If you are struggling to lose weight and / or adopt a healthier lifestyle, you may be inadvertently sabotaging your efforts by making "unhealthy health choices." These less obvious culprits -- what I call "unhealthy health food" -- tend to slide under the radar and inadvertently sabotage progress.
Like so many other people inspired by Emma Watson's impassioned speech in her new capacity as UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, I shared it to Facebook. Like so many other posts on Facebook and elsewhere calling for attention to women's rights, it almost immediately received a comment from someone who took umbrage with the message.
In honor of Organic Week, I think it's only natural to write a blog post on the importance of organic seed.
When most people hear the word "organic," they tend to think about food and environment, but organic seeds are a large part of those things too.
One of the best parts of getting older is the freedom found in letting go of habits that used to hedge me in because of what I thought other people expected of me, only to discover that many of these expectations either aren't real or don't matter.
The fact is that for such a 'religious' person, what they determine to be ethical comes from a system that may be totally independent from other systems. This can make dialogue effectively impossible for there is no point of connection. What these people accept as right or wrong is solely what the 'deity' in which they believe defines as right or wrong.
If physical age shouldn't be utilized as a filter, then what should companies be looking for when assessing a candidate's cultural fit? Companies should be looking at whether or not individuals have the right mental characteristics that match the company's culture
Canada must begin to understand the merits of a liberal arts education. In the innovation economy, we will need dreamers, inventors, and scholars to lead our nation forward -- people who think unconventionally, across disciplines, and beyond a single skill set.
If you are planning to move after you retire, put some careful consideration into the cost of living for that area. Look into the cost of real estate and see how far your money will stretch if you downsize from your current home. If you're moving to a different town or province, it's also worth looking into potential tax advantages for senior citizens in that area.
I cannot speak from a man's perspective, but I can absolutely appreciate why a woman is reluctant to journey down the pregnancy path while holding a toddler on her hip.
Let's face it: we all like buying things. What we don't like is spending our hard-earned cash, especially when whatever it is we desire beyond our financial capability. What's not obvious, however, is figuring out what you can save on.
As I creep ever closer to death and settle in to my old age (23 is the new 83!) I've made a couple of realizations about myself and how I'm gonna get out there and put my stamp on the world. So allow me to impart upon you my sage wisdom that I've accumulated in my whole, like, 16 months as a human adult lady.
Married sex is the red-headed stepchild of the booty world -- at least, according to TV and movies. In that world, married sex is played for laughs, whereas all the other kinds of sex -- casual sex, new sex, cheating sex, ex sex -- get the sultry soundtrack and rumpled sheets.
If your child leaving creates a hole in your life, you must find new and healthy ways to fill it. The empty nest often means that you have to adjust to living alone with your partner again, which you haven't done for 18 years. It's very common for old tensions or arguments to resurface and explode, so it's important to make a real effort to connect with them again.
Every year, the World Health Organization (WHO) celebrates October 10 as World Mental Health Day to raise awareness. This year, they are focusing on schizophrenia. To add my little bit to awareness, I would like to explore the history and the controversy of this malady.
People often have doormen and nannies accept packages on their behalf. When it's a tiny little box that's easy to return this is no problem. Furniture packaging is big and bulky and the return process is nothing short of a nightmare. Unless you are paying a design professional to receive your package for you, be sure YOU are physically present for the delivery appointment.
When most 20-somethings have dating questions, they call a single friend. A few might call their moms. But what if your "person" is a 60 guy who also happens to be your dad?
Even though I'm gay, even though so many of our friends are, even though we would love her always, no matter what, I still sometimes hope my daughter is straight.
My hope is that even if you don't hear me now, you will already know how I feel about everything from condoms to college. Your dad and I are pretty open about that stuff. Sorry we're not sorry.
I hate to age myself, but I went to school for my nutrition degree more than a few years ago. Things have changed since then, and while my practice has changed, we still see some of these gems being recommended to this day. Here's where we got it wrong all those years ago.
