Wellness Forum: “Healthier Brains and Bodies”
Barb Paschal, retired Rehabilitation Physical Therapist, will present a free WOW! Working on Wellness Radio Forum on Wednesday January 11th at 2:00 pm on KSQM FM (91.5) radio station.
Barb Paschal, well-known and admired physical therapist, will talk to us about the amazing effect on our brains and bodies that singing out loud can have, even more than just listening to
music in the background during our day's activities. A gentle dancing exercise in your home can increase your serotonin and endorphins and decrease your cortisol, in turn decreasing hypertension, anxiety, depression, loneliness, and physical pain.
Barb is truly invested in helping people hear, see, and participate with meaningful information about the quick, safe, and effective self-help we can all apply. Her favorite example is creating art by just picking up a pen/pencil and quickly and happily sketching anything like a tree, a vase, or even a cabin. It’s not about the quality of the drawing but about what happens in our brains and bodies when we become immersed in looking at the beauty and simplicity of something.
