Local retirement community is perfecting their senior wellness program

Alexian Village of Milwaukee is a senior retirement community committed to offering the best for their residents. This holiday season they are perfecting their recent “Wellness by Design” program in order to inspire care and calmness during the winter. One of the biggest recommendations of the program is to encourage relaxation, even during the hectic holiday season.

The craziness begins earlier and earlier each year accompanied by the mandatory and weary Christmas music. Year after crazy year people strive to “make it the best holiday season ever.” There couldn’t possibly be enough time or money to make all of this happen. Being swept up in the holiday madness and chaos can be nothing short of exhausting.

The “Wellness by Design” program is aiming to increase communication and health, both physical and mental. For those looking to calm their minds and work on their mental health, Alexian Village recommends pondering ways to tame some of the over-the-top traditions that have kept you swirled up in this madness. Seasonal overkill can be reined in. Take a holiday from “The Holidays.”

As part of the “Wellness by Design” program, recommendations include letting go of consumer insanity and embracing the joyful time. If anyone misses the seasonal circus, they can hook-up with it again next year. Alexian Village is reminding their residents of the following. “Gift” in the dictionary as a noun is “something given; present; the act of giving; a natural ability.” As a verb it is “to present a gift to” or “to present as a gift.” In thinking about how to be present, they are suggesting to give someone your complete attention, trying to understand what it is they need or want at that moment. You become the present (gift) by being present. Think about it; being as present as possible toward someone in your life. The gift of yourself this Christmas is the best gift you can offer to someone important to you.

One random act of kindness has the ability to become contagious, inspiring others to do the same. During this season of presents, Alexian Village of Milwaukee is suggested that everyone be present and be a gift to each other, in God’s name.
