I love getting magazines in the mail. To me, there's nothing more relaxing than snuggling up on the couch with a good book or magazine and a cup of tea and perusing each beautifully designed page—sounds like a true graphic designer, eh?
I've subscribed to a lot of great beautifully designed magazines over the years, but eye candy just doesn't get me excited anymore. I long for information that I can use and I love learning something new or trying new things. Being in the media biz, I know that there are a lot of magazines on the newsstand relating to health and wellness and it can be challenging to decide which ones are best for a natural living lifestyle, but I do have a favorite.
Whole Living (formerly body+soul)
Whole Living is a Martha Stewart Publication that caters to an audience who want to make good, healthy decisions for the whole body. I can honestly say that this magazine has never disappointed me. Every issue I learn something I didn't know and get excited about trying at least one, if not all, of the recipes featured. Now, I've found that there are some things, nutritionally, that I do not agree with, but overall I really do think this magazine has a lot to offer.
So, if you're looking to subscribe to a magazine that may be helpful on your natural health journey and that will provide some good reading during the cold winter months ahead, Whole Living is a good option.
Knowing what I know now about nutrition and natural beauty products, I still do lots of research on products featured in any magazine. Advertising is advertising. Companies pay big money to get a large colorful ad in front of you trying to entice you to buy their product. The same goes for information. I still come across information and articles that I have a different opinion on. Always, always read labels and don't be afraid to do some extra research. If you have questions about a specific product or ingredient, ask your nutritionist about it.
