Every year I get one particularly awful cold. Fever, chills, sore throat, completely congested, the works basically. So of course, this past weekend it hit. It took me many years to realize that popping a bunch of pills and pretending you’re fine will NOT make you magically better. Usually it just makes the unpleasant symptoms linger for even longer. So now, I take extra good care of myself when I’m sick. Aside from the basics, like rest and fluids, I also think it’s important to show yourself so much self love when you’re feeling crummy. Here are a few tips I have to cheer myself up when I’m sick.
In Ontario we have this great holiday called Family Day, which usually means I get a long weekend for my birthday. I’m pretty sure this is why the holiday exists. This Family Day weekend we headed to Mont Tremblant for a weekend of good beer, great food, and a little skiing for good measure.
Happy Thursday everyone! February is one of my favourite months. The winter weather seems less harsh, days are longer, and everything is decked out in Valentine’s Day decorations. I’m pretty indifferent on the holiday itself, but I do love the colour pink and everything love themed. Here are a few of my favourites from this month!
So let’s say you’re a certain age, and you’ve had a your fair share of demeaning jobs, selfish boyfriends, and maybe even a useless degree or two to top it off. What are the chances you haven’t had a quarter life crisis? Maybe crisis is too strong of a word, but I think it’s likely that we’ve all experienced that terrifying “oh my gosh what am I doing with my life” moment at least once. Or if you’re me, at least once a day. That’s what your twenties are for…..right?
There are a few books that have seriously helped to get me through a tough time, or four. So of course I had to share them with you. We’re all in this together, right?
