Here is an interesting video I came across which speaks to me as I believe movement is medicine and should be taken daily. I think about movement as a pill and ask myself if I took it today or not. I often get caught up in the time it takes to move and why I can’t just swallow it and be done with it.

How Sweet It Is!

November 17, 2017 • Written by

I’ve had it on my mind how to be a better person. I look at myself and see a bit of a tummy, sometimes I’m more tired then I’d like to be or something as simple as what I’m eating url-1would be a healthy change. Just trying to get rid of sugar was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I never realized how much sugar was in everything. This isn’t an understatement. Sugar is in my opinion the number one drug of today’s world. Read More →

More Fun = Better Grades

November 3, 2017 • Written by

As a student I was always looking for ways to get better marks and if possible with less work. Little did I know that shooting hoops with my friends and playing co-ed intramural volleyball was doing exactly that.

A recent article quoted a study from Purdue showed students “who visited rec facilities 15 times or more earned 3.08 GPAs, compared with 2.81 for those who made no visits.” Further evidence for the benefits of visiting your campus recreation centre are shown in a study that “Recreational sports and fitness center members achieved higher GPAs and completed more credits than non-members.” Read More →

Here it is the magic buzz word of today’s diet fads of what to eat and not to eat. But is it Gluten freereally a fad? Maybe people have heard of gluten free diets and many people are opting to not have gluten in their diet but why? How do I know if I even have gluten intolerance?

Tips for Balancing Life/School/Work

January 27, 2017 • Written by

When I went to university half way into the school year, I still hadn’t found that feeling of being in stride with it. I understood the routine of getting up for classes and making sure I caught my bus at the same time every time, I felt the stress of workload piling up on me and I could barely see any free moments to spend time just relaxing and not thinking, just still being young and having fun.

I thought my new goal resolutions would’ve held out but who was I kidding. I knew it would be the same pattern as every time I tried years before which, even just that thinking had already set me up for failure. I knew that if I was to succeed with what I wanted out of life I had to really take a good look at myself. Really see who I was and face some of the unwanted answers that might be me. This would mean I would have to make some tough decisions as well as maybe change the way I live and recognize some patterns.

Here are some tips which have helped me and still to this day have made my life one that I design for myself and not something that others have programmed for me. Read More →
