As 2020 gets into full swing, 209 Magazine encourages you to indulge your senses and put an emphasis on living healthy.

There’s no better way to recharge for a new year of opportunities than to take a minute to focus on individual senses. From the sounds of a symphony orchestra to the exquisite taste of locally made olive oils, the 209 has a number of ways to indulge.

The start of a new year often finds us recommitting to healthy living goals. In this issue’s special section on Healthy Living in the 209, you will find stories on using reiki for healing and energy flow, tips for winter skin care, increasing mobility, strength and function through physical therapy, a personal trainer who specializes in helping senior citizens stay fit and dealing with changes caused by aging.

As always, we have featured a number of restaurants, wineries and businesses that we hope you will explore in your travels throughout the 209.

We welcome your comments, calendar events and stories. We hope you will support the businesses and charities that have chosen to partner with us. We appreciate them and look forward to being the most relevant magazine in your home, a place called 209.
