WILMINGTON, MA — Below are 5 things to do in Wilmington on Monday, November 4, 2019:
#1) Improv For Healthy Aging at Wilmington Library
The Wilmington Memorial Library (175 Middlesex Avenue) is hosting an Improv For Healthy Aging workshop at 2:30pm. In this workshop presented by Meredith Charles from Drama Out of the Box, participants will learn and practice improvisation activities and techniques that will help to improve expressive language skills as well promote faster thinking and decrease stress. Research has shown that learning improv can help “retrain” the brain to actively listen, communicate more effectively, be more open to ideas, as well as work collaboratively. Participants find that they laugh a lot bringing a sense of peace and happiness. This program is brought to you with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. Register HERE.
