Ah, finally. We’re moving into fall. I’m sure I’ve said this before, but October seems to be one of those pivotal months of the year. The weather starts changing, we move into holiday season mode, and it’s just generally a great month for finding events and festivals to keep us occupied.
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.
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.
September is here, and I know I may be jumping the gun a bit in saying this, but so is fall! Though temperatures still feel the same as they did in summer, we’re moving into the wonderful time of year when we may need to relocate our light jackets. Denim, windbreaker, cardigan, whatever you have—dig it out and keep it close for the season to come!
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.
Here we are in August again. The sweltering heat may be getting to some of us at this point (if I’m not in air conditioning or a body of water, I turn into a different person). But fear not—we have plenty of tips inside on how to get through the heat, stay hydrated and even enjoy the rest of the summer with tasty recipes.
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.
