September 2017

I selfishly love writing in this portion of the magazine. It pushes me to step back and focus on a particular month and what it means to me. When I do, my thoughts vary and range from my childhood memories to professional experience and even future aspirations. Sometimes I’m surprised by what my subconscious remembers and other instances I know exactly what I’ll reflect on and reminisce about.

September is one of those months. I — along with many others — can’t help but solely think of it as its own season: back to school.

For adults, this time typically either makes you cringe in remembrance (or in anticipation) or smile in the name of nostalgia. For me it’s the latter, but in any case, it’s a phenomenon that has seemingly gotten larger in recent years. It marks a time of the year that people are paying attention to, whether it’s the shift in the seasons, physical and emotional health, or the start of favorite fall sports.

Appropriately, this issue of Nature’s Pathways is packed with information for parents, students, teachers and everyone in between. Check out our Healthy Concepts and Healthy Kids columns this month to answer questions about nutrition, exercise and keeping your family healthy and happy this school year.

Cheers to another beginning!

“I am not a body, I am free. For I am as God created me.” How audacious is this statement to our human minds? It’s one thing to affirm a belief; it’s altogether different to live it doubt free. Actually, as a Spanish philosopher wrote many years ago, “the battle…
