Together we can inspire people to feel better and find balance with our pearls of wisdom for those ready for personal growth. If you are an unpublished, first-time writer, I encourage you to submit your story or article.

Departments

Elements For A Healthier Life Magazine’s editorial departments and topics speak to the essence of the authentic self. We strive to bring inspirational, informative content to support you, our audience, personally and professionally. No matter where you are on your journey, it is our greatest desire that you will find the resources, tools, and wisdom to support you throughout our magazine.

The Workplace

We spend most of our waking hours focused on our jobs and the work place. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, executive or a work-at-home mom, the articles and stories in this section will offer examples of finding balance between work and home, how to get ahead in the workplace, and starting and maintaining a business. Share your ideas on how to support individuals in their desire to thrive in their workplace.

Relationships

Our relationships bring us our greatest blessings as well as our greatest challenges. We welcome positive, heart-centered stories and articles ranging from family, intimate relationship and friendships. Share the pearls of wisdom you have learned and hopeful experiences.

Spirituality

We find peace of mind when we feel connected to the divine (God/Spirit/Universe). Spirituality is about loving and having compassion towards our self and others. Explore various ways to experience peace of mind, mental relaxation, personal discovery, trust your intuition and develop a deeper sense of self-love (please note: this section is not intended to convert or alter anyone’s beliefs or religious practices).

Body Movement

To some exercise is a dirty word; to others it is a way of life. Share with our audience your triumphs, struggles, wisdom gained, resources and the tips you’ve learn on the journey to move that gorgeous body of yours.

In The Kitchen

We have a complex, yet simple, relationship with food. It is the energy that fuels our life. I am strong believer in one man’s food is another person’s poison. This is broad subject, and a delicious one at that. How did you change your meals to be healthier? How did an illness affect your dinner plate? Did your overcome a sugar addition; how did you do it? We turn to food for many reasons. Share your story; you could help someone to find the encouragement for wellness, feel less alone in their situation, or simply add some pizzazz to meal-time.

Do you have a family favorite recipe you’d like to share? Be sure to include photographs and complete step-by-step instructions.

“Inspire someone to explore the
elements for a healthier life
with your pearls of wisdom, articles and stories.”

Magazine’s Monthly Theme

At C.K. Kochis, LLC, we do things a little different than what most are accustom. There is no set monthly theme to each issue.  As a heart-centered magazine, a common thread naturally occurs and becomes clear when the editorial team paginates the pages after the submission deadline.   C.K. Kochis, Editor and Publisher, is a strong believer in ‘following your heart’; especially when it comes to writing. The Writer’s Inspiration page offers a variety of ideas and motivation. When you sit down to write, and inspiration fills the pages – that’s what you are meant to write and share. Those are the submissions we are seeking to publish. #WriteOn!

Still not sure if your idea fits our magazine, send your query to WritetoCindy@ElementsForAHealthierLife.com.

Elements For A Healthier Life Magazine has a newsstand price.  We know our product is valuable and priced fairly.  It is expected that if you’d like to read your submission after publication that you’ll purchase that issue.  You would not approach a dressmaker, take the pretty red dress they stitched together off the hanger, and expect to wear it to dinner without paying for it.   As a writer in several collaborative projects, I pay for the books I place on my bookshelf.
