January marks the beginning of not only a new calendar year but also the opportunity for setting personal goals. Perhaps you’ve resolved to exercise more regularly, take up a new hobby or volunteer at the local animal shelter.

Whatever your goals may be, we hope the people, places, recipes and tips and tricks in this issue will inspire you to focus on wellness in the new year.

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

We asked local experts for their advice on financial fitness and for some of their favorite healthy recipes. Plus, we take a look at a new facility opening in Parker this month that may just help you get in the “swing” of things this year. We also take you on a refreshing journey to one of our favorite vacation destinations for a rejuvenating getaway that will help you reset and take on 2019 refreshed and renewed.

Happy New Year, Parker! We’ll see you around town.
