Happy Holidays!

It’s amazing that December is here and hard to believe the year is less than a month away from being over.

December is such an important month. Everyone is running around getting their last minute holiday shopping done, putting up decorations, and getting ready for family and friends to arrive.

Why not take a few moments to relax from the holiday chaos and enjoy our December issue? There is so much to read! Not only do we cover all the fun things to do this time of year in our beautiful city, but we also offer ways to help you make 2016 your best year ever!

For starters, our feature article, “Staying Healthy and Active as We Age,” offers tips from Eskaton, Capital Athletic Club, and Senior Computer School on keeping both the body and mind healthy as we get older.

Something as simple as a good night’s sleep can also have a huge impact on your quality of life. For those suffering with sleep apnea, Dr. Ashkan Alizadeh of Marconi Dental Group talked to us this month about a dental device that can help.

Maybe your looking to get your finances healthier in 2016? Bryan J. Bentley, investment advisor at Bentley Financial, offers eight tips for year-end financial planning. Pay close attention to this article as their advice is tremendously important as we monitor the trends of our ever-changing economy.

And we even offer ideas on making the most of your home in 2016! Valerie Valentine at Design Galleria by Valentine, Inc., offers a variety of tips, from lighting to floral arrangements.

As always, we sincerely thank you for bringing us into your home each month. We enjoy working hard to put together a publication worthy of your time. We are grateful for the wonderful support and kind comments we have received regarding our new publication, and we are thankful for and honored by the participation of our advertisers.

We wish everyone a very healthy and happy Holiday Season and look forward to a strong finish to 2015, while looking forward to a new start in 2016.

From all of us here at Sacramento Lifestyle, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
