“Walk and Talk” Bereavement Group
March 23 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
The “Walk and Talk Support Group” meets every Thursday at 9:00 a.m. in front of the former JC Penney store at Quincy Place Mall in Ottumwa. After walking, refreshment time at South Hy-Vee provides a further opportunity for socializing. This group is open to anyone who is grieving. Bereavement is one of life’s most stressful events. To keep stress from building up and to increase your body’s production of endorphins (brain chemicals that enhance feelings of well-being), you need to do some “body work.” Walking is one of the easiest forms of exercise that helps fight depression and brings increased health benefits.
