A bittersweet new adventure

You might not realize it, but you — yes, you — have had an incredible impact on my life.

In my role as Nature’s Pathways Editorial Director, I am often touched by the stories readers like you share about how very life-changing fitness, complementary and alternative health practices, mindfulness, and sustainable living can be. Hearing what a difference Nature’s Pathways has made in someone’s life is both inspiring and humbling. Being part of this community has brought me incredible joy.

But just as every story no matter how sweet must come to an end, my chapter at Nature’s Pathways has drawn to a close. It is with a heavy heart today that I say farewell. I have learned and accomplished so much in my time with this magazine, but I know in my soul that it is time for someone new to take the reins and provide fresh leadership to this very important cause.

I’m unbelievably excited to see what the future holds for Nature’s Pathways and its new managing editor: Grace Olson. Grace is not only an extremely talented editor and forward-thinking leader, she is my valued friend, and I know she will work every day to make Nature’s Pathways everything it can and should be.

Life seldom works out as we plan. But the unexpected can be just as sweet. And while I’ll miss all of you, I know our paths will cross again. Thank you and farewell — for now.

Ahh, spring. There’s just something about those first few warm days of the year that make me itch to throw open the windows, organize my j unk drawer, hang clothes out on the line and scrub every surface in my house. Yet despite the hours I spend each year making…
Have you ever met a person who thrives on being around people and never seems happy unless she or he is socializing? A person who receives energy from people is considered an extrovert. An extrovert will thoroughly enjoy attending a party and will leave filled with a mixture of energy…
According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR), spring is the worst time of year for wildfires. While local ordinances and state regulations govern outdoor burning, open burning, burn barrels and fire pits are common throughout northeast Wisconsin. Although the WDNR strongly discourages individual property owners from outdoor burning,…
Spring is here! The trees are budding, the grass is starting to green up, the birds are singing and it won’t be long before we see the first blooms of daffodils and tulips. For many this is a time of rejuvenation and return to outdoor activity. Unless you are one…
Yoga nidra is often referred to as “yogic sleep.” Think of it as having the body be asleep, but the brain in an active state of consciousness. Nidra is different from meditation in that during meditation, you do not leave the waking state of consciousness into a state of dreaming.…
We reference our feet in curious and sometimes humorous ways. Phrases such as, “To set one’s foot down,” “under foot,” “foot the bill,” “off its feet,” “to put one’s foot into it,” enter our conversations often. However, the health of our feet may not enter our consciousness until something happens.…
If someone would have told me that once I reached my 30s I would be able to execute a pull up, flip over in the air, or hold multiple variations of planks, I probably would have thought they were crazy. The best part is I can do all of those…
We have all experienced the uncomfortable pains of overeating in our lives, but could what you eat really be the culprit of arthritis, muscle pain, fibromyalgia, digestive and skin disorders as well? Yes, in fact, it can be to blame. Scientists are making a strong link between our food choices…
Hazardous household materials are usually found in our garages and basements, and we often overlook our craft rooms, workshops and under the kitchen sink. These products are usually labeled with words such as “caution,” “warning,” “danger,” “poison,” “flammable,” “combustible” or “corrosive.” These hazardous materials can threaten the quality of our…
We are all exposed to man-made chemicals. Whether it is in our drinking water, shampoos, soaps, cleaners, or in many of the lawn care pesticide/weed killer products, and even directly in our food supply, you can be very certain that just about any household “goop” will contain estrogens that we…
