A season for renewal
Can you sense it?
The rays of the sun — when it’s not busy hiding behind the clouds — feel just a little warmer. The days are growing just a little longer. And the trees and other plants that slept through the winter now possess a nearly tangible energy: they, like us, are ready for a new growing season.
Yes, friends, spring is on its way. And what is spring known best as, if not a time for renewal?
During the winter, our well-being and personal growth all too often take a back seat to what seem to be more pressing matters. Not only do we have Wisconsin’s cold, ice and wind to contend with, we each have our own work, social, family and other responsibilities. When juggling these concerns, it’s all too easy to forget the difference between living life and surviving it.
This spring, truly live your life. As you take in the smell of rain showers and the sight of budding flowers, devote time to focus on your own renewal. Laugh more. Learn more. Love more — both others and yourself. Be inspired by the rebirth you see in the world around you.
Nature’s Pathways is here to help you along your journey. We see ourselves as a partner in your quest to live as the best possible version of yourself. In the following pages, our many talented authors provide information designed to help you focus on renewal and healthy living. Struggling with joint and muscle pain? Learn which foods can help (such as cherries, mint and hot peppers) in Dr. Marco Araujo’s article, “Foods that fight pain.” Listening to music and surrounding ourselves with supportive people can relax us, and in Chris Chantelois article, “The art of self-love,” he recognizes their ability to help you love yourself the right way, too. Do you have new goals for the new season? Use Heather LaFond’s article, “Getting your fitness goals back on track” to discover the art of making, keeping and going after your ambitions. Our many other articles will give you useful information on essential oils, family therapy, skin care and more!
So as you enjoy the beginnings of spring, please let the writings of our expert authors guide you through your own renewal, and remember: you’re never alone on your path to well-being.
Yours in health,
Your Nature’s Pathways team
