HOW TO BEAT THOSE WINTER BLUES

Seems like everyone I speak to lately is feeling some sort of winter blues, including myself. It’s been an exceptionally cold and snow-filled winter here in Montreal and I think everyone just had about enough. Admit it, all you really want to do is crawl into a little ball and hibernate until the temperatures are above 10°C. I’ve been trying multiple things to get over those winter blues, and here is what worked for me: 1- Exercise: I know, you’re busy and don’t have time right? When you wake up in the morning, you’re EXHAUSTED, right? Well so am I,…

RESOLUTIONS

It’s that time of the year again where we reflect back on 2017 & we come up with resolutions for 2018. Same thing, different year? I surely hope not!

I came up with a simple conclusion: my goals were always unrealistic and not specific enough. Can someone actually lose 20 lbs in one month and how? Well, I guess if you starve…
