These were the most read posts of the winter. Did you see them?

We’ve compiled a report of what’s been happening on the Wellness Almanac from January – March  – feel free to take a peek here: Wellness Almanac Q1 2018

We started the year with an acknowledgement to the original drafters of the Winds of Change’s healing vision, back in 2004, and a reminder that this is a team effort, and ended commemorating the anniversary of the Naskan Uxwal walk.

The content break-up on the website is a balance of:

  • news/events/what’s happening (32%);
  • opinion pieces, contributed by our fantastic line-up of contributors, as they explore topics like mental health, grief, racism, justice, kindness (53%);
  • photos that celebrate where we live (11%); and
  • seasonal observations (4%)
