Best Health - - LETTERS - TAMMY DAY OLIVIA LECH CASSIDY COUTTS JANE OUIMET OSSIE BISPO

I ap­pre­ci­ated the in­for­ma­tion in the in­ter­view with Sara Ce­lik, “Make This Your Health­i­est Year Ever.” Healthy liv­ing is a mul­ti­fac­eted prac­tice that each of us needs to cus­tom­ize. We are more than just phys­i­cal bod­ies — our emo­tional and spir­i­tual as­pects must be con­sid­ered. I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced ad­verse hor­monal symp­toms with menopause, and the added bur­den of chronic stress. Af­ter nearly six years of ill health, I’m fi­nally learn­ing to dis­con­nect from my stres­sors and my body has ben­e­fited. I en­joyed the “DIY Detox” ar­ti­cle in the Dec/Jan is­sue — it made me re­flect on my tech­nol­ogy use, and I plan to im­ple­ment the strate­gies in­cluded to elim­i­nate un­nec­es­sary so­cial me­dia stress. “Do Noth­ing” is a very pow­er­ful step that is of­ten over­looked, and I ap­pre­ci­ate it be­ing em­pha­sized. Best Health is one of the top-tier Cana­dian health mag­a­zines, and I feel em­pow­ered af­ter read­ing from cover to cover. In Best Health’s Dec/Jan is­sue, I loved the fo­cus on mak­ing small life changes and set­ting achiev­able goals to im­prove well-be­ing rather than fo­cus­ing on large-scale res­o­lu­tions for the new year. As a univer­sity stu­dent, I love dis­cov­er­ing ad­vice and ideas for how I can be­come more present and in­ten­tional in my life. Thanks Best Health for your con­sis­tent in­spi­ra­tion. I re­ally en­joyed “The Change Maker” ar­ti­cle about Bar­bara Cartwright. That was such an amaz­ing story. I loved the whole theme of ex­plor­ing links be­tween hu­man and an­i­mal vi­o­lence. It was so en­light­en­ing, and it gave me hope for an­i­mals out there. I felt em­pow­ered af­ter read­ing this ar­ti­cle. The ar­ti­cle “Guilty Party” was pro­found for me. I find my­self emo­tion­ally ex­hausted dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son, likely self-im­posed, try­ing to be all things to ev­ery­one. I am not nec­es­sar­ily true to my­self and al­ways put my­self last, un­for­tu­nately. I found this ar­ti­cle not only use­ful, but life-chang­ing. It al­lowed me to dis­cuss the guilt and stress of the sea­son with my loved ones.
