Letter from Publisher
Every April issue, I am proud of our special Earth-sensitive calendar of events. In Light of what is unfolding on the outer screen of life, some organizers, thinking out of the box, are moving to virtual events and holding smaller venues. It is suggested that before attending any event found in this month’s calendars, you call for information/confirmation before going.
With growing awareness of what this new virus is and how to combat it, we are all making hard but necessary changes in routines and scheduling. But the passion to make healthy change remains. These rapidly moving times require flexibility.
Now, more than ever, stay informed, take manageable precautions and stay calm. Advertisers in this magazine offer immune boosting with nutritional IVs and other health-enhancing services and ideas. Some yoga studios hereabouts will be offering virtual yoga for everyone. Natural Awakenings Tampa Bay and its holistic news coverage is always available, for free, in your inbox. Simply sign up at NATampa.com.
I chose the striking butterfly image on this month’s cover because this beautiful creature calms me and reflects what this magazine is all about. Writer April Thompson offers fun, healthy ways to lighten up in "Flower Power: Botanical Libations Pack Healthy Punch” (page 32). In “Moving Through Chronic Pain”, writer Julie Petersburg explains how exercise can heal what hurts (page 36).
And there’s so much more.
Remember to be kind to one another, including yourself. Check on your neighbors and make sure they are doing well. We are all in this together.
As always, with an open mind and heart, read on.
