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…

Mindful Eating

You guys might be tired of my repeating this definition. Being mindful is to take all feeling from the outside world to the inside of the mind into consideration such as the how, what, when, where and who. It sounds easier said than done. Practicing mindfulness means to appreciate a unique feeling. For instance, being…

5 Signs your relationships may be TOXIC

Meeting different people and making connections are part of life. Long lasting connections are that of a rare kind as those are the relationships that lead to something greater: family.
