Put the focus on YOU in 2014!
Welcome to the start of a new year that I hope is full of health, happiness and prosperity for each of you.
While it would be nice if my wish could make it so, the fact is that we truly need to put in the effort to get ourselves to this idyllic place in life. Our increasingly busy lives make it easy for us to let “ourselves” fall further and further down our priority lists. Why do we let this happen when taking care of ourselves is essential to our health and well-being?
Considering it’s the season of resolutions, this is the perfect time to put more focus on yourself! If you’ve already made efforts in this area, keep them going. If you’ve not yet been able to devote the resources to yourself, start with small steps so you can avoid being overwhelmed by the commitment. Remember, you have a lifetime ahead to ramp up your efforts! Start with the basics:
Not too overwhelming, right? So, why not let 2014 be the year of YOU? You’re worth it!
This month’s issue is once again full of thoughtful articles that are meant to open our minds to all of the services, products and resources available to us as we do our best to live healthy lives. Don Neviaser shares some tips on how to improve other people’s perceptions of you by improving your feelings about yourself. And speaking of perception, Brittany Miller explains how eating certain foods can actually improve your appearance. Laura Ash discusses traditional holistic practices of a nomadic people in Africa and the importance of preserving such traditions, wherever you are. And, of course, there are many more, so enjoy!
Best wishes to all of you as you begin this new year with a renewed commitment to healthy living!
In health and happiness,
