Fitness

A regular exercise routine is critical to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  It’s important for individuals to incorporate exercise into their weekly schedule.  For some, you may enjoy personal development athletic activities such as yoga, running, swimming or perhaps you are interested in activities you can do with others, such as golfing, soccer or a variety of team sports.  The key thing is that you maintain activity and movement as part of your routine.  For those who maintain fitness levels, they maintain an overall healthier lifestyle.  This is something I value greatly.  I will be posting a variety of articles and blog posts that address the importance of fitness and health.

Mental Happiness

According to Canadian Mental Health Association, nearly 20% of Canadians will personally experience a mental illness in their lifetime.  Mental illness indirectly affects all Canadians at some time through a family member, friend or colleague. Mental illness affects people of all ages, educational and income levels, and cultures.  Approximately 8% of adults will experience major depression at some time in their lives.  About 1% of Canadians will experience bipolar disorder (or “manic depression”).

These stats are in need of change. People need hope and happiness.  It’s my desire to bring about as much education and information as possible to help people truly discover mental happiness, which will then ultimately affect every aspect of their health and their lifestyles.
