EXTENSION CONNECTION: Start the year focusing on health, wealth

Published: Monday, December 24, 2012 at 10:56 AM.

If your New Year’s resolution involves health and wealth improvement, you’re  in luck. The Cooperative Extension system is launching an online Small Steps to Health and Wealth challenge. This free six-week program, Jan. 13 through Feb. 23, is open to anyone who enrolls online.

The challenge is part of a national Cooperative Extension program developed to motivate Americans to improve their health and personal finances. It is based on the daily performance of 10 recommended practices.

Five of these behaviors  involve health and nutrition; five involve financial management. 

The five daily health and nutrition practices are:

•Eat four cups of fruits and vegetables

•Get 30 minutes of physical activity

•Drink water or unsweetened beverages instead of sugar-sweetened beverages
