Two minds are better than one: Working out with a partner

I always hated on working out with a partner. Mainly because it is fairly difficult to find a partner that is on the same level as you, without feeling like you will come in the way of their workout or vice versa. Definitely not all wrong. Many people will agree that there are both pros…

Best Workout parks just outside of Montreal

My fondest memories as a child were outdoors and involved skipping rope, climbing, sliding down and running but usually had ended with scraped, bloody knees and a nap. Now that I have matured as a ridiculously responsible adult that always behaves in a serious manner (For those that know me, I wrote it for your chuckle), sometimes…

Night Shift and Working out

 From emergency dispatchers to doctors, responders to construction workers and let’s please not forget our homecare support workers require us to not only work odd hours such as the reputable “graveyard” shift but to work long hours that can stretch out to double shifts. It is already a challenge to maintain or even jumpstart a healthy lifestyle. Working on the opposite…

Beating Adult Acne

They told me I would only get this way during puberty. They said they’ll go away if I stopped touching them, if I stayed positive, if I used their products, their creams, their oil free cleansing anti-sebum dirt fighting alcohol infused DIY creams! They sold me these lies during such a vulnerable time of my…

My health: Decluttering

There are many benefits to being highly organized. Once one is in their healthy and organized routine, it is hard to think back into the cluttered mind. Although, counterproductively, a cluttered mind cannot think about organizational skills being simple or in reach. Clutter easily builds an overwhelming and sometimes even an overpowered feeling . Juggling all of life’s…

My health: Bouncing Back

Life will consistently throw you a couple of hard ones. It almost seems destined that every time there is a stability in one’s own life, there has to be something either stronger or absolutely beyond control that can lead one to feeling  that their chances of finding that same stability is jeopardized. If you are…
