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 Midtown 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 adhering to your resolutions, plus some of their favorite healthy recipes, books, workout routines and so much more.

Thanks for reading, Midtown. Happy New Year!
