This Monday St. Anthony Medical Clinic hosted the second session of the Inspiramos Group. Inspiramos is a health and wellness initiative offered by the Clinic to provide nutrition and exercise education to patients who are at risk for obesity and obesity-related diseases such as diabetes. In four sessions conducted over eight weeks, patients learn about ‘the plate method,’ food substitutions, how to increase physical activity and decrease screen time, and how to manage stress and anxiety.
Because this week’s session centered around increasing daily physical activity, Inspiramos leaders Kristen and Karen taught patients a basic circuit program they could use at home and for cardio patients and staff practiced Beyoncé’s “Move Your Body” dance. Follow the link and try it at home!
