June 2024 Natural Awakenings Milwaukee Magazine

 Summer in Milwaukee is magic. I love when our community comes fully alive: kids play in the park and enjoy summer vacation, folks sit under shaded trees with a good read, families stroll down the block, dogs run and play, and all of us enjoy the fresh air and nourishing energy of summer. Hikers and runners, pickleball players and bikers, kayakers and outdoor yoga attendees soak in the season. Farmers markets, music festivals, art and craft events, and outdoor patios offer ample reason to explore and adventure. With the sun high in the sky and the trees full and green, everything is saturated in more color. Everything feels sweeter.

I hope you find a lovely place to pause and embrace the spirit of the season. Perhaps find a place outdoors to kick your feet up and relax for a moment, open the pages of Natural Awakenings and enjoy. We are excited to share this issue with something to nourish everyone’s mind, body and spirit. And while we feature Men’s Health this month, every issue is for everyone. We are all touched by people of all gender identities, and the divine masculine and feminine exist within each of us.

We hope you find a piece of inspiration within these pages that can bring something to your summer season. Perhaps it’s a great tip about building and maintaining healthy muscle (page 30 of the print magazine), ideas to support emotional well-being (page 24 of the print magazine) or a fresh healthy recipe to try (page 25). School’s out, and parents can find ideas for helping kids have a fruitful summer on page 34 of the print magazine.  With all the running around this summer, CBD can offer dogs relief; pet owners can learn more on page 36. Learn about eight holistic health benefits of acupuncture for mind and body on page 28.

As you, our loyal readers, well know, Natural Awakenings is on a mission to promote healthier living on a healthier planet. We believe in more natural, holistic and preventive approaches to heal and to stay healthy. We believe in seeing health as an interconnection of mind, body, spirit, our community and our planet. We would not exist without our amazing readers and our supportive marketing partners who align with our mission and help heal people in our community every single month.

With deep gratitude, we thank you all. Wishing you a vibrant summer season!
