It’s January and that means many of us are starting off the New Year with the #FernieStreak. What is the Fernie Streak? It’s about setting the goal to do thirty minutes of self-propelled activity outdoors with intention for as many days in January as possible. For all you activity enthusiasts out there, this challenge is going to be right up your alley as we welcome another fun-filled year in Fernie.

Setting goals is one thing, but making a plan to follow through is next level. This is what makes a streak so exceptional. A streak can be partnered with a New Year’s resolution or a word of the year, and make either one more powerful.

Where do we pick up our vitamins, supplements and natural ingredients or products? Here are your picks for 2019.

Gold: 
The Good Earth
Silver:

December is such an action-packed month, whether you are celebrating Hanukkah, Christmas, Winter Solstice, or none of the above. It is so easy to get swept up in the energy of the season and before you know it, find yourself fighting off one virus after another and winding up spending your cherished holidays bundled up in bed instead of enjoying your family and friends. 

Some of us may be travelling near or far while others are staying put, opening their doors to friends and family. Whatever your plans, as the holidays unfold, everything that goes along with them tends to take precedence over our regular fitness routine.

We have all seen the perfect Christmas in the movies. A flawlessly decorated home sets the scene with a perfectly adorned tree. The expectation of the perfect Christmas can leave us feeling lesser than or not quite enough.

Winter is here! Fernie-ites and visitors alike are eager to get outside and shred. On top of hitting the slopes, did you know that Fernie also has five unique xc skiing areas with over 50 km of trails to explore? It’s a great activity for the whole family especially as it is so accessible for new moms and soon-to-be moms. 

Making commitments and then planning actions in the direction and service of those objectives is living with intention. I don’t want life – and especially parenting – to be haphazard. It doesn’t serve the beings we love the most in the world to fly by the seat of our pants as we guide them to adulthood.

The theme for November’s issue of the Fernie Fix is “Intention” and though Taina originally planned on writing an article on the lofty and timely topic of menopause, she decided that this is a great time of year to consider creating a life of intention and purpose. Menopause will always be there, lurking around the corner.
