Mindset Reset

You may have seen me mention Mel Robbins on my blog in the past, or share her Tweets on Twitter, etc. I really like what she has to say. On January 1st, she started a 35-day online training program called Mindset Reset. It’s about learning to change your negative thinking habits into deliberate and positive…

2 steps to meet 2019 goals

In order to stick with my goals, and maybe help you stick with yours, I wanted to explore a bit how I plan to follow through this year. I learned a lot about taking micro-steps in 2018, I’ve put them into practice over the past several months, and they really do work. I’ve learned a…

Looking to traditional diets, there’s a common theme among them. In Diet & Nutrition, A Holistic Approach by Rudolph Ballentine, MD, a comparison is made from diets in India, China, Japan, France, Mexico, and Middle East.

A Bit of Ambience

This summer we visited beautiful Victoria, British Columbia (Canada). One of my favourite places, hands down. While there, we were introduced to Fan Tan Alley.

The importance of my morning yoga!

I learned much over the last three weeks while I dealt with a severe ear infection. Due to fluid moving around in my ear, it was quite painful and I couldn’t turn my head side to side or down towards the floor, or even lie down for that matter without some sort of pain. So,…

Killing Cardio with TED

I hate cardio workouts. I basically hate anything that’s repetitive. I came to realize that walking on a treadmill, cycling on a stationary bike, or skiing on an elliptical is just not going to cut it for me. I’m also too uncoordinated (aka embarrassed) to join a class. Cardio workouts are a real dilemma and…
