The Cancer Support Community Presents The Joy of Positive Thinking

02/26/2016

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, positive thoughts make us feel good about our progress while negative thoughts can cause us to lose hope and hinder our progress. In an effort to encourage positive thinking in cancer patients, the Cancer Support Community at Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus presents “The Joy of Positive Thinking” on Wednesday, March 2 from 3 to 4 p.m. at Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus’ Center for Healthy Living in Lakewood.

This program, led by Maria Jonas, MSW social work intern, will include discussions on the many benefits of thinking positively and the ways to do so, as well as how to navigate the landscape of complex emotions and boost self-esteem. Attendees will also create a “positive affirmation jar” that they can use daily to support positive thinking.

The Joy of Positive Thinking is free and open to the public, and will be held at Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus’ Center for Healthy Living, located at 198 Prospect Street in Lakewood. Registration is required by calling 732-923-6090.
