Currituck Cooperative Extension Help Area Residents to “Live Well”

Website: Currituck Cooperative Extension Center 

Health is a lot more than how one looks and feels. Conversations about health should include all 8 dimensions or areas of wellness—that is mental, social, emotional, spiritual, financial, occupational, environmental, and intellectual.

That’s the focus of Living Well Month, a national event in March promoting overall wellness and the education provided by Family and Consumer Sciences professionals to improve the lives of people, families, and communities.

“The North Carolina Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences works through the North Carolina  Cooperative Extension Service to offer information that will help families achieve a positive, healthy lifestyle,” says Olivia Patchel, Family and Consumer Sciences Area Agent serving Currituck and Camden Counties. Whether you are trying to manage your diabetes through meal planning and exercise, make decisions about health care and insurance, or get tips on effective parenting techniques, Extension FCS has a research-based answer.

To make every month a “Living Well Month,” consider our tips and do the March Living Well Challenge to live a healthier life.
