Read our October issue!

Take a break this fall with our October Spa and Relaxation issue. Take your time reading articles about healthy ways to bliss out, green spas, making sustainable decisions, dealing with stress in the workplace, and how a simple breath can change your perspective. Read about ways you can enjoy the outdoors without sacrificing comfort in our feature about glamping in Arizona, about the Amazing World of Villafane and his art that will be on display at the pumpkin festival in Carefree this month, and the Master Gardeners’ Annual Fall Festival and Plant Sale.

It’s both ADHD Awareness Month and Breath Cancer Awareness Month, so be sure to read our Q&A on ADHD and learn more about breast cancer from someone who has experienced the process. Be sure to take a look at our new Wild Arizona series by David Schaller, the author of our longrunning Climate Change series that ended last month. Our “Fun Green Facts” article is sure to make your fall a little greener; learn a little about how green spas work and what they take into consideration.

Learn how to appreciate animals ethically, how Arizona backyard beekeepers are rehabilitating Africanized hives, and how to build a culture of health for children! Learn about Ajo, a little-known corner of the Sonoran Desert, and celebrate with the Cox Conserves Hero, Eric Sophiea. The City of Phoenix is also doing its part, recognizing business sustainability with its Green Business Leader program, and partnering with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) to organize a sustainable home design competition.

As always, be sure to check out our “Cool Outrageous Stuff,” delicious recipes and “He’s Green, She’s Green” spa product reviews.
