This event is over, but all the activities can be found at the Kelsey@Home page,

During the pandemic we have heard a lot about “self-care,” but what exactly does that mean? At the most basic level, it is how we take care of ourselves. The food we eat, the exercise we do to stay healthy, and the medicine we take when we get sick. However, self-care is more than that. It includes all the things we do to stay happy and healthy. That could be taking a walk or a run outside, or doing some arts and crafts. Maybe it’s playing a favorite sport with friends, or trying a new recipe.

During this virtual Family Week, we’ll learn about how people in the ancient Mediterranean practiced self-care. We’ll even try out some of their techniques for ourselves.

We kick off the week with an introductory tour about ancient self-care. Be sure to join us on Sunday, March 28, at 2 PM. We will take a closer look at some objects in the Kelsey collection related to health and wellness. Join us on Zoom:
