It is my pleasure to
welcome you to the first issueof Apple magazine, a jointeffort with Alberta HealthServices. This magazine aimsto speak to Albertans aboutall the things that are a part ofa lifestyle that values healthand personal wellness.
I am, and have alwaysbeen, a voracious magazinereader — those glossy tomeswith topics ranging fromthe supremely superficial toworld issues of the greatestimport. But, with all of thevariety, there are just toofew publications out therethat speak to a whole healthylifestyle in a context that canapply to my life. There are alot of magazines that focuson fitness and nutrition. And,while being in good physicalshape is a fundamental partof being healthy, achievingsix-pack abs or fitting into asmaller dress size doesn’t tellthe whole story of what it isto pursue a well-rounded,healthy life in Alberta.
In Apple, we’ll talk abouthealth and wellness fromthe perspective of Albertans.
And we’ll talk about fitness,as well as money matters,knowing your body (“Morethan tired eyes,” pg. 8) andhow to be an active part of ahealthy community (“Project Tomorrow,” pg. 36). Weknow that you have peoplein your life whose health andquality of life matters to you— parents, siblings, spouses,children and friends. You’llfind topics helpful to them inthese pages.
Apple is about you, yourlife and how to live it a littlebit healthier every day. Asyou change and grow, and itis our goal as a magazine togrow along with you. Thankyou for making us a part ofyour healthy lifestyle, and,again, welcome!
