Trying Yoga for Flexibility

I don’t regret growing older. It’s taken me sometime to gain the wisdom, patience and self esteem I feel I currently possess. The one thing I wish I also worked on was maintaining my flexibility. My body thinks nothing about reminding me of my age with each bend and stretch but that doesn’t mean adding flexibility is out of reach. […]

5 Easy Ways to Add to a Healthy Lifestyle

When I worked at home I could slip in a little fitness whenever I wanted, my day was pretty flexible, but ever since returning to office life it’s been harder trying to fit this into my day. Harder but not impossible, especially with the addition of technology. I, like fifty-two per cent of wearable owners (MaRS Market Insights), find technology helps to keep me motivated around my healthy endeavours. […]

Childhood Pastimes That Will Keep You Fit

It’s the start of the week, after a long weekend of over indulging, so of course my mind turns toward my fitness habits or lack there of. Why does staying fit have to be so hard? Why does it have to feel like so much work? Why can’t we just call up all of that energy and fun we had as kids to keep ourselves moving? Wait, maybe that’s what we should be doing. […]

If This is Panic, Where’s the Trigger?

Breath. This has happened before. I’m not sure what triggers it but I hate the feeling. It’s not the same as when my mind won’t shut down. You know what I mean. Thoughts just keep circulating through your brain, random, on their own. You try to convince yourself to stop thinking, even yell at yourself, in your mind. That’s not fun either but it’s different.

Kids Helping Kids With Medical Research Studies

The adolescent stage my oldest is going through has had its fair share of challenges but I wouldn’t change it for anything after our rough start. It was thirteen years ago this April when my daughter arrived, two months too soon. It wasn’t the introduction into motherhood I had anticipated but thanks to the care we received from our city’s excellent medical staff she is now that amazing thirteen year old, giving me grief over phone time, clothes and friends.

Celebrating Consonant Skincare’s Expansion

I am a big fan of Canadian brand Consonant Skincare and their collection of natural products, from their multitasking DHE Mask to their new baby line and everything in between. So you can imagine my excitement about the opening of their second store location in downtown Toronto in the P.A.T.H underground. To celebrate our Junior Style Blogger and myself attending the media opening. […]

My Eyes Remind Me of My Age

I remember being in school and saying my parents were 36 years old. For years they were 36, never aging. Not physically but in my mind. Now as an adult I still don’t give age much thought. If someone was to ask I have to do the math, current year minus my birth year. […]
