How a Test Result Helped Changed My Perspective of Exercise

bruno-nascimento-149663

I’m not going to lie, weight wasn’t something I struggled with until recent years. I was very athletic growing up and was always in a competitive sport. Some because I enjoyed playing them and others because they helped keep me physically conditioned until my favorite sports came back in season. About 7 years ago, I put on quite a bit of weight. Between hormone imbalances, depression, and a desk job, I packed on the pounds. Before I knew it my test results Continue reading “How a Test Result Helped Changed My Perspective of Exercise”

This is a guest post written by Karin Brauner, a psychotherapeutic counsellor.

Have you ever been in a situation when you feel like you can’t keep your emotions under control? Like they have taken over, your thoughts are all over the place and making a sensible decision is not going to happen? You just want to hide for a while or make the problem magically disappear. You’re talking to people near you at that point, but they aren’t understanding what’s happening to you. Why you’re so upset and speaking like that? What is going on? Nobody can help you at that point, not even yourself. You have dealt with stuff like this before, but this time it’s different. This time you’ve lost it all. Lost the ability to cope, to think, to breathe, to ask for help even.

When you think of yoga what comes to mind? Probably really flexible people doing all sorts of handstands and other balancing poses. I know that’s what I thought when I first started thinking about yoga. “Well, I’ll get there. That’s what it’s all about right?” That’s what I told myself. “It’s all about learning to do awesome poses that I can upload to Instagram and show off to the world.” Continue reading “A New Way to Think About Yoga”

As the seasons change, it’s easy to lose sight of our healthy goals.  We choose the couch over the treadmill. Maybe there are a few more pizza deliveries when it becomes much harder to get fresh, local, fruit and vegetables. While that approach is certainly easier, it won’t lead to great health outcomes over time. It’s time to start thinking about healthy habits that last throughout the seasons.   Continue reading “Healthy In Every Season”

Do you struggle to switch off and relax? I mean really relax without the urge to just switch on the tv or your iPad as a distraction. Struggling to switch off, isn’t just an adult problem, sadly it is now very much a child and teenage problem as well. Constant over stimulation from unhealthy thinking and poor lifestyle and behavior patterns are playing havoc with a large majority of the world’s population.  Many think it’s just the way life is. They don’t realize or recognize with simple lifestyle changes how much easier life can be. Continue reading “GUEST POST|Simple Ways You And Your Family Can STOP And Let Go Of Stress”

Sleep, Dreams & Technology

Years ago, I identified I needed a minimum of 8 hours of sleep to function at my best (when I say a minimum of 8 I really mean I feel awesome with 9 or 10). While getting the amount of sleep my body requires isn’t an issue for me, I thought this video might be helpful for those that do struggle with it. There are so many aspects of sleep discussed in this video from societal norms to the science behind sleep and the importance of dreaming. I encourage you to bookmark this and come back to it when you can watch the video because it has lots of great information and information to reflect on.

Voice, Message, & Intention

I think a very important aspect of being emotionally healthy is being able to speak your voice. Holding in your thoughts and feelings is uncomfortable and unhealthy. As an energy worker, I believe that we are more than our physical body and that our physical health depends upon our emotional, mental, and spiritual health in addition to nurturing and maintaining the physical.  Continue reading “Voice, Message, & Intention”
