The Burnout and Your Health

The Burnout and Your Health

Of course I’ve touched on this before. It’s a frequent and relevant circumstance for city dwellers, entrepreneurs, and hard workers in general. I may not seem like a very go-with-the-flow kind of girl, but the truth is I very much can be. The trouble comes when the flow features that which is too much, too fast and all at once. All of a sudden, you’re riding a wave that’s surpassing important details, and certainly riding right over restoration (let’s use sleep, for an example). The result can be chronic guilt, exhaustion and malaise. I can’t stress the importance of taking some time to put your wellness on the front burner, to...

Jess’ Favourite Things, Dec 16: Health Food Store

Jess’ Favourite Things, Dec 16: Health Food Store

Essence of Life is one of my favourite health food stores in the city. It is inexpensive, the staff are helpful, and it has everything I am looking for when it’s time to stock up on groceries, supplements, beauty products… you name it. Yesterday I had the perfect snowy Sunday afternoon simply taking my time perusing through the tight yet super-stocked aisles, putting a basket together of both things on my list, and things that jogged my inspiration while there. Moonbeam coffee in hand. Head over to Kensington market and check out this little gem of a shop. You won’t be disappointed! Plus, it has wonderful health-inspired stocking stuffers....

Jess’ Favourite (Health) Things, Dec 2

Jess’ Favourite (Health) Things, Dec 2

FRESH! Yes, this vegetarian restaurant is across the street and thus lends itself to very frequent visits.  But, one big reason I love Fresh so much is because I’ve worked with its recipe creator, and can vouch for the ingredients it uses in my favourite dishes.  There are no nasty fillers in the food – it is a list on clean, top notch ingredients. I can recommend it to my clients whole-heartedly. Fresh is delicious, satiating, and has a dish for every palate. My top faves are: *The Beach Bowl *The Grounding Greens Bowl *Mega Life Salad *California Salad *Ace of Kales Salad *Electrolyte Green Smoothie   Fresh has a location on Crawford at Queen,...

Highs and Lows Lead to the Healthiest Balance

Highs and Lows Lead to the Healthiest Balance

We all know it can be so difficult to keep a balance sometimes.  Sometimes we feel like going really hardcore, other times we need to be a little bit more lenient. I have been working in this industry for a long time, but I have also been very introspective about my own relationship with my health and wellness over the years.  I started off by being really gung-ho and hardcore, and then have experienced highs and lows of motivation along the way, ever since. What can I say at this point? In the big picture, that is exactly how it should be, and with a low degree of extremes.  When you are having an off day or week, it is important to remember that it is sometimes...

Saghi: Curing Mindless Eating and Gearing up for the Honeymoon

Saghi: Curing Mindless Eating and Gearing up for the Honeymoon

These past two weeks have been up and down for me, both with food and my exercises. The majority of my meals have continued to be clean except for a day last week where I felt like I could eat anything and everything – I described it as feeling like a bottomless pit. I got so fed up that I texted Jess freaking out. She suggested doing some cardio. Jess says that in moments like that you just need to exercise and move around. I distracted myself with the run and was able to stop thinking about wanting to eat. After that one day I was able to refocus and continue eating clean, but I had no desire to work out. This was my long week at work where I have to work 9 days...
