Happy New Year, everyone! I hope your holiday season was filled with festive cheer and, as you enter 2016, may you embrace its opportunities for positive change and self-improvement. As I look ahead to the promise of new beginnings, I—just like many of you—feel motivated to re-commit to my nutrition and fitness goals after all that holiday feasting! 


Now is the prime time to start pursuing a healthier lifestyle that promotes physical, mental and emotional well-being. This month’s article on “Reasons to Try Acupuncture” explains how this ancient healing modality can help alleviate aches and pains, allergies, digestive issues, stress or anxiety, and other concerns that might be preventing you from experiencing vitality this year. In addition, if regular exercise is on your resolution list, be sure to read “Dancing for the Body, Mind and Spirit” for suggestions on making fitness both enjoyable and effective. 


Since we’re also heading into cold and flu season, check out our feature on “Healthy Seasonal Soups” for recipe inspirations that will provide immune-boosting nutrients and keep you cozy during these winter months—or, as “wintry” as it gets here in Florida! Finally, let’s not forget about our furry friends. Make sure they also stay healthy throughout 2016 with advice from our “Benefits of Using a Holistic Vet” article.    


As always, please feel free to email any comments or suggestions to [email protected]. And, I hope you’ll find this issue both insightful and informative as you embrace all the possibilities of this exciting New Year!
