Supporting Our Beloved Local Businesses during the Pandemic

Local businesses are a vital component of our community. Sadly, many of them have been deeply impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and are having a difficult time staying afloat during these trying times. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways we can help support them while adhering to safe physical distancing standards. Whether it’s ordering take-out from our favorite local restaurants, purchasing items from their online stores, buying gift cards and certificates for future in-person use, or participating in their virtual coaching or fitness services, we can all play a part in ensuring the future success of our community businesses. 

As you know, our Natural Awakenings advertisers are the lifeblood of this magazine. We love our beloved community partners and want nothing more than to see them continue to thrive. Our advertisers are doing everything they can to continue to support our healthy living community by offering products and services in accordance to social distancing guidelines as well. For instance, did you know the Chari Center of Health is currently offering virtual community clinics on important Coronavirus information? Find them at

And there is no better time than now to set up your free 15-minute consultation with author, coach and speaker, Carolyn Gross of Creative Life Solutions. She offers crisis management and transition coaching and has just released her newest book, Rise Above the Chaos: How to Keep Positive in an Unsettled World.  Connect at

In addition, our advertisers offer online stores filled with wholesome skincare products and natural health supplements to boost the immune system; safe and fast organic cannabis delivery services; virtual life coaching services, telemedicine, biofeedback and naturopathic consultations, and much, much more.  Over the coming weeks, we will continue to keep you informed on all the ways our community partners are available to continue to support you on your path to better health.
