It's time for a jingle about vegetables

I have a knack for remembering the theme songs to 80s television shows and commercials. (My husband is both in awe and disturbed by this "talent.") I would like to think that this is some sort of mental agility on behalf of my amazing memory, but the reality is that I watched too much TV and those jingles were meant to be catchy. So, they stuck in my brain, much like how I was stuck on Band-Aids brand ('cause Band-Aids stuck on…

Work at Home Moms: Things You Can Do To Keep Yourself Fit

Most moms have so little time to get into a regular home exercise program. Not only do they get so busy taking care of the kids, some of the today's moms also work at home, which makes it even harder to get to the gym or join a health club. There are errands to run, shopping to do, housework, soccer practice,…

The 15-minute mile

Something very silly occurred to me the other day, as I was thinking about how I don't make enough time in my day for exercise. My problem is that I have been looking at my schedule for a large block of time, but the truth is I don't need that. I just need 15 minutes.…

Later in life pregnancies

I am happy being the mother of one. My husband and I are satisfied with our family size and neither of us is pining for another baby. Don't get me wrong - I do sometimes wonder what life would be like with a second child (and it usually scares me a bit). Also - at least in my mind - I think of myself as too old to have another baby.…

Taking a moment to catch my breath

I took yoga in college, and I loved it. I felt that it was a great way for me to relax my body and my mind in the middle of a hectic workload. I learned how to stretch out my body, how to move for both relaxation and for energy and how to breathe.



It's funny how often I forget about that last…

Creams Vs. Pellet Therapy

Bioidentical hormone therapy, also known as natural hormone therapy helps with the normal restoration of biochemical balance in our body. It does not aggravate your risk of any side effects or complications in the long term as is seen with synthetic hormonal formulas. Having said that, the benefits and efficiency of the BHRT depends largely on its…

Love now = love later on in life

It must have been a particularly bad dream.



My son doesn't have bad dreams very often, but this one was awful enough for him to leave his bed, make his way down the stairs and traverse through the dark all the way to our bedroom. I woke at the sound of our door opening. He wasn't crying, but I did let him…

Staying home when you are sick

I was trying to concentrate at work, when I heard it. A phlegmy cough. Then a pause. Then that cough again. Someone in my office was sick.



I admit to being guilty of this myself - going to work while sick. I have rationalized this because I think "it's just a cold," that I can "work through it" or that I…

Saying good-bye to my fitbit

I'm not wearing my fitbit anymore.



A few months ago, my fitbit stopped recording my data. I was alarmed and upset as I tapped away at the screen only to stare into an empty, unlit space. After a long period of time on the charger, several internet searches and a pulled apart paperclip, I got it up and…

What We Must Learn from Japanese About Living A Long Life?

Staying and Working in Japan was an amazing experience for me. I stayed for a very long time in Nagoya and Tokyo. I learnt many interesting facts about healthy and happy lifestyle there.

The eyes have it

My eye doctor's office texted me to say that it was time for my annual eye exam. And I immediately set up my appointment.



To put this in perspective, my dentist and my regular doctor have also both notified me for an appointment. But I haven't responded to them. (I will, just not right now.)…

Even babies need a bedtime

When my son was a baby he slept all the time. (Mostly while laying on me.) I remember having to wake him up to feed him and all the times he fell asleep while still breastfeeding. When I asked our doctor about all this, she asked some questions about family history and determined that everything was fine. She added that we were lucky because our son slept so well.…

Iron Deficiency and What You Should Know

Iron deficiency was a HUGE problem for me before and during my pregnancy. So much so that I actually ended up needing iron infusions before delivery. It took several hours and a dose of steroids to stave off any potential reactions, but it was a complete game changer for me!



Although my fatigue still hung around, it was significantly lightened. My palpitations lessened, my bruises started clearing up within a few days, and I felt my appetite returning. And the ice craving and… Continue

Find Eldercare that Speaks Your Language

Recent demographic numbers have revealed that in Canada, approximately 29% of seniors (aged 65-84) were not born in Canada, considerably higher than the national average among non-seniors at 17%. While many came here earlier in life to find work and begin their families, others immigrated to Canada later on, often in order to be with children and grandchildren. As these seniors reach an age when they need assistance due to conditions such as dementia, arthritis, or visual impairment, it can…
