Not only does July mean that summer is well underway for Floridians, but it’s also the month of celebrating independence. Typically, we recognize the importance of our autonomy on the Fourth of July with fireworks, hot dogs and picnic salads. What better way to enjoy summer?
Once September makes an appearance, it has a way of making us feel as though fall has arrived. The temperatures may still be balmy, but the promise of the coziest time of year can’t be beaten. And although most of us aren’t quite ready for pumpkin spice-drenched treats, the end of summer is joyous enough to celebrate.
With springtime comes an urge to reinvent ourselves. Most of us feel this at the beginning of January and take action to change our lifestyles for the better. Then come spring, we need another push to keep up with the positive changes we’ve implemented (or given up).  Spring is an opportunity for rebirth in every sense.
Each February is coated in heart-shaped everything. From sweaters to chocolates and everything in between, this month is defined by those colorful little doodles. However, this month isn’t just about the cartoon version of what beats in our chests—it's also American Heart Month. With that comes increased awareness of what you can do to keep your ticker in tip-top shape.
Here we are again at the edge, looking out at the potential 2022 presents. Have you decided what you’d like to accomplish this year? With each January comes a renewed focus on personal health, whether it be physical or emotional health or just general well-being. The onset of a new year is a great time to begin new daily practices that can help nourish you from the inside out.
This month holds two exciting recognized holidays: Senior Citizen’s Day and National Honey Bee Awareness Day. And although you wouldn’t think these two have anything in common, you may be surprised by the amount of good that locally sourced honey can have on a senior body.  
And just like that, 2021 is nearly over. Some of us may be rejoicing, and others may just be in awe that another year has flown by. However, December is one of my favorite months regardless of its year-ending significance.

As with almost every Letter from the Editor that I write, there are celebrations to be had this month. We are currently in the midst of summer and nearly the mid to late end of the season. With that comes balmy temperatures and different occasions and holidays. Of course, there is the Fourth of July, which is always a fun time and a great excuse to stay up late in celebration. However, July also includes Parents’ Day on the 23rd, a little-known and celebrated holiday.
Each year, July lazily rolls into August and brings about a blazing end to the summer season. No matter how you might try, this month is, without fail, the warmest out of the year. With air almost too heavy to breathe and an unrelenting sun hanging high overhead, it’s easy to shut yourself inside and hide from the heat.
