How To Combat Feeling SAD

During the winter months we tend to eat more sleep more and experience more ups and downs during the shorter days. Winter can cause some people to experience weight gain and a lack of energy…

Winter Lifestyle Practices

Winter is the season with the least amount of light, coldest temperatures and very skin drying conditions indoors with furnace heaters etc. Your skin might need more moisture and your body might crave more sleep…

Prime Time IT (Internal Talk)

When you want to achieve optimal fitness success, you need some daily Prime Time to condition your Internal Talk. What I mean by “prime time” is you need mental preparation time to set your intention for the day and insure your internal talk supports your set goals.

How to Handle Stress Better

Giving your body nutritional and supplement support it needs is only part of the solution to be better at handling stress. When you start feeling anxious and stressed out, ask yourself “Am I in imminent danger?”…

Managing Your Mood

We all experience ups and downs as we live through life. How you feel from day to day depends not on the outside factors such as your job or relationships, but on how you perceive them. Truth be told, you have little control…

What would happen if you did what you said you would?

What are the first words that pass your lips in the morning? Are they resentful thoughts about your alarm or words of thanks for the opportunity that greets you with the rising sun? Literally, which side of the bed of life are you waking up on?

When you start each day by acknowledging what is going your way — and recognize how far you’ve come – you’ll see it’s much further than you sometimes think.

Positive Energy = Feeling Good

One of my favourite parts of working for Purica as a territory representative is interacting with the community at events. This past weekend I had the opportunity to go outside of my territory to represent Purica at an event at Woofy’s Pet Foods in Courtenay.

The Willpower to Cure Decision Fatigue

Many people believe they could improve areas of their lives and achieve their dreams of eating right, working out or starting their own businesses…if only they had more willpower.

These people talk about their dreams with excitement but when you fast-forward two months, six months or even a year, often nothing has come of their dreams. Why?

Motivated Mindset

A lot of people associate getting fit with “motivation”. If they’re not “in the mood” to exercise or eat right, then they don’t bother. What would happen if you only washed your dishes or paid your bills when you felt like it?

A life transformed

We are really excited to be participating in a charitable event to support Imagine1day.

To help improve the lives of Ethiopians—through fostering independence of thought and action—Purica has teamed up with Community Farm Store to donate 10% of Purica sales during November and December.

The importance of planning and goal-setting

In Canada it is getting colder this time of year. Nothing we can do about that. It’s part of living in the northern hemisphere.

At this point, most runners have either completed or will do their last organized event…

How to do “The Write Thing”

The truth behind gaining or losing the last five to 10 pounds is found in your nutritional habits. It’s also true that up to 80% of your fitness results are achieved by what you are fueling your body with. So let’s do the write thing!

Start by writing down what, when and how much you put in your mouth.

Habits build your habitat

I’m among those who believe we are what we repeatedly do. When we think about getting fit, being healthier and more energetic, it’s easy to quickly become overwhelmed. You’ll ask yourself, “Geeze, where do I start? How do I begin? What’s my first step?”

How to Thrive in Post-Meditation

During post-meditation, use what you have learned in meditation practice and continue to be mindful of the tendency to flutter in mental distraction.  Increased mindfulness brings increased clarity.  Increased clarity brings increased insight.  With increased insight, we no longer feel mastered by thoughts and emotions.  With continued and confident practice, we can master the ability to rest in the still clear-mind and this unleashes joyful ease and skilful action.

A Friend in Tranquility Meditation

Through tranquility meditation, the reigns of mind, which seize emotions and thoughts, relax.  We realize through insight that we can choose to let go of unskilful thoughts and behaviours.  Tranquility and insight allow us to experience a calm, clear and joyous mind.  This IS the mind of altruism and thriving.  This is a fresh start.

Changing Your Mind

In our modern world, we live so deeply in a limited mindset and it is the source of so many people not being happy, healthy and living a life of ease. In this limited mindset we are consumed with irritation, worry, aggression, and fear – these are habitual unhelpful patterns of conditioned reactivity.
