By now, the New Year’s resolutions to exercise, eat healthy and live stress-free have either become part of the day-to-day regimen or they’ve been dismissed.
Either way, it’s never too late to make a healthy promise to yourself to eat more fruits and vegetables, take an afternoon walk and unwind at the end of the day with a good book and a glass of wine. In fact, it turns out one glass of wine a day is not only good for you, but it doesn’t have to be red wine for health benefits. Reporter Audrey Thomasson tells us the good news about white as well.
Reporter Tom Chillemi finds another, more unusual way to rewind, by car racing at Daytona. It’s his way of enjoying midlife and spreading his wings before it’s too late to fly. He urges everyone do the same.
In this issue, which has a little something for everyone, we meet the local mother and daughter who influenced lawmakers to pass a medical marijuana bill. We also discuss why it’s important to open up and say aahh at the dentist. Your doc isn’t just looking for cavities anymore.
We also have a purrrfect story for the cat lover. Meet Alvin Hill and his therapy cats.
Along with our feature stories, this issue includes a directory of medical and healthcare providers and a comprehensive calendar of health and wellness related events in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula.
Resolve to make this year one of peace, good health and relaxation.
