“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
This is a quote by Benjamin Franklin that couldn’t ring truer for us. While working on this month’s issue, we were excited to receive so much more feedback from our readers; loyal and new ones too! It gives us that much-needed energy boost, knowing that we are reaching out to the women we really love to inspire and entertain with every article we put up. You were excited about the just concluded #Marinifiedwithhealthywoman promotion, and we are pleased to announce the lucky winners this month. We insist that you follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for daily gems and possibly even more goodies.
We also caught wind of the incorrect belief that as a magazine, Healthy Woman supports the singularly misleading opinion that the only marker for beauty is a specific body type, thinness and the associated quick-fixes that go with these beliefs. We would like to state, with utmost emphasis that this is an unfortunate and inaccurate allegation that we need to refute.
Our aim has and will always remain this: walking side by side with the modern woman on her evolving journey towards health, fitness and all round wellbeing. As a publication, we present varied views from home and across the world surrounding these aforementioned topics. We know that every individual has their own marker for wellness and thus we seek, and bring forth information to our readers, with the belief that they will proceed to make informed decisions on what works best for them. Just this year alone, our cover has featured a woman who started a business to support bustier girls, a working lawyer who worked out and lost so much weight in her house, a respected singer who knows the journey to fitness is paved with a lot of sweat, a banker who weightlifts, and this month, a young woman who mastered Crossfit in just two years and is training to become an Olympic weightlifter.
The only standard of beauty we subscribe to is the one that works for YOU, and the one that means you are healthy, free of disease and injury, informed, happy and charged up for greatness.
We hope to keep interacting with you, dear reader, even as we keep growing. Keep talking to us, keep socialising online. We do hope this month’s issue will not fail to entertain, inspire, motivate and challenge you to be the best version of yourself.
