Join the Bone Health & Osteoporosis Foundation (BHOF) in raising awareness about bone health and osteoporosis during Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month in May! Approximately 54 million Americans have low bone density or osteoporosis. This May, the Bone Health and Osteoporosis Foundation (BHOF) will commemorate Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month with bone healthy exercises and information – for all ages – to help achieve better bone health. Join BHOF in creating awareness about helping to prevent osteoporosis and #ExerciseToMaximize your bone health!
The fourth event is De-Stressing in Nature for Bone Health, on Tuesday, May 31 at 12pm ET, with presenter Matthew Weinburke, DrPH, MPH, MCHES®, REHS. When you first learn that you have osteoporosis, you may experience stress and anxiety. If this is the case, it’s important that you try to manage these feelings and not allow osteoporosis to interfere with your regular activities. Spending time in nature can help relieve stress and anxiety, improve your mood, and boost feelings of happiness and wellbeing. Webinar attendees will learn more about how to de-stress in nature and the outdoors with Dr. Matt Weinburke. Participants will also engage in a mindfulness-guided imagery exercise with a nature setting.
