My Best Life: Being Thankful

 

Last Week's Strategy



Last week's strategy was to start a "Joy Journal". It is often so easy to get lured into dwelling on the negative and forgetting about the positive things in our lives. Of all the strategies I have tried over the past three months, this has been one of my favourites! Every day at the end of the day, I think of ONE happy/joyful moment in my day and I record it in my joy journal. I was pleasantly surprised by how hard it was…

Prenatal Yoga Is Deepening My Yoga Practice

 

I have been taking yoga classes since I was pregnant with my first child. Over the past four years I have been practicing yoga off and on. This beautiful, fluid form of exercise which ends with a ten to fifteen minute rest is my absolute favourite physical activity.



However, today while at prenatal yoga class I had an epiphany....…

Decorating Challenge - Covering Glass Blocks

 

My husband and I were not a couple when he bought our condo. Why he bought it, I don't know. The people who lived here before us had no concept of interior design. Now I admit I've watched endless amounts of home decorating shows and I've consistently said that everyone has their own tastes in decor. However, I think most people would agree that decorating a kitchen with mauve coloured cabinets, yellow back splash tiles and completing the look with white and green laminate flooring…

The Cowgirl Phase

 

A child passes through many phases in childhood. Whether it's the phase when they suck their thumb, they are attached to a favourite blankie or have an imaginary friend, these are phases that undoubtedly remain in a parent's memory.



Right now my daughter is going through one of those phases. My husband and I have fondly named it "The Cowgirl Phase"....…

My Best Life - Eat More Vegetables

I'm willing to admit, I probably don't eat as many vegetables as I should. However, this is another positive side to pregnancy... an increased awareness of the amount of vegetables I should be eating and a commitment to increasing my intake.



I definitely need to eat more veggies, so here's my strategies for the week in order to increase the amount of veggies I eat every day....…

My Best Life - Volunteering

 

Last week I shared that I wanted to live My Best Life but more importantly I wanted to help others live their best life. The experience of volunteering with those less fortunate was an eye-opening one. I've spent the last week meditating on how I can make others' lives better. I have composed a list of the ways in which I can help others and every few weeks I will share a strategy with you.



Since this meditation is so recent, I thought I would share my first action with…
