In today’s diet-crazed world full of fads and trends, it can be difficult sorting out how to lead a healthy life. A new series of virtual programs being offered by the Corporate and Community Wellness Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District may be able to help.
The series is called Four Pillars of Wellness and consists of four one-hour sessions, which will be offered two times each between Oct. 27 and Nov. 19. Participants can choose to take individual sessions at $15 each, or all four for $50.
This four-part series will explore the Four Pillars of Wellness: food, mood, rest, and movement. The overall emphasis is that health is much more than what we eat and how much we exercise. Yes, these things matter, but so do many other facets of our health, such as who we are when we eat, the quality of our sleep, and the burden of stress we’re carrying around.
To find these programs online at JCPRD.com, browse first under adult and then under fitness & health. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “wellness.”

Mood sessions are set for 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3 (course ID 38940); and 10 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 5 (Course ID 38941).
