Music Mondays: Darius – Hot Hands

Music Mondays: Darius – Hot Hands

It’s March! (Doesn’t bloody well feel like it out there, but it is!) So, let’s steam our way through this month until spring. Since we all need a little energy boost and revitalization in the gym, and I am a self-confessed music junkie, I’ve decided to bring back “Music Mondays” and to feature an amazing workout song to add to your playlists every Monday for the next little while. The songs will be super hot, super motivating and will help to keep you pumping on those days when your energy might otherwise be lacking. A great start to the week! Today’s track is Hot Hands by Darius. Follow the link here, and you can buy it on...

You + the Sun: Vitamin D and Protection

You + the Sun: Vitamin D and Protection

Well, I’m sitting here in Costa Rica with some pretty red shoulders (and, a pretty patterned body overall). Conveniently, I saw a post on Instagram by the knowledgeable, practical and widely respected Megan Telpner on sun protection and vitamin D. It was info she was sharing from Living Libations. (I highly recommend following Megan on instagram for tons of tips: @MeganTelpner). My father and I have often argued about sunscreen. Yes, I believe that baking for hours and hours is a terrible idea. But, I also don’t love slathering myself in toxic sunscreen. What’s a girl to do? When you know your body, you can sort of tell how much time you’ll be...

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....
