Mindful Healthy Life Expands Online Resources for Metro D.C. Parents

May 31, 2016 08:48AM
The website is metro D.C.’s online lifestyle magazine for natural-minded parents. Launched two years ago on Earth Day, the site features an event calendar, a resource directory and a blog of news and tips of interest to parents pursuing family wellness. Mindful Healthy Life aims to increase the visibility of holistic family living in the metro D.C. area and to connect parents to the resources they need. The site was created by Northern Virginia writer and mother of two, Jessica Claire Haney.

Since becoming a parent 10 years ago, Haney wished for a local website for parents pursuing a natural lifestyle, especially for those new to D.C. or to holistic approaches. Mindful Healthy Life became that site. The event calendar is free for anyone to add relevant events.

Haney is also working on Guide to Holistic Family Living in Metro DC to be released this fall as an e-book to subscribers of Mindful Healthy Life. Subscribe for free at

The site’s online resource directory has more than 250 entries of local businesses and organizations and will provide the basis of the e-book. Through June 15, listings may be added for free. After that, new listings will incur a small one-time fee. Resources that serve natural-minded families can enter themselves in the directory by going to and clicking “Submit a Listing.”

Mindful Healthy Life also offers additional opportunities for event promotion and business exposure, including sponsored posts, giveaways and partnerships. For details, visit or email [email protected]
