Hello! I came across an upcoming free virtual event on tools for "creative aging"on December 6th and thought I'd share!

I've included the link to registration and description below, would love to hear your thoughts!

Link To Register: onblend.tealeaves.com/creat...

Event Description:

How can art and garden design help us achieve a renewed sense of wellbeing? How can solutions for those living with memory loss and dementia extend to all of us? How might we all benefit from the tonic of nature, even when we cannot leave our homes?

Join the Frye Art Museum, the UW Memory and Brain Wellness Center, and Microsoft in a gathering focused on the power of present-moment awareness, creativity, and sensory experiences with nature. During this panel discussion and Q&A, we will explore the spiritual, emotional, physical, and neurological effects of nature through practical examples of programs developed for those with memory loss, dementia, and their care partners. We’ll explore how the principles of inclusive design were applied in the development of these programs and provide suggestions for you to leverage nature as an antidote to the perils of everyday life during a pandemic.

That’s a good idea TaylorAnne, thank you for your post. I love looking at the birds and look out for robins at this time of year. Nature has many wonders to behold for everyone. Xxx

Thank you so much for that TaylorAnne16! It sounds like a really interesting way to engage in improving your wellbeing. Would you mind if I ‘borrowed’ your link to pass on to the Positive Wellbeing group too? 😊🙏

Absolutely!

Perfect! Thank you! ❤️

Thank you for that , I’m very excited about it 🤗. My garden and wildlife have kept me sane over the past two years during the pandemic and my husband being particularly poorly . We had an extension built which left the garden completely destroyed but what a boon that’s been ! Starting from scratch , redesigning, doing the hard landscaping ( at 67 with very little money and a lot of imagination 🙈) and accommodating wildlife has been the saving of me
