We're excited to introduce a conversation today launching our #MOTRcares campaign. This campaign focuses on real-life topics that affect our members and keep us from our optimal wellness levels.
Today, our topic is Exercise and Your Mental Health, a conversation that is sponsored by our friends at PNC Bank. Our special guests for this video include Kate Kelly, Regional President of PNC Bank Minnesota, and Sharon McKim, licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy with the PNC Well-Being Center in Pittsburgh, PA. Sharon talks about the link between our physical health and our mental health and gives us a great, easy breathing exercise we can do to help decrease anxiety, promote relaxation and positive energy, reduce stress and blood pressure and promote mindfulness. Listen in!
