April letter from the Editor

Thursday, April 03, 2014 HALFSTACK MAGAZINE

Welcome to April readers! It's only a few days in and the weather seems to be cooperating. I don't mind the rain we are getting here in Chicago since the old saying goes "April showers bring May flowers". So, I'm staying optimistic that the warmer days are closer than we even realize. As we inch into spring, I am reminded of this idea of renewal and rebirth. 

The dead looking natural world around us almost instantaneously revitalizes and there is this resurgence of beauty in the world around us. We all emerge from our cocoons and hibernation ready to breathe in the fresh air and become re-energized. With this idea in mind, Sophia (Blog Editorial & Operations Director) and I were inspired to showcase stories of Spring Revival focusing on your mind, body and soul. New years is often a time when people think about taking control of their health through fitness, but to me the Spring is a perfect time to re-focus on this journey. The warmer weather is a great opportunity to get outside and begin to channel your energy into a positive direction. 

Yet, when it comes to overall health we aren't just talking about your body and getting fit; we are also talking about your mind and spirit. It is so important to balance yourself in each area to have overall health. You can exercise all you want, but if you are not managing your stress or inspiring your mind, you are not nearly as healthy as you can be. Therefore, we are bringing you health from a well rounded perspective and hope to inspire your, keep you strong and help you find peace. You can also expect some posts focusing uplifting your spirit, energizing your mind and staying healthy.

We will be focusing on stories such  with Dr. Natalie Strand of the Amazing Race to talk about how to stay healthy this spring as well as a brand focus on Nathan Sports and the importance of proper hydration. We will also showcase a new Book review of 100 Organic Skin Care Recipes and so many more. We hope this month helps you to kickstart your health goals and gets your inspired to continue your journey to finding inner peace. The Dalai Lama once said "We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.” We hope to get you all started in the right direction by showcasing people and products who have overcome and continue to thrive. 

Finally, we have some great events coming up this month and next that I wanted to mention! The first coming up in on April 23, 2014 from 7-9PM is with the Apple Business team at Apple Main Place in Downtown Naperville! Halfstack has teamed up with Paper Crown Gallery (aka PCG Productions) to showcase how we work together and how each of our brands respectively utilize apple products to engage in our business! It's a great opportunity for small businesses and even students to network, be inspired and see how we run our small creative businesses! You can RSVP to attend this FREE event HERE

Finally, falling in line with our April direction - we will be leading up to our first ever Health Expo on May 3, 2014! We have teamed up with the amazing people at Crossfit 630 in Naperville to have an amazing expo with some great keynote speakers like Marla Sarris of Paleoporn.net and a few yet to be announced! You can RSVP HERE and purchase your tickets HERE. We hope to see all of you out and about! As always thank you for your support!! 

Happy spring!
