ur special issue focusing on Men’s Wellness offers a wealth of helpful suggestions for both men, and the women who love them. Dr. Mehmet Oz leads off with his favorite natural wellness advice in “What Works: Dr. Oz’ 25 Greatest Men’s Health Tips.” Why not challenge yourself to try a few and see what happens?

turn to outdoor activities that will have me enjoying the fresh air and soaking up some much needed vitamin D. Christine Showler’s article, “Kayaking for Health” is sure to inspire more of us to jump into the experience with both feet. Be sure to check out Hudson County’s local kayaking directory on page 19. A kayak outing could launch a surprise float down the Hudson River with your favorite guy followed by a Father’s Day picnic. Sshhh… that’s what I’m planning for my husband. Maybe we’ll see you there.

Other family adventures could include bike riding, rollerblading or even a local 5K charity event. Why not start a new Father’s Day tradition? Start by preparing a healthy breakfast with a twist, such as a fruit smoothie with flax seed oil, steel cut oats with cholesterol-lowering cinnamon, or a veggie omelet made with egg whites. Then take off for fun. Show your love by sharing the gift of health.

As always, we thank you for choosing to include Natural Awakenings of Hudson County as part of your day.
