'Healthy Life - Mind, Body & Soul'
The attractive and free A4 glossy magazine covered subjects ranging from complementary therapies, countryside, wildlife, sustainability and more and received great acclaim.
Seven issues of the magazine were produced and received incredibly well, but it soon became apparent that it was not financially viable to increase the circulation without changing the essence of Healthy Life. It had always been part of our ethos that any advertising was appropriate to the magazine i.e. no double glazing, mobile phones, cars etc. It was also becoming even more important to us that the information we provided reached a wider audience. It became more and more obvious that the internet would be a more viable way of both retaining our ethos (you will see that, apart from our directories, there is no advertising on the site) and making the information available to more people. And so, much to many people’s disappointment, summer 2007 was the last issue of Healthy Life – Mind, Body & Soul.
Our intention was a seamless progression to the new web site, initially still called www.healthylife-mbs.com. (Subsequently re-branded www.HealthyLifeEssex.co.uk – a much more user-friendly web address!) But there were unforeseen technical issues to be resolved and it was not until November that the site was finally re-launched in its new format.
Information, articles, directory entries continue to be added on an almost daily basis and receiving the free online newsletter is the ideal way to be kept informed. And do keep an eye on the news blog!
