Natural Awakenings Tampa Florida

Letter From the Publisher

It’s November 2015 on Florida’s west coast and there’s a comfortable chill in the air. It’s thanks we’re giving for near perfect temperatures now and in the months ahead. Tampa Bay rules!
       This month’s magazine offers cutting edge news and views on the natural health front. I’m so encouraged by the apparent growth in this field. Clearly, the focus on wellness and hope for the future strengthen us and our fellow dwellers on this precious planet. It is comforting to know there are life supporting steps we can take to nourish ourselves and the natural world. 
       Each month, Natural Awakenings also highlights certain aspects of the movement toward well being. This month’s focus is “true wealth and beauty”. Judith Fertig’s feature article, “True Wealth: Living a Life We Love is Real Affluence,” really struck home for me. It seems many spend the first part of a career life accumulating things and the latter part paring down and simplifying. This past summer, I took big steps toward simplifying. The process involved taking a good look at things I’ve had for years and deciding if I wanted to keep dusting them off, or not! Turns out, I was able to donate a lot of stuff to Goodwill Industries.
    On another note, take a look at the exciting possibilities Ximena Vengoechea suggests in her “Conducting a Life Audit” (page 26), especially the 100 sticky notes idea.
       As always, open your mind and read on.
