Feel Good, Live Simply, Laugh More

For several years, this tagline appeared on the cover of Natural Awakenings magazines, a reminder of how our readers aspire to realize a naturally healthy and satisfying life. Although the words have been removed from our redesigned cover to yield room for our new look, they continue to sustain the spirit of all we do.

This spirit is evident in the local practitioners, service providers, retailers, coaches and constituents we meet every day, who generously share their expertise. It permeates our loyal and growing readership, which daily benefits from adopting enhanced habits of the heart and life. It guides our content.

This month’s feature article by Lisa Marshall, “Dial Down Stress,” provides helpful insights and how-to-tips for keeping our cool even in tough times. Our local feature by Allie McFee, “Common Forms of Stress and Local Natural Relief,” shines a light on additional resources and techniques close to home. It feels good knowing how we can chill out virtually any time we choose.

We are ever humbled by the abundance of quality connections, personal growth and simple practices for well-being that result through the efforts of our expanding natural living circle. Together we are making a positive difference in the world, starting in each local community touched by our readers, and progress beckons in the new year.

We invite you to join us in celebrating the magazine’s fresh, bold redesign introduced this month for 2018 and beyond. It’s all intended to serve you even better, from the new logo, streamlined layout and larger graphics to the overall crisper look and feel. It represents the commitment of our publishing family to provide up-todate content in a reader-friendly context.

Our goal is to bring you a vibrant and engaging reading experience. We welcome your comments and, as always, your ideas and tips to aid us in covering what’s going on around town.

We’re all in this together, grateful to our advertisers, contributors, business distribution points and every reader for making this magazine possible each month. Your support and inspiration are helping each of us along our path to a healthier body, mind and spirit.

A better world is possible in 2018 and beyond, and I understand that the changes I desire must start within me first, especially if they are doing and feeling good, living simply and laughing more.

To new beginnings,

Teona Signature

We have so much to celebrate each month in our vibrant city, and September tends to enhance it all with Indy’s mix of surprisingly warm Indian Summer days and crisper nights. In this edition, we highlight activities and events to get us out, get moving and do some good along the way.

August is cherished by most of us from an early age as the last chance for summer vacations before the new school year starts. Excited anticipation wrestles with a bittersweet farewell to summer’s goodness.

This month we focus on wholesome nutrition, highlighting farmers rooted in health plus antiinflammatory diets filled with good-for-you foods. Most Natural Awakening readers are concerned with where our food comes from, how it’s grown and feeling it’s a healthy addition to our diet.

Letter from Publisher

I’m from the Midwest, born and raised in Michigan before moving to Indianapolis in my 20s. I love experiencing the four seasons (sometimes all in one day), all kinds of sports, backyard picnics, yards for kids to play in and the strong sense of community here. The people are real, friendships can last a lifetime and neighbors tend to know and help one another.
