way you handle trauma, adversity, and other stressors.

And, on April 9, Sun Health Wellness held its annual Resiliency: Mind-Body Connection event featuring keynote speakers Mathew Blades and Dr. Ann Sebren, who provided some tools to add to your toolbox to help you bounce back and find the positives in your day whether you are working, retired or a stay-at-home parent. More than 120 people participated in the event both in-person and online via Zoom.

And the in-person attendees were able to learn about local resources with representatives from several community organizations, including Sun Health’s Memory Care Navigator Program, Sun Health At Home, Chicanos Por La Causa, Ascent Audiology, Village Medical and Dysart Schools.

If you missed the event, it will be available in the next few weeks on, an on-demand resource developed by Sun Health Wellness offering classes on the most current health and wellness trends. You can find the 2021 event, long with many other class options currently on the site. Thanks to generous donations to the community to Sun Health Foundation, both the 2021 and 2022 Resiliency events on the site at no charge. Most other classes have a small fee, or you can subscribe to for a nominal fee.
