We all need to hear these simple words: You are accepted—loved and supported and welcomed. The underlying story is that some people still have a harder time finding acceptance than others.

This month I was lucky to interview local mama and registered nurse, Leilani Levesque. A woman who I look up to and who always comes to mind when I am striving to find balance as a mama in my own life. I first met Leilani on a home visit when we first had our son.

The very best reason I can think of for investing time, energy, and money into self-care is that adult mindset and behaviour has a huge influence on the young people nearby. It is difficult to take care of ourselves the way we would like to because the demands of the world outside us never stop screaming. 

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.

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.

So how do we perform a proper bodyweight squat? Here are a few absolutes that must be followed. 

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. 

Our brains tell us lies each and every day.
