    content creation #1

    Finding my community… It can be difficult to keep up with posting content on here, when you feel like literally no one is listening. However, I understand that my website is very new, and it takes time to build things that are meaningful and authentic. It is important for me to consider how I can reach out to my targeted audience. I imagine that my audience is filled with individuals who are passionate about self-care, and focussing on wellness. I also want to reach individuals who may be thinking about starting their wellness journey, but don’t know where to start. I have been thinking about starting a monthly newsletter that…

    am I turning into a yogi?

    I can’t believe I am admitting this, but I really like yoga. Now, this has not always been the case. As someone with a mind that never seems to turn off, I was never able to fully experience the benefits of practicing yoga. However, things have changed. As you can see from some of my other blog posts, the pandemic has introduced many different things into my life. One of them being a new love for yoga. Like I mentioned before, I never liked yoga. When I had the time to do a workout, I would never even think of doing a yoga class. I love doing strength and cardio…

    5 accounts I love right now

    I thought I would share some of the Instagram accounts that I have enjoyed adding to my feed. These accounts keep me motivated, inspired, and feeling good about myself 🙂  @samiclarke Sami Clarke is a fitness/wellness influencer that I follow on both Instagram and YouTube. Basically, she is the reason I was able to create a workout routine that works for me. I have always struggled with being consistent with my exercise routines, and Sami Clarke’s content is extremely motivating, and attainable. Many of Sami’s videos are no longer than 30 minutes, which allows me to get a quick workout done before class in the morning. I also appreciate that…

    peer review #2

    For our second round of peer reviews, I was assigned Savannah Swatske’s blog. As seen on the homepage, Savannah’s blog is focussed on lifestyle, travel, health & wellness.  I appreciate the way in which Savannah has designed her blog. The colours that are utilized pair well with each other, and everything is organized in a way that makes sense, and is easy to navigate. I also like how her recent blog posts are available to view on the homepage.  Savannah’s about me page provides a great introduction into who she is as a person, and what she is interested in. She also shares her aspirations/reasons for creating the blog.  Since…

    start your day right

    Let’s talk about establishing a meaningful structure for your morning.  I have recently experienced the benefits of implementing some sort of structure into my mornings. I used to rush through my mornings, eager to begin the many tasks and obligations I had on my plate. However, with the current situation of the pandemic, and spending most of my time at home, enjoying my mornings have become an integral part of how I start my day. When I talk about implementing a morning routine, I don’t mean something completely unrealistic. Trust me, I am not here to tell you that I wake up super early, drink a litre of water, get…

    1 nice thing a day

    I recently started following Tara Schuster, who wrote one of my absolute favorite books, Buy Yourself The F*cking Lilies, (this book will be discussed in an upcoming post). She posted a challenge on Instagram that instantly had me hooked. I find that so many Instagram challenges are incredibly unattainable (do 100 squats every single day? no thanks), and this challenge by Schuster is something you will actually want to do.  This challenge asks you to do 1 nice thing a day for yourself in February. Now, you don’t need to go and buy yourself a new outfit, or get a manicure, it could be something as simple as vacuuming your…

    let’s make a snack

    Something that I have loved doing during quarantine/the COVID-19 pandemic, is cooking and baking. I wanted to find something to do when I have a break in between online classes, or when I am doing homework, that didn’t involve more screen time. So, I decided that I would go on Pinterest and get inspired to create something. Not only am I able to better my skills, but I find it to be such a relaxing activity for myself. When I’m cooking, I’m not thinking about the many things on my to-do list, or worrying about getting my assignments finished. I am completely in the zone, almost in a sort of…

    peer review #1

    This week I was tasked with conducting my first peer review for my course, pub 201. I was assigned Keely Rammage-Scott’s website. Keely has created a professional portfolio. When I first entered the website, I appreciated how minimalistic and simple she has formatted everything. The menu/navigation bar is easy to utilize. The homepage includes an image of Keely playing a guitar, with her mission statement. Right away, I can see what Keely’s portfolio will entail. I proceeded to search through her website. On the About page, Keely provides a biography about herself. I think this is especially important for professional portfolios, as I can see how passionate Keely is about…

    starting simple

    First, I just wanted to say how amazing it is that you have decided to cater to your own needs. We are constantly conditioned to believe that people who have crazy schedules, who overwork themselves, who don’t get enough sleep, who skip meals, are superheroes with amazing work ethics. And I am here to tell you they are not. To be the absolute best version of yourself, you need to pay attention to, and take care of your well-being. Our emotions and actions are so dependent on how we are feeling. Therefore, it is important to concentrate on wellness. Wellness is not just making sure you are taking care of…
