Not getting a good night’s sleep can result in more than feeling tired the next day. Science proves sleep directly affects life expectancy, relationships, libido, cardiovascular health and the immune system. The first Living Well Wednesday series of 2024, hosted by K-State Research and Extension, focuses on sleep being a superpower. In addition to that session on January 10, the February topic looks at the root causes of illness in women and the March webinar is on the keys to a healthy and balanced diet; how and when to use supplements; and wellness tips for women. K-State Research and Extension family and consumer sciences specialist for the northeast region, Sharolyn Jackson, previews the upcoming Living Well Wednesday series.

Sound Living is a weekly public affairs program addressing issues related to families and consumers. It is hosted by Jeff Wichman. Each episode shares the expertise of K-State specialists in fields such as child nutrition, food safety, adult development and aging, youth development, family resource management, physical fitness and more.
