Healthy Habits

It is time for an honest check in on how we are really doing. Stress levels are high, exhaustion levels are up, and patience seems to be waning. COVID-19 is a motivating factor for some of us to increase our healthy lifestyles and overall wellness. It has for others become a bit of a crutch and excuse for avoiding healthy choices. An example of this is thinking that it’s okay to eat junk food, drink beer, and lay on the couch watching Netflix all day because of restrictions.

Best Patience in Fernie?

To Kate, the Best of Fernie includes exploring the endless trail networks at various speeds; being inspired to push her own physical boundaries by a wonderfully active and motivated community. It’s also been on her mind recently, however, that these things can be a double-edged sword.

Unexpected Adventures

In July, I had finally had enough. I was no longer happy beating up my body with hill repeats, maximal start intervals and tempo efforts with no fixed or tangible goal in sight. I finally put aside any aims at competition for the rest of the season and sought joy and adventure in my own backyard instead, nervously embracing the freedom and spontaneity of a clear horizon.

Knowing Versus Living

Most of us can easily list off all the things we need to do in order to take care of ourselves, but are we really doing it? Is the holistic in nature? In my experience we tend to be very good at knowing what to do and struggle with the actual living it part.

The Seeds of Kindness

There is an old proverb that says, ‘you reap what you sow.” These words imply that the actions we take today greatly impact our behaviours and interactions in the future. In our community we could use these words to cultivate kindness and gratitude in order to improve our quality of life and increase our connection to others.

Pumpkin Pie Dog Treats

Like a lot of us, fall is a favourite time of year for most dogs. The days are cooler to adventure outdoors and it leaves them feeling like they can go all day. While we all indulge in the season of pumpkin spice and everything nice, why not share some of those yummy goodies with your best pal?

Pistol Squat Progression

Living in a mountain town, quad dominance is a common trend and is a subject I think we need to bring some light to. By balancing out our strengths and utilizing the entire body, we are setting ourselves up for success and ensuring that we can continue to do the things we love.
