Natural Awakenings New Haven & Middlesex Counties

New Year, New Resolutions, New You, New Natural Awakenings!

Are you writing down your new year resolutions and setting up what you want to manifest? Or are you refraining from doing it yet? Did you look back at past years and realize that you started out with good intentions…but they took a backseat because of what you need to do to take care of your family and home, make a living, and perform other “adulting” duties? Did you fall by the proverbial wayside? As we begin 2024, prioritize yourself again. In order to manifest, you need to envision what it is you desire. Maybe organize a vision board gathering with friends with a meditation, snacks, tea, laughter, and lots of cutting and pasting to envision your 2024 dreams. If you visualize growing your own holistic-minded business, check out my collaborative article with local holistic networking leaders for best practices, tips and more.

Speaking of envisioning…I am excited and grateful to announce we are expanding to include four more Connecticut counties starting this spring: Hartford, Tolland, Windham and New London Counties! Please reach out early to [email protected] for advertising incentives to be part of our inaugural April issue.

This past year for me has been one of new journeys transitioning from the role of “only” editor and writer to publisher, magazine owner, advertising collaborator and more for Natural Awakenings’ New Haven and Middlesex Counties edition. It has been a challenging, fulfilling journey offering readers great content and information on local companies that can help them along their paths of self-discovery and health. I am grateful to partnering organizations, including Holistic Community Professionals, Tribe TLC, Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce and Waterbury Regional Chamber of Commerce, among others.

As Natural Awakenings begins celebrating its 30th anniversary this month, we honor founder Sharon Bruckman on her inspiration and successes since launching the original Natural Awakenings in Florida in 1994. Check out other articles this month on aging gracefully with ways to live well and longer with more fulfillment. We delve into foods that support thyroid health, preventing falls, intuitive eating, greening our roofs, the difference kids are making using social media and more.
