SEASON’S GREETINGS from all of us at Natural Awakenings Tampa Bay, and welcome one and all. This issue is filled with an eye-opening collection of news and views from the front lines of today’s natural and nutritional health movement.

The month of December offers many opportunities to celebrate life, each in our own way. Traditional celebrations cover Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and even more. Fun events and gatherings stir thoughts of love and sharing. On the horizon, December 31 signals the passing of 2018 and the arrival of a new year ripe with possibility. (Let’s make the most of it.)

I’m happy to spend some quality time with cherished family in Wisconsin this month. My Grandpa Harrop turns 102 next April. His wonderfully positive attitude about life is infectious. It’s all good.

This month’s Eco Tip (page 24), a "Guide to Sustainable Merry-Making", offers timely insight on how to develop "eco-conscious" approaches in the holiday frame of mind. It’s all in the interest of reducing our impact on the planet; a reminder that every little bit helps.

Our feature article this month, by Linda Sechrist, is an encouraging read. Entitled "A Global Wake-Up Call" (page 28), the article reinforces my confidence in the positive change encouraged by holistic, natural health movements here and planetary-wise.

Enjoy yourself this holiday season.

As always, open your mind and heart, and read on.
