It can be challenging to not suffer from ski town stress. How can I find balance? Will I have enough time? How can I hit the slopes today as well as the xc ski track while juggling drinks with friends, loading a posse of kids in the car and making sure everyone has BOTH skis, mitts, etc.

The sight of snow falling is something that I will never get sick of, especially in the Fall. Excitement in the air. The countdown to Fernie Alpine Resort opening has begun. The town is filling with new people, and we’re gearing up for a winter of fun.

Inclusive care is certainly an important issue in maternity care as we see that people who belong to marginalized communities have poorer outcomes but it is important in all aspects of medicine. 

A sweater is my whole fall mood, for the love of all things layered and cozy. Right now is, without a doubt, the PERFECT time to wear a big cozy sweater, and that's what you will find me in most days. I just counted, and I currently have no less than 26 hanging up. My sweater obsession started about five years ago, and I am happy to say that it is still going strong. In fact, I just picked up my new favourite yesterday at Commit.

When you live in a town full of non-stop adventure and activity ten months out of the year, it often feels weird to take a ‘break’ during the shoulder seasons.

When you hear the words core strength, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? For many of us, it’s a well defined six pack. While this outer layer is involved, there is much more to it.

September marks the creeping of crisp mornings and blissfully warm afternoons, the turning of trees and fragrant smell of decaying leaves are a few of my favourite characteristics of autumn. These elements are nostalgic.

Most people who have been around pregnancy and birth are familiar with the concept of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders but only know of them as something called “Postpartum” and conventionally only consider postpartum depression in that category.

It’s early August, you’ve got your ticket, tricked your work mate into agreeing to switch shifts with you, and you’re ready to party. What will you wear?
