Sleep zzzzzzz…

Sleep matters. We all require adequate sleep to function well but so many of us are living sleep deprived. Up to 60% of us report that we have trouble sleeping a few nights a week – what secrets do the other 40% know about getting a good night’s rest? Consequences Poor sleep can lead to some pretty big consequences. We know that not getting enough sleep increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and high blood pressure. It can also have psychological effects like depression, inattentiveness, and increased anxiety. Noticing weight gain?  Sleep issues seem to have an effect on the hormones that regulate hunger and slow down that metabolism. Craving carbs in the afternoon and evening? Researchers say that’s the hormones at work. Also, who feels up to exercising when sleep deprived! How many hours of sleep do we need? Our bodies are designed to generally require 7-9 hours of sleep a night. I know, I know, we all know people who swear that they only need 5 hours of sleep … but studies show these people aren’t functioning as well as they would if they slept for at least 7 hours. Good Sleep Practices How can I make sure I’m getting quality sleep? Here are a few tips to help you create a health sleep routine! Stick to a schedule! ( Yes, even on weekends!) Try to go to bed around the same time each night, it’s a myth that you can “catch up” on sleep by sleeping in on Sunday morning… Keep electronics out of the bedroom – the light emitted from phones, tablets and... read more

Tiny Habits

Have you ever started an exercise or healthy eating program feeling enthused and excited only to slide back into your old habits a few days later? You ask yourself why? You feel poorly about your choices, you vow that ‘tomorrow’ you’ll get it right. Unfortunately, tomorrow keeps getting pushed back and pushed back, leaving us feeling trapped in the cycle of wanting change but not knowing really how to start. There has been some excellent research in the last decade about how we can harness our habits to help us make lasting change! One of the easiest strategies to implement into your day is the concept of ‘tiny habits’. Tiny habits as described by BJ Fogg, a Behaviour Scientist at Stanford, are habits that: -you do at least once a day -that take you less than 30 seconds -that require little effort. Fogg provides a template for tiny habits: After I ( trigger), I will ( tiny habit).  It helps to use an anchor of sorts  ( something you do everyday that is routine ) eg. making coffee. So using the coffee anchor your template would look like this: After I make coffee, I will meditate for 30 seconds.   Making coffee, something you do each morning, becomes your trigger, your anchor to practicing daily meditation. Implementing tiny habits can lead to big change. It can act as momentum for other changes in your life. Meditation might lead to you feeling less stressed, which in turn might lead you to eat healthier during the day, which might lead to you taking a walk after dinner.  You can think of these... read more

Spring Cleaning

It’s no wonder why we often think of spring as a time of renewal, all that melting snow, increased daylight hours and warmer temperatures,  all encouraging us to leave the layers and hibernating of winter behind! This spring why not take the opportunity to look at several areas of your own life and make the most of the season! As we start to see the green shoots of new life appear we are also reminded of our own health and wellness. Here in Ontario, we’ll begin to see the wonderful local green produce, stalks of asparagus, bitter greens, and spring onions – all of which is so cleansing and full of micro-nutrients. Browse through the stalls of your local farmer’s market and see what is available in your own area! Add some bitter greens to your smoothie in the morning, roast up some asparagus with garlic, toss some new tender lettuce into your evening salad. Add spring to your plate! Spring offers more than you imagine! Do you feel weighed down after those cold, dark months? Take advantage of the longer days and warmer temperatures, lace up your shoes and take a walk outside. Try a local trail where you can admire the trillium flowers on the forest floor, listen for birdsong, revel in the warmth of the sun – it’s been a long winter with many hours spent inside – you deserve to bath yourself in nature! There is research indicating that spending time outdoors in nature can lower blood pressure and reduce stress hormones. Also, it’s been proven to help boost immunity and improve your mood!
