Natural Awakenings Tampa Florida

Letter From the Publisher

The arrival of the “New Year” heightens my awareness of the rapid passage of time. I welcome January’s arrival, with visions of new beginnings, futures full of possibility. Who knows what wonders might lay ahead? 
    Each year at this time thoughts of the “new year resolution” tradition creep in. Time to reconsider our most cherished resolutions, the victories and wisdom we’ve gained along the way. 2017 is new territory; time to savor; to overcome; time to nurture body, mind and spirit. Life is good in Tampa Bay.
    For those ready to commit to improved dietary habits, writer Lisa Marshall’s feature article on page 30 is full of sound advice. In “Weight-Loss Saboteurs,” Lisa lays out the whys and wherefores of healthy dietary choices. Whether for weight management or simply to improve natural health, this is a good read. 
    A central message of the natural health movement is self-care through natural therapies. Over time, access to complementary health approaches is increasing. The search for affordable alternatives to traditional health insurance can be a challenge. In our Healing Ways department this month, Natural Awakenings Gulf Coast Alabama/Mississippi Publisher Meredith Montgomery offers wise words on “Affordable Complementary Care,” uncovering innovative ways to access, afford and benefit natural health goals.
    As always, open your mind and read on.
