Santa Barbara YMCA Sponsoring Free Health and Wellness Event

According to a national survey, 93 percent of Americans report attempting to make everyday choices to be healthy and live well, but 47 percent feel like they’re struggling to do a good job.

On Saturday, to kick-off America On the Move Week with the YMCA, the Santa Barbara Family YMCA will be hosting a free wellness event, and the community is invited to help jump-start wellness plans.

Individuals who are looking for personalized wellness advice can click here for the Web site, then click on the Stanford Health and Lifestyle Assessment. After taking the assessment, print a summary report and bring it to the YMCA to talk with health and wellness staff on how to improve overall health and wellness.

Saturday’s wellness event activities will include a beach walk from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. — meet at the Three Dolphin Water Fountain by StearnsWharf and State Street — and the Stanford Health and Lifestyle Assessment Results from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. — meet with wellness staff at the Santa Barbara Family YMCA, 36 Hitchcock Way. Click here to fill out the survey.

For more information, call Bente Maike at 805.687.7720, ext. 254.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
