Developing positive lifestyle habits, such as exercising regularly and eating healthful foods, often require just a little nudge – not a lot of effort or willpower. Walk Kansas 2024 is focusing on how simple shifts can help positive habits stick. State leader for Walk Kansas and the K-State Research and Extension family and consumer science specialist for northeast Kansas, Sharolyn Jackson, is aware of the science behind shifting habits. She says there are things we can weave into our day and link to things we already do to make tiny habit shifts that eventually become habits.

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.
