June 2013

June has arrived! As we embrace the official start of summer here in Wisconsin, I hope all of you are able to find inspiration in this month’s natural beauty.

This really is a great season to explore our wonderful forests, parks, public lands and waters, so make an attempt to get outside and celebrate National Great Outdoors Month! This June observance is sponsored by The American Recreation Coalition, which is dedicated to the protection and enhancement of everyone’s right to health and happiness through recreation. Parents can make these outings teachable moments by broaching related issues such as volunteerism, health and outdoor ethics.

Speaking of family time, June is also the month we formally honor our fathers. It’s amazing the impact that involved dads and granddads have on the well-being of children (… and the example that their healthy choices can make!). Fathers, ensure your commitment can continue by taking the time to care for yourself and go to your chosen health practitioners for preventative care. There is much support available!

As usual, our authors have some great articles to help us on our journeys to health. Brian Wussow educates us on the epidemic of brain stress and what we can do to better manage in today’s chaotic world. Leia McCumber shares the importance of including both resistance and cardiovascular training in our exercise regimens. Barry Kerr and Kristine Gay encourage us to create inner peace and contentment by taking a “getaway”! And, of course, there are many more, so enjoy!

Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads out there! Make some time to enjoy the great outdoors with your loved ones.

In health and happiness,
Jackie

Sometimes I wonder … Why do we treat our cars better than we treat ourselves? For instance: We change the oil in our vehicles (or we are suppose to) every 3 months/3,000 miles; we get our brakes and shocks done when needed; and we get a tune-up for our vehicles…
