This month is all about women. We know them, we are them, we love them. With Mother’s Day upon us, it is a great time to shine a light on all the women in our lives who make so much possible.
In our feature article “Resilient Mothering”, we are paying tribute to the strength of women, with particular attention to the last couple of years. We were all faced with unique challenges with the beginning of the pandemic and huge shifts to our daily lives. Mothers, especially, took on additional duties as children were suddenly home every day. Read more about the ways women have adapted, dealt with stress and learned new ways to be thankful, on page 22.
Along these same lines, in “Last in Line”, Susan Ahlstrom contemplates why women don’t take better care of themselves. How can we make sure to leave time and space for our own needs, including “me time”? Maybe one way could be creating a soothing morning ritual, to start your day in a healthy and energetic way. Learn more on page 16.
Do you always forget to drink enough water? Take a sip now! In “Staying Hydrated”, on page 34, get the simple truth about optimal hydration, tips for the best fluids and foods to help hydrate—and learn how your daily coffee habit affects your hydration.
I hope you take some time to get out and about with your loved ones to enjoy the spring weather and enjoy the natural beauty around.
Join me in raising a glass of water (or coffee or wine) to all the women in our lives!
