Happy New Year! For us, welcoming 2017 brings a sense of renewal, as we reflect on the year that’s now behind us and look forward with new vigor to the exciting challenges ahead.

Now that the holiday madness is over, we are recommitting to our physical and spiritual health, and we’ve got plenty of tips to help you do the same. We’re looking forward to participating in the Redding Health Expo on Jan. 7, and many of the stories in this issue aim to show all of us how to adopt (or re-adopt!) healthy habits. Remember, you don’t need to completely overhaul your lifestyle to make a positive difference - small changes can add up to big rewards. We’ll show you how to detox from sugar overload, build wellness into your workday, use technology to keep on top of your health records and much more.

You’ll be inspired by Heather Banos, who traded unhealthy addictions for a life fueled by running, optimism and strength. We’ll also introduce you to middle schoolers who are hip-hopping their way to fitness, and having plenty of fun in the process - finding their beat not only on the dance floor, but in life, thanks to a very special teacher.

If you’ve resolved to help make our world a better place, you’ll love learning more about J.T. Shoults, who saw an opportunity at his granddaughter’s school that he has turned into an after-school gardening program that teaches nutrition, science, math, teamwork and more.

And if the wet weather has your kids a little stir crazy, we’ve got some unique ideas for engaging their imaginations even when it’s cold and rainy.

We hope you are diving into 2017 with a rejuvenated mind, body and soul. Enjoy!
