  • How to Manage Social Distancing

    Kelsey Hergott |

    It’s officially (spring) quarantine. Everything fun and non-essential is closed or suspended indefinitely and social events are a big no-go because it’s vital to everybody that we work together to limit the spread of CoVid-19 and get the country back on track.    The public health practice of social distancing helps limit transmission of communicable diseases and it’s the recommended course of action by governments across the world. Some people don’t feel it necessary and continue life as usual without any regard to the art and science of making sure Canada’s curve is flat as possible. The Washington Post created four really cool…

  • How Time Management Can Improve your Wellness Game

    Kelsey Hergott |

    Two themes continuously popping up on social media right now are time management and self-esteem. February is only the second month of the year but many people have already lost the pep, spunk and willpower they brought into the New Year.

  • The Art of Goal Setting

    Kelsey Hergott |

    Goals should always be a centre focus of your life but right now is the time of year where goals are really in the spotlight in the form of New Year’s resolutions, which is a pretty doomed type of goal strategy. 

    New Year's resolutions often fail because we throw out or lose focus of our end goals. Goals related to fitness, health and physical appearance improvement are pretty much on everybody’s list. As a result, we throw ourselves into workout routines with the goal of proving to ourselves that “we got this, this is the year I make the change. This time is the time it’s going to work.”

  • 5 Ways to Prioritize YOURSELF During the Holidays

    Kelsey Hergott |

    The holiday season is synonymous with thinking about the needs of others. While it's great to remember and take care of the people who take priority in your life, you can’t put yourself at the bottom of the list. It’s also your holiday and it should be the most wonderful time of the year for everybody, including you. Traveling, managing relatives, hosting, cooking, cleaning and shopping while maintaining your regular commitments and work schedule can leave you pretty empty and you can’t pour from an empty cup, much less feel joyous, relaxed and thankful. It’s most definitely not an acceptable way for you to start the new decade!

  • 5 Ways to Manage Stress

    Kelsey Hergott |

    Death, taxes and stress. The optimal role stress plays in everyday life is a motivational one. Stress should help you function as a productive person. If you didn’t stress over deadlines or targets, than you would be more willing to put off or forgo hitting them completely. In reality, we all know first hand that’s not how it works. Healthline reports 70% of adults feel stress on a daily basis. Regular or daily stress is considered routine stress which is the hardest type of stress to recognize in yourself. It just becomes a hardship you gradually become more and more conditioned to…

  • 3 Tips to Increase Productivity

    Kelsey Hergott |

    Working for yourself can definitely have its ups and downs. It’s not always as “fun” as it may appear to be and what’s often looked over are the many hours spent working on projects before they come into fruition.

  • Benefits of Living with Gratitude

    Kelsey Hergott |

    The concept of gratitude is a common theme across most fitness and health thought leadership with many experts preaching gratitude as a practice with proven physical, mental and social benefits. With time, the practitioner of grateful living will experience enhanced wellbeing. With Thanksgiving on the horizon, gratitude often gets a little extra shine, as many people have traditions with friends and family involving giving thanks such as organizing food drives, volunteering and being more generous with donations to favorite charities and causes.

  • FALL Back in Love with FITNESS!

    Kelsey Hergott |

    WHERE DID SUMMER GO!? It’s hard to believe Summer 19' has come to an end which means fall is just around the corner! Fall is my favourite time of the year for many reasons… the fashion, the food, and the focus on gratitude. I believe that September is the perfect time to take a step back and look inwards in order to make any necessary changes (especially after an indulgent summer) as we slowly start to approach a new year. When the temperature begins to drop, we become extra motivated for new beginnings with the desire to shed our old habits and things that weigh us…

    Kelsey Hergott |

    If you’re not a runner, the idea of starting a running routine or completing a race can seem far outside of your comfort zone. Oftentimes, when we think of runners, we think of athletes in peak performance, running miles on end without stopping or slowing down. However, this doesn’t have to be the case! No matter your run level, the activity itself can be motivating, freeing, and of course, great for your cardiovascular health.
