“Wellness means having a healthy body, a sound mind, and a spirit that is at peace.”
~V. Coppes

Your health + wellness are the most important things in your life. They literally impact how everything else happens and is received by you.

We’ve learned in time that wellness is not just about physical activity and good nutrition. It includes positive choices and a sense of fulfillment. It helps to know that having overall wellness includes these seven dimensions: mental, physical, social, financial, spiritual, environmental, and vocational. These dimensions are interdependent and influence each other and when one dimension of our wellbeing is out of balance, the other dimensions are affected.

That’s why I am thrilled with the outcome of this issue. It will walk you through resources to effectively align these dimensions so that you can live your most BELLA life!

From good-for-you beauty products and fabulous and healthy hair ideas, to travel to restore your spirit and the importance of showing yourself compassion,
our editors have been hard at work to bring you the very best recommendations.

I have to admit having a total BELLA Boss crush on our cover star Tracy Anderson. She is someone whom I’ve admired from afar for years, and meeting her in person did not disappoint. Her story is a powerful one as she’s made a career commitment to helping men and women improve their lives. Read all about her starting on page 74.

At the beginning of last year, I learned about Rodrigo Garduño, a fellow Latino who is also bringing wellness transformation to millions around the world, starting in Mexico and Miami, and launching just last month in NYC. His journey is truly commendable! You can learn all about it on pages 66-69.

As always, my team and I have poured our hearts into these pages. The stories and resources are all designed to support you in pursuing the best version of yourself. And although we continue to tread uncharted waters, I can’t help but embrace the collective pursuit of joy in this new year.

With much love as always,

Vanessa Coppes
