Wellness is more than just our physical health – it also includes emotional, financial, social, spiritual, environmental, intellectual, creative, and even career wellness. Join Ohio State University Extension for the “Spring into Wellness” 6-week email wellness challenge to learn more about these and other wellness topics.

The email challenge connects participants with tips, research, and resources to help you blend the dimensions of wellness to be a healthier you. If you live or work in Lucas County, sign up by going to and answer a few short questions to get registered.

During the week of March 28 all registered participants will receive a pre-challenge message. Participants will then receive twice-weekly emails from April 4 to May 15. Participants will have access to optional resources available including the Ohio State University Extension Live Healthy Live Well Blog, a free 4-part wellness webinar series, and a personal Bingo card. Pre-and post-challenge online surveys will be used to track participant progress and comments
