We’re pleased to announce that this month, Natural Awakenings is celebrating 25 years of publishing. Gracing our cover, Sharon Bruckman, our illustrious leader and CEO, reminds us that the real “natural awakening” is about each of us waking up to who we truly are and the kind of world we can create together. Be sure to check out our story, “Silver Thread and Golden Opportunities, 25 Years of Natural Awakenings,” and find out what drives her and our nationwide family of independent publishers to new heights of inspiration and action.
Our motto remains close to our heart: “Healthy Living, Healthy Planet.” To empower individuals to live a healthier lifestyle on a sustainable planet, we educate communities about the latest developments in natural health and sustainability, connect readers with local wellness resources and events and inspire them to lead more balanced lives.
The future is now; today is the time; and we welcome you to a new year by showcasing more fresh ideas to inspire and motivate us all toward a more healthful, sustainable and rewarding 2019. This is the perfect time to take stock of where we are, where we have been and where we want to be. How are you going to get started?
In these early moments of the new year, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and take some time to review and contemplate the year we have just completed. We all have the opportunity to continue on as we have or start anew as a little older and slightly wiser version of ourselves building relationships with an improved set of tools.
It is important to focus on what really makes us happy, and good health is directly related to leading a more conscious, simple and happy life. This year, take more naps, enjoy long baths and get a massage, or simply find somewhere to sit for a few minutes in silence to listen to your own deep breaths and rhythm of your body.
We love publishing this free magazine for you, and we intend to disseminate even more beneﬁcial information and resources to empower you and improve the health of yourself, your family and your friends in the new year to come!
Here’s to your health and wellness! May we live well, laugh often and truly enjoy life.
Trina and John
