Letter from the Publishers

As longtime locals, we’ve always taken a lot of inspiration from the words on the Modesto Arch: Water, Wealth, Contentment, Health. All of those words describe the great things about our area, but we’ve always thought that contentment and health are the two most essential components for happiness.

Water and wealth are fantastic but your contentment and your health are the things you can affect, that you nourish your whole life. The things that make you… well, you!

These days, everybody is concerned with health. There’s so much that goes into health, but we noticed there are a lot of ways to stay healthy in our area that don’t get any press. So we knew it was up to us to get the word out, and that’s just what Contentment Health will do every issue.

Whether you’re looking for mainstream health information or you’re interested in alternative health options, there are lots of practitioners in the community who are eager to help you live better, and we’re just as eager to profile them and maybe just introduce you to some healthy options you haven’t discovered yet! With contentment, we mean everything else. All the things that matter to you and make your life better. Whether you get your contentment from staying engaged in your community, from gardening or pursuing your hobbies, from our thriving art scene or just from building great memories with the people you love, every person seeks their own contentment.

This magazine is really all about helping everyone find an ideal level of emotional, psychological and physical health in Stanislaus County. There are so many cool things in our area to celebrate, so many unknown heroes out there doing amazing things and so many hidden gems to shine a light on, and we can’t wait to get started!
