Cooperative Extension to kick off ‘lunch and learn’ series

A new “lunch and learn” opportunity at the Lincoln County Cooperative Extension is about to kick off, with sessions to take place every Tuesday and Thursday in March.
The series, “Small Steps to Health and Wealth,” is part of a national Extension curriculum identifying 25 small steps that can help individuals improve both their physical and financial health simultaneously.
Leigh Guth, family and consumer science agent at the county’s Extension Office, said the classes will come “just in time to rescue failed New Year’s resolutions to improve health and personal finances.”
“Research shows that physical health and financial health are directly connected,” Guth said. “Poor health can cause financial strain, just as financial trauma can affect one’s health. Good health and wealth take time to develop and maintain. Additionally, individuals who set goals and monitor their progress tend to be more successful in achieving health and wealth goals.”
The group will meet, beginning this Tuesday, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Extension’s conference room at the Citizens Center in downtown Lincolnton.
Each session will feature the exploration of several of the 25 strategies about time, control, knowledge, automation and environment that can impact health and wealth goals. Participants, who do not need to attend all eight sessions, are encouraged to bring a bag lunch.
