Unexpected Adventures

In July, I had finally had enough.

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.

Veterinary Health Care

One of the most difficult aspects in being a pet owner is facing the challenge in our animals not being able to tell us how they’re feeling when they aren’t well. It doesn’t take long for us to feel lost and helpless. Most of us will do just about anything to help them and there is no better way to achieve that than by working with the right veterinarian.

Self-help comes in many formats. A walk in the woods, books, flyers, and websites. In the past few years podcasts have become an integral part of the mental health landscape. Research and evidencebased practice shapes psychological best practice.
