A healthier 2016 starts here. 1

Happy New Year from the team at West Chester & Liberty Lifestyle! We’re thrilled to be your community magazine. Thank you for welcoming us into your home. We hope to bring you uplifting news every month of the new year.

It is tradition to start each new year with resolutions and a renewed focus on healthy living. As we kick off 2016, we explore a few of the local businesses that can help us on our journey to a healthier lifestyle. Inside this issue we have tips on how to be healthier on the inside and out from Gracetree Yoga & Growth Studio and the newly opened Diet Center.

Perhaps you’d like to start 2016 by trying something new. This month we take you on a tour of one of the hot new restaurants in town, Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse. We also take a closer look at the area’s first aerial gymnastics class, offered at West Chester Academy.

Some of us may resolve to do more volunteering or giving back in 2016. This month we share an inspirational story about a West Chester woman who is going above and beyond by giving a healthy kidney to help a friend in need.

Whatever you resolve this year, just remember that you don’t need to wait for another new year to start fresh. Each new month, week, day or hour provides us with a chance to refocus on our goals.

2016 holds a fresh slate of 366 new days awaiting us. Make the most of each day and enjoy your new year!
