Healthy Woman - - NEWS - Happy Read­ing!

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.
