This Month's Issue

Phew, the year 2020, the most testing and threatening many of us will experience, is receding in the rearview mirror. Of course, life is nowhere near back to normal yet — challenges to our safety and security persist — but a new year dawning always provides us with a chance to pause and consider how we wish to chart our path forward. That’s why each year we stack our January magazine with information related to ways we might embrace to improve our well-being and commit to making things better, together.

From five family health trends to track to therapeutic prescriptions and natural remedies for common childhood ailments courtesy of the most venerated healer of all, Mother Nature, we hope you will find new inspiration to focus on healthful new habits, safe ways to get out and about as a family and just keeping the faith that this mess will all be over soon.

Wishing you happiness and wellness in the new year ahead!
