  • Patio Hopping with Your Health In Mind

    Kelsey Hergott |

    I’m trying to contain my excitement here… But ladies and gentlemen, it’s here! Finally we can step out into the world and set up camp on a patio under a shining sun, surrounded by music, friends, and good vibes that last all day. I can’t help but feel a boost in my mood when dining al fresco becomes a thing again. After all, we wait all winter for this moment – we deserve it! When social calendars start to build up with the sunny seasons, I get more and more questions about how to dine out while keeping yourself and health in mind. Which is totally fair, given the hidden healthy menu items a lot of restaurants can try and trick you with. Sorry, Diet Pepsi, looking at you here.

  • Spring Cleaning: What else you should be tidying this time of year

    Kelsey Hergott |

    Each new season brings a feeling of refreshed renewal, but especially Spring. 

     

    Everyone starts to come out of hibernation; the neighbour you didn’t know you had, your cute shoes that were stuck at the back of your closet, even the bears who were lucky enough to just check out for four months of the year. And if your house was anything like mine growing up, it definitely marks the beginning of the (somewhat dreaded) Spring cleaning. As soon as you saw the mop and bucket that were older than you come out, you knew it was time to get down to business.

  • How to generate health, wealth, and prosperity for yourself this year

    Kelsey Hergott |

    You know those types of people who just seem to radiate good fortune? It’s like everything that comes their way is purely based on luck; everything they touch turns to gold. It’s enough to make you want to say, “Hey, leave a little for the rest of us!” But what if it’s not a so-called “lack of luck” that’s holding you back from success and turning everything you touch into gold…

  • How to Defeat the Impostor Within and Come out Thriving

    Kelsey Hergott |

    If you’re new to the term, impostor syndrome basically means you’re someone who walks around feeling like a fraud, despite having the background, training, and knowledge to back yourself up. Let’s say for example you’re a professionally trained Chef, but maybe you’re a female in male-dominated industry, so you walk into work every day feeling like you’re undeserving of your title. Like you don’t belong. There are many reasons why you could be a sufferer of impostor syndrome, but many say that it’s a result of being a perfectionist or an over-achiever, therefore you never feel good enough and are always striving for more acceptance.

  • The Key to Planning: Start Small, Win Big

    Kelsey Hergott |

    If you’re a planner, after yet another year of unpredictability, you might be feeling more than a little discouraged. 

     

    It’s funny, it’s often said that whenever you make plans, God laughs. 

     

    Because no matter how much time and effort you put into crafting out the picture perfect scenario, there’s one thing you lack: control.

  • 31 Ways to Gift your Mind + Body

    Kelsey Hergott |

    I’m a strong believer that in order to best serve those around us and show up as the best version of ourselves every single day, we have to put ourselves first. Whether that means incorporating some meditating in your mornings, hitting up a spa every now and then, or listing out what you’re grateful for at the end of each day, focusing on your own self-care will work wonders for you (and those around you) in the long run. So whatever self-love looks like for you, here’s a list of 31 days and ways you can incorporate it into one of the busiest months of the year. I guarantee taking the time to do so will allow you to breeze through December feeling stronger, bolder, and more present wherever your schedule takes you this holiday season.

  • ‘Tis The Season for SAD

    Kelsey Hergott |

    The colder weather brings a plethora of unpleasantries with it: dry skin, chapped lips, a goodbye to cute sundresses, and that old familiar friend, Seasonal Affective Disorder. Seasonal Affective Disorder might be the reason you’re taking the colder months harder than usual. It’s completely normal to feel a little down when the sunshine starts to disappear earlier and earlier, but if you routinely find yourself on the couch rewatching Gilmore Girls for the umpteenth time, then you might be suffering from the appropriately named SAD.

  • Peeling Back The Pandemic Feels

    Kelsey Hergott |

    Though times are still a bit “unprecedented” (who would’ve ever thought we’d be hearing that word as much as we do today), the world is certainly starting to find its footing back into normalcy. Sure, it feels so refreshing to be able to go places and see people and hug and laugh together again. But that refreshing feeling doesn’t quite cover it all.

  • The top 5 ways to make your habits stick -- for good

    Kelsey Hergott |

    September holds a certain type of nostalgia, doesn’t it? Whether you’re going back to school, sending your little ones off to the bus, or find your commute suddenly crowded with teens who are much cooler than you, there’s something about the September air that brings a sense of hustle and bustle back after the lazy, hazy days of summer.    That’s exactly why September is notoriously known as the number one time of the year when people find it tough to stick with their habits. When life has less priorities, you can always put yourself first. But when reality hits, and the…

  • How to keep hydrated this summer so you H2-GLOW!

    Kelsey Hergott |

    Our bodies are made up of nearly 70% water, so naturally it’s important to maintain a certain level of hydration. Getting in your 10-11 cups of H20 each day is one of the best ways to flush your body of its toxins, keep you feeling energized, reduce hangovers, improve your physical performance, aid in weight loss, keep your skin glowing, and the list just goes on…

  • How to Keep Your Sanity On Social

    Kelsey Hergott |

    Be honest, how many hours a day do you spend mindlessly scrolling through some type of social media? Learning the new TikTok dance (“learning” is a loose term here), browsing DeuxMoi for any celeb sightings near you, taking in how cool 15 year olds look today in comparison to what 15 year old you looked like (truly triggering)... The list goes on and one question remains: is it really so “mindless”?

  • Bring your Workout Outdoors!

    Kelsey Hergott |

    It’s uncharacteristically mild, sunny and bright for the first few months of the year in Canada and bringing your workout outside to experience it can provide lots of different health benefits for your mental and overall well-being. I once read a study that the primary activity that the most people partake in outside is dog walking. However, there are so many great benefits for humans outside too!

  • How to Reset your Motivation

    Kelsey Hergott |

    March is that cold, grey, awkward in-between winter and spring month that makes us want to hibernate on the couch until spring has sprung with the Uber Eats delivery guy as our main source of human contact. It’s a very easy time to break healthy routines and slump back into less positive, less productive and less happy versions of ourselves

  • 28 Days of Self-love and Care

    Kelsey Hergott |

    If you have feelings of being frenzied, stressed, bored or overwhelmed, it’s time to check in on how you’ve been treating yourself. We often attribute these feelings to work, family and other external sources. However, by assessing the inner situation, there’s a chance you might find that you're somewhat responsible for these feelings because you’ve been neglecting yourself.

  • How to Up Your 2021 Mental Health Game

    Kelsey Hergott |

    We typically talk of health and wellness in terms of the physical self. Conversations around weight loss or improved appearance and confidence are the norm. However, your body is only one part of a three part series that makes up you. Mental and spiritual health complete the trilogy.

  • How to Have a Healthy Holiday

    Kelsey Hergott |

    Staying healthy during the holidays is a struggle, even normal at times. Right now, everyone's a little confused about ever-changing COVID-19 regulations or what applies to them and what doesn’t. What seems appropriate in Toronto isn’t the same as Windsor, Barrie, Sudbury or Vancouver. What we all have in common is the desire to be with our loved ones.

  • Strength Training for Women

    Kelsey Hergott |

    Over the last ten years or so, many total misconceptions and flat out nonsense about strength and resistance training have been debunked, especially bad information that targets women. As a result, more women participate than ever. Yet, still lots of women still consider cardio a superior form of exercise or simply don’t make strength training part of their regular routine.

    Kelsey Hergott |

    If your condo gym isn’t reopening anytime soon or you don’t feel comfortable sharing a sweaty public space yet, no sweat.
