Healthy Beginnings

Editor’s Letter | February 2013

As we all step into February, still clinging to those New Year resolutions, holding fast to our lovely holiday feelings and beginning the new journey into 2013, you might find yourself in a similar place as me: Single.

The month of February is red, pink, glittery and filled with candied hearts. I do have children, so art projects are fun and popular during this time of year. I also LOVE love. So, I guess that works. It’s just that there is so much emphasis on romantic love–the kind that children, friends and family just cannot create. But, I cherish the love I have in my life, no matter if it is romantic or familial…and maybe, it’s time to start feelin’ the love throughout the entire year.

So, with that, you might notice our editorial calendar and covers are not going to necessarily “speak” of the current holiday or latest trends populating the mainstream. This month, we’re focusing on starting your day right, your foundation. The cover says it all.

Look for Allison Prater’s column on prenatal fitness, where you’ll find the best gift you can give your baby: a healthy beginning. Check out Dr. Gerber’s article on starting your day right; a critique of a typical morning routine. Of course, we have the “love” thing covered too in June Milligan’s book review on “Secrets of Happy Couples.”

Enjoy the coming month. Inhale it’s beauty…including the possibility of roses, chocolates and most of all, love.

Pause. Breathe. & Be Well,
