My husband Mr. Chattering (a.k.a. Steve Waldman) and spirituality editor Valerie Reiss (who’ll be blogging for me while I vacation in two weeks) have a short “Periscope” item in the current issue of Newsweek in which they define what makes Lohasians tick.

What are Lohasians? You are most certainly entitled to ask. They are people who live Lifestyles of Heath and Sustainability). Translation: That’s anybody “dedicated to personal and planetary health.” It’s estimated that we make up about 17 percent of the American population. For greater understanding, have a look at the online Newsweek link.

You can also check out Beliefnet’s list of all things Lohasian and take a quiz to assess your own Lohasian quotient.
