January marks the beginning of not only a new calendar year but also the opportunity for setting personal goals. Perhaps you’ve resolved to get up to the mountain more this winter (definitely on my list!), exercise more regularly, or volunteer in the community.

Whatever your goals may be, we hope the people, places, recipes and tips in this issue will inspire you to focus on wellness in the new year. The following pages introduce you to the benefits of concierge medicine and barre fitness. Discover some great books on wellness and whip up the a healthy smoothie recipe we’ve featured to get you started!

And while diet and exercise are vital to your physical health, overall wellness includes your mental health too. This month, we at Bend Lifestyle encourage you to live your best life by taking care of yourself both inside and out.

Thanks for reading Bend Lifestyle and Happy New Year!
