Recovery leads to mindfulness

Donna Krug has been a Barton County Extension Agent, specializing in Family and Consumer Science for nearly 29 years. Through her position, she has provided countless hours of instruction to adults in the communities of Barton County covering topics ranging from preparing healthy foods to modifying exercises to maintain strength and flexibility while aging. She has authored Kansas State University Fact Sheets used by educators all over Kansas and across the country. Healthy living is a passion and interest she shares with her husband John, a retired chiropractor. Together, they’ve embraced a whole foods diet, become avid bicyclists, and most recently began practicing mindful meditation. A year ago, following a serious bicycling accident while on vacation, Donna, with the support of John, found herself calling upon all three of these interests as she set out on the long road to recovery.
