Women's magazines line the check out aisles of every super market, Walmart, K-Mart, Target and book store. They even can be found on the shelves of the news stands in the airports and large city outdoor magazine kiosks. Health, exercise, beauty, family, décor, and baby magazines are the most popular women's magazines. When choosing to subscribe or purchase one of the popular magazines like Shape, Elle Décor, Women's Fitness, "O", Cosmopolitan, Self and others, a consumer should remember to choose carefully. All the magazines will contain quizzes, puzzles, horoscopes, lots of advertising and other items to keep the reader entertained. But does the magazine contain interesting articles? The best way to judge the quality of a magazine is to find it entertaining, educational, and informative. Frankly I do not want to read over and over again about what a "man wants to hear in bed", or "how to burp your baby". I like to read about the latest exercise equipment, how a woman started her own business and became successful, what is the latest dress style and what type of jewelry you would wear with it, or how to prepare a delicious quick meal that contains under 400 calories. If you get lost reading for an hour, that is a good magazine. What if you are a married woman, for example, you probably do not need to know about all the latest dating tips, and if you are a single woman you do not need a magazine devoted to working out marriage problems just yet. Regardless of how relevant the information might be, no one will read a magazine unless you want to. If the magazine routinely publishes articles that do not interest the reader, it is probably a good idea for that person not to subscribe to it. She will probably also pass it up when it is available in the check out line. A good way to know what women's good health magazine appeals to you, is to pick it up while in line at the grocery store and thumb through it. If you are at the airport waiting for your plane to depart, go into one of the magazine stores and browse through one or two. I really like going to the local book store like Barnes and Nobel, get a cup of coffee, sit down and choose a couple of magazines to read. I start with a gossip magazine like People, go to fashion next and end up with an exercise magazine looking for the latest butt blaster routine that works. There are plenty of women's magazines on the market and many with great content. Buy a couple of magazines, draw a warm bath and read in the tub for an hour or so before going to bed. That is a great way to spend a Friday or Saturday night.
