Living your Best Life

A military lifestyle comes with unique challenges including deployments and frequent PCS moves along with typical life-challenges like keeping your finances in order; your kids entertained; your marriage vibrant and finding a good work-life balance. Sometimes, it can all be a bit too much to think about. MCCS offers a variety of programs to help you find that balance and live your best life. Most, if not all of these programs are free for Active Duty and their families. If you’ve tried everything and still feel like it’s a #FAIL, why not try a few classes to get you started towards a healthier, happier version of you.

If you’re struggling to make ends meet, try one of our personal finance classes. There are specific workshops like negotiating car purchases, buying or selling a home and getting out of credit card debt along with several others. These classes are all designed with military families in mind and are a great way to help you and your spouse take control of your financial situation.

For the kids, the library is your go-to place for learning, entertaining and socializing. Check out Weekly Story Time and 1000 Books Before Kindergarten and don’t miss the Library Café, serving fresh Starbucks® coffee and bakery treats. The Youth Sports program has organized sports for kids ages 3 and up and of course, with the outdoor swimming pools open for summer, there are even more options available including Camp Wacky Splash.

Every marriage takes effort and needs attention. If your relationship is feeling a little flat, there are several workshops to help lift you both up including 5 Love Languages, Four Lenses for Couples and other various couples classes. Designed to help you better understand and appreciate your soulmate, these classes are offered several times throughout the year.

Active Duty means being mission ready every hour of the day, every day of the week, every week of the year. Being an Active Duty spouse means giving time and energy to support your spouse and his or her mission. This can be a source of stress and strain for both of you. There are ways, however, to balance your work-life commitments and even-out your stressors. Yoga, Core Strengths and Within My Reach are all designed to help you cope with challenges and find inner peace. You’ll learn how practicing just a few simple relaxation techniques can help you lower your day-to-day stress levels.

Spouses are invited to try our workout classes at Hancock Aerobics and Spin Center or have a workout custom-tailored for you with one of our personal trainers.
