What shall we write? What goals will we set for the year ahead? Of course, we all want to live healthy, happy lives. So, in this issue, I profile Stacy and Tom McCarthy, a Rancho Santa Fe couple who have been at the forefront of health and wellness for decades. I visit them at their expansive estate where exercise (pickleball, anyone?), yoga, meditation, and a healthy diet are built into their daily routines. Stacy, a well-regarded yoga teacher who holds classes in person and around the world via Zoom, and Tom, a motivational/peak performance coach who works with CEOs and top athletes, practice what they preach and share their thoughts on living our best lives. We have heard much about sustainability over the years. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, "Sustainability is based on a simple principle: Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations." Managing Editor Deanna Murphy meets with a handful of people — growers, purveyors, and brewers — who are in the trenches, addressing sustainability as it applies to our food supply: Ultimately, as they all agree, it's important to know our sources, where and how we get our food, and to buy organically and locally wherever possible. e result is a healthier world and a healthier you. On the subject of sustainability, more and more automakers are giving Tesla a run for its money, leading to a far broader selection and making electric vehicles more widely available. Automotive expert Brian Douglas takes us for a spin in Volvo's Polestar, which has just opened a showroom at Westfield UTC. Travel Editor Elizabeth Hansen explores Ecuador's storied Galápagos Islands, a national park and marine reserve, during an intimate Ecoventura cruise staffed with two naturalists for its 20 guests. Whether snorkeling, hiking, or kayaking, Hansen offers a close-up look at an area teeming with wildlife from manta rays to her favorite blue footed boobies, and rediscovers her appreciation for the natural world. Stateside, I travel to Arizona, the setting for the Super Bowl and other big sporting events, and learn this desert paradise has much more to offer, including health and wellness activities, art exhibitions, and festivals galore. From all of us at Ranch & Coast, we wish you a happy, healthy, and sustainable year ahead! ranchandcoast.com 16 JANUARY 2023 RANCH & COAST MAGAZINE
