From the Natural Awakenings family to yours, we’re thrilled to wish you a Happy New Year! As 2017 gets underway, and those wellness resolutions start piling up, this month’s issue is packed with inspiration to cultivate healthy habits for a vibrant lifestyle throughout this year––and even more to come.  


Our feature article on “Weight-Loss Saboteurs” addresses the obstacles many people face when trying to manage their weight––whether the goal is to shed holiday pounds or reverse the effects of obesity. If you want to achieve a healthier weight in the New Year, these pointers can show you where to begin and help you stay on-track throughout the process.   


In addition, for anyone who wants to become stronger, more active and physically fit in 2017, “Body Sculpt with Kettlebells” explains how resistance training workouts can increase muscle tone, while burning excess fat. This results from this exercise circuit will keep you motivated and committed to turn your fitness resolutions into sustainable lifestyle habits. 


Wholesome and balanced nutrition is another integral part of wellness, but when choosing a dietary regimen, it’s important to understand which options are actually beneficial and which are just considered trendy. For example, “The Dark Side of Gluten-Free Living” delves into the potential risks of this elimination diet for those who aren’t gluten intolerant. This article can help you make an informed decision about your body’s unique nutritional needs. 


This is just a sampling of all the practical, insightful and valuable information you’ll find in this month’s issue. We hope 2017 is off to a positive start for you, and please feel free to send any comments or questions to [email protected]. We love hearing from our readers!
