Meditation Tip #: Pick a Mantra

2013-01-14T21:18:30-05:00 By |Stress|

Meditation is hard.  At least for me.  My overactive mind is so used to jumping on a bouncy castle of cognition that its a struggle to ground and quiet my thoughts.  This is why I find that I need to concentrate on something while practicing meditation.  When I first started my 30 Day Meditation Challenge, [...]

Meditation Update #2: Falling off the Wagon

2013-01-14T21:21:19-05:00 By |Stress|

Is she meditating or just lazing around? Or is it a matter of perception? To any of you who don't know, I'm in the middle of a 30 day meditation challenge.  This challenge has been self-imposed in hopes that I would make a habit of meditating as I have found it so difficult [...]

Meditation Challenge Tip #1: Bring a Buddy

2013-01-14T21:25:58-05:00 By |Stress|

Sometimes the universe works in strange ways to give you exactly what you need.  I recently started my 30 Day Meditation Challenge and it just so happened that CBC radio had a weekend segment on the art of meditation.  May I just say how much I love CBC radio (Ben says its his favorite thing [...]

Ready, Get Set, Meditate!

2013-04-12T10:52:53-04:00 By |Stress|

Me trying to Meditate while in India...and probably getting frustrated. I need to meditate.  Unfortunately, I have the attention span of a bad radio frequency making meditation one of the hardest things for me to do.  The Pitta, Type A in me doesn't have a ton of patience either and this is not [...]

YOU Day: A Reminder for Self-Care

Last Sunday I attended a wonderful event put on by my good friend and soon-to-be Naturopathic Doctor, Winnie Siu.  It was called YOU Day - and its premise was to relax, recharge and remind us to take care of ourselves properly.  Pure + Simple was there doing mini facials for participants and there was a [...]

Japanese Onsen Tour #BathingBeauty

2013-04-12T10:59:08-04:00 By |Stress|

The Japanese taking bathing very seriously.  I've taken my fair of soaks whilst abroad from Moroccan hamams to Korean Bathhouses (love those scrubs), but never have I been somewhere that I could go steam room hopping.  Forget night clubs, the hot spring houses in Kyoto are open until 1am y'all! Known as onsen, almost every [...]

Breathing in Negative Ions in Zhangjiajie

2012-09-22T07:46:48-04:00 By |Stress|

There are few things we must do before we die, and according to me, visiting China`s Zhangjiajie mountains is one of them. I`ve been to the Sahara desert and the Great Coral Reef, but none have made such an impact as Zhangjiajie...truly natural beauty that makes the heart flutter. These dramatic mountains look like something [...]

My Mini Meltdown in Bangkok

2012-08-21T22:51:05-04:00 By |Stress|

Bangkok is a great city. I know people think of it as greasy sex clubs and a flurry of fluorescent lights, but I haven't found it like that at all. Actually, I find it pretty clean for a place that houses 7 million people and its has areas of pristine modernism as well as the [...]
