Toluca Lake Magazine Issue Archive
We’re bringing a local flavor to the topic that’s foremost in so many minds this time of year: health and wellness. Eating better, exercising more and feeling less stressed top the list of most popular New Year’s resolutions year in and year out — but of course, if changing our habits were that easy, we wouldn’t be making these same resolutions over and over again. Fortunately, Toluca Lake and its surrounding areas are full of resources to support you in following through on your health goals year-round, from pro fitness tips to a wealth of ways to practice self-care and look and feel your best in 2020. But embracing change for the new year doesn’t mean giving up on timeless traditions, so you’ll still find plenty of event coverage, a hilarious historical memoir and a super-sized Pets of Toluca edition here as well.
