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 to ‘future-proof’ your career

February 13, 2018 • Written by

Earlier this month, students from Red River College received expert advice on how to “future-proof” their careers, in order to protect themselves against technological advances that could disrupt the workforce and threaten jobs.

The advice came courtesy of Sean Mullin, executive director at Toronto’s Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship, who spoke at the inaugural DisruptED: Future of Work conference in Winnipeg on Feb. 1 and 2.

During his presentation, Mullin quoted a recent report from the Brookfield Institute, which found that 42 per cent of Canadian jobs are now susceptible to automation. The same report found that youths aged 15 to 24 are among those most vulnerable to the effects of automation, accounting for nearly 20 per cent of high-risk occupations.

That may sound disheartening to someone entering the work force and attempting to find meaningful work for the first time. Has job security really become a thing of the past? Well, yes and no.

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 →

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 →
