    Finding Your Inner Peace

    Peace. It’s something we all strive to achieve within ourselves and hope for on a global scale. A concept so coveted, the United Nations felt compelled to establish a day of observance in 1981, and years later would go on to dedicate September 21st as the International Day of Peace. It stands for freedom from disturbance, which leaves room for […]

    The True Power Within

    Everything you own, you once said “yes” to, whether you like it now or not. Stop and look around. What do you see? Whatever it is, it was once just a thought – an idea in someone’s mind. Your shoes, that lamp, or your outfit were all designed through a combination of ideas, thought out to create that exact product. […]

    Pieces of a Greater Wholeheartedness

    With us living in a world of extremes these days, I believe a timely shift in our collective way of thinking is in order; collective being the operative word.

These days seem to be a little less lavish and a lot more straightforward. Here is a look at a few of the evolved trends and why they might be even better! Eating Healthy Many people are […]

    Summer Safety

    It’s almost summer and if you’re anything like me that means you’re spending as much time outdoors as possible. A little sunshine on your shoulders and vitamin D sounds great, but before you get out there, let’s take a look at some sun info, shall we? The sun is an over 4.5 billion-year-old star that provides energy, light, and heat […]

    Re-Wilding the Planet

    Growing up over the last 40 years, David Attenborough’s unmistakable and mellifluous voice was the narrated soundtrack to my budding environmentalism, and how I came to be nicknamed Granola. Over his extraordinary 94-year lifespan, he quite literally became the voice of planet earth and his most recent witness statement, A Life on Our Planet sends an urgent message of both […]

A Year in Review

It seems like the perfect time to say, “We did it!” It’s been roughly one year since the shutdown for most parts of North America. But really when you think about it, what have we done this past year? Though we’ve all been “in this together” each persons experience has been totally unique to them. Here’s a look at the […]

Keeping It Real

Why is it that no matter how great things are, we can still get sidetracked by negativity? There’s not a single one of us who can claim we’re happy 100% of the time, so honestly, why is it easier for us to believe the self-doubts, to get caught up in the gossiping, or to hang onto past hurts?
