What Really Matters...

There can be beauty and simplicity in the space that opens up when some of our things are taken away from us. Perhaps our expectations naturally recede and we can now more clearly see what really matters. And perhaps with time, it is those things that will fill the space.

Let's rename "Hump Day" "Jump Day." Rather than thinking about getting over or through the day, let's jump into it, on it, over it, and get 'er done! We've got some great insights, moves, and bites to ensure this Wednesday is a great one.

None of us have experienced this before. So not one of us is an expert on what to do. We are all fumbling and failing. And then, occasionally, finding pure joy in moments we failed to see or experience before, and more often discovering talents and strengths we had either forgotten or never had.

Monday...Already?

So, it turns out I’m terrible at home schooling my children. It’s no real surprise, as being a great teacher requires a degree, incredible patience, and very specific sorts of intuition, creativity, expertise, and wisdom. That said, being terrible at something you are trying to do to help those you love is a horrible feeling. Which got me thinking: While I’m not an elementary school teacher, I need to help my kids, and so, what do I need to do better so I can feel better about the whole thing?

Keeping Busy...

It’s been another long week of self-isolating. Have you been spending more time hunched over your laptop trying to work from home in a less than ideal workspace? Are you itching to get your golf clubs out and enjoy this beautiful spring weather? This week’s Healthy View Blog has some tips, suggestions, and information that might help make your week at home just a little bit more enjoyable.

Saturday is Here Again

Good news - you've made it through another week! It may have been crazy. You may not have gotten everything done that you wanted to. But you know what? That's okay. Sleep a little longer. Make time for a run. Enjoy some comfort food. Whatever you need to do, do it!

TGIF: The Weekend Starts Tomorrow

TGIF! The weekend starts tomorrow. Plan a few things to look forward to. How about a feel good project? The boys and I are making a huge batch of chocolate chip cookies and dropping them off at friends' houses around the neighbourhood. Spoil yourself and those you love with something decadent. Bubble bath? Expensive bottle of wine? Purchase an awesome movie through Cineplex? Have an over the top dinner - candles and all.

It's Thursday...Already?!?

It’s Thursday already?  It’s APRIL already? Despite the sort of (?) slower pace, the days are still flying by at alarming speed. On the days when I don’t specifically set aside time to exercise/move it isn’t happening. A dedicated window in the morning with a specific task works best for me. I recommend you find what works for you. Schedule it in. And make it happen. Daily. You can be flexible on the start and finish time – for example plan to do your mobility and stability workout from 9:00 - 9:45am. If you end up only having time to do 20 minutes, so be it. Just GET IT IN!

How are you holding up? Are you prioritizing your self-care? Have you made time to regularly connect with friends and loved ones? I challenge you to do something for yourself today - even if it's just taking a few minutes to meditate, 10 minutes to get a circuit in, or spending some quiet time in the kitchen preparing dinner. It's a start.

Cheers to the Weekend!

It IS the weekend. Schedules are really helpful these days. But not so much today. Today, make sure it FEELS like the weekend. Indulge a little. Play a lot. Take a break from the serious news and dive into some positive media. Curl up and watch a movie or read a book in the middle of the day... And...if you feel the need to be productive, surprise and delight someone you love. Write a love letter... start a dance party in the kitchen... make breakfast in bed... give a foot massage...

We've just completed week one of this Series. And I so hope some of you are finding the content helpful and inspiring. For me, I am loving creating and collating these posts. I REALLY miss coming into the Clubs and am so missing the opportunity to physically connect with all of you. This is helping me feel like we can still make at least a small positive difference in a few lives. So, I'm extremely grateful for this space.

This One's For You

Have you noticed an increase in runners out on the roads in your neighbourhood? Maybe it's because of Club closures across the city. Maybe it's just the start of the spring weather. Whatever the reason, if you're an avid runner, cyclist, stepmiller, or power walker, today's workout is for you!

For many of us, we're into our second week of isolation. That means more time at home with the family, increased stress, and maybe even fewer workouts. There is no better time to shake those bad habits and get yourself back on track.
