Surviving the winter

Submitted article

The 2015 Survivor’s Guide to Winter Challenge is a free six-week email challenge designed to help participants challenge your health, emotional well-being, and survival skills this season.

Those who sign up will receive two weekly e-communications from your local Ohio State University Extension Family and Consumer Sciences Educator containing research based information. A tracking log will be available for download to help participants document their progress, as well as access to supplemental information available on blogs and Facebook. A pre- and post-assessment online survey will be used to gather comments to improve future challenges and track members’ progress.

Participants will learn about cooking during the season, beating holiday stress, creating a winter tool kit, staying positive, finding ways to move, cultivating relationships and opportunities, and financial tips. Interested in joining this on-line challenge?
