Eat right, walk right and talk to yourself right. That’s what Lani Herner says it takes to be healthy.
As an integrative health counselor and founder of Your Best Health Ever, she acknowledges it’s a simple approach, and it sounds almost parochial when compared to the many extreme diets (and extreme attitudes) that people gravitate toward in their unending quest to lose weight. Herner knows that "extreme" sells programs, memberships, TV ratings and books, but it’s not sustainable.
"I don’t believe in diets," she says, "because diets don’t work. I talk about a shift in thinking that you can live with, each day of your life." To read more about her sensible approach, which addresses all aspects of a person’s life, turn to our feature story on page 46. It may be just what you need as we wind down from a month known for both making — and breaking — resolutions.
Of course, it wouldn’t be February if I didn’t mention what it’s known for: Valentine’s Day. Regardless of your age, you probably have some feelings on the subjects of passion and love. This issue of Nature’s Pathways includes articles on great later-in-life sex and how to fuel the flames of passion for yourself, as just two examples around that theme. We’ve also got lots of great information on heart health, nutrition, spirituality and so much more.
In fact, we had so much great material for this issue we had to add more pages. To date this is our largest issue ever, and not something we take lightly. We have nothing but appreciation for our readers and advertisers for the support and loyalty you’ve shown us. It’s so gratifying to get so much positive feedback. If you’re so inclined, please friend us on Facebook (Nature’s Pathways Magazine) and let us know what you think. I’d also encourage you to visit our web site, www.naturespathwayswi.com. We’re constantly uploading content so there’s always something new to learn, and it’s easy to meet other health-minded folks.
Until next month!
