Healthy tips

Don’t drink your calories – be careful with calorie rich drinks like pop, sweetened teas, juice and specialty drinks. It is really easy to consume large amounts of calories and still feel hungry.

  • More than ever it can be hard to balance the demands of your worklife with the commitments and interests of your personal life. If your balance is off there will be a ripple effect through all areas of your life.  The Canadian Mental Health Association has a free, online quiz that you can take to see how balanced you are. Along with the quiz there are also a number of free resources to help you find your best balance.
  • Changing your behaviours is tough. Whether you are trying to eat healthier, be more active or get more sleep, changing our behaviours is tough. When we track what we are doing and reflect on what worked well, what didn't work so well, we are much more likely to be successful with the behaviour change that we are working on.  Here is a fantastic tracking tool from ParticipACTION that you can download and use right away to help keep yourself moving forward toward your goals.
  • It can be hard to find recipes to make when you have family members (or friends) with various food sensitivities or food preferences. This recipe satisfies the gluten free, dairy free, whole food crowd.
