Happy New Year!

I love this time of year. January is when we hit the reset button, set our New Year’s resolutions and focus on the good that is to come in 2019. I welcome you to spend some time targeting your goals, finding ways to improve, and most of all, to practice positive thinking!

There is so much to be said about mindset; if you put your mind to something, you can accomplish just about anything. It is the law of attraction: what you put out is what you get back. With that in mind, I encourage everyone to be your best self and stay positive with your thoughts and actions this year. I always make it a point to live by the Golden Rule: treating others as one’s self would wish to be treated. This really is a healthy way to live, and the best part of all is that it feels good!

As we begin a new year, health and wellness are always a focus. This is, of course, the theme for the January issue at Paradise Valley Lifestyle. In this issue, you will find inspiring stories on ways to incorporate healthier eating habits, how to implement steady and realistic fitness routines and how to be better prepared for the future with mindful financial choices. We have also included feel-good stories focused on local nonprofits and so much more.

As residents of Paradise Valley, you are well aware that January is the start of so much activity around the valley of the sun. We are officially in “high season,” which means there are many fun things to do in the coming months. Moving into the full swing of all the Valley has to offer, remember to enjoy the ride!

Be grateful, be kind and live well,

Tammy Fellows
