3 Ways To Bring Positive Thought To Your Day

Standard

Everyone tells us to think of the positive, to not worry so much, although this is all good advice it can be very complicated- you are stuck in traffic which makes you late for work, you spill coffee all over your best outfit right before a meeting, you’re stressing out about your friends wedding and your mom just told you some bad news…Great, now what? You come home and your negativity becomes infectious, your spouse has great news to tell you but you can’t seem to muster up a smile and give them your full attention. Everyone falls victim to this kind of day, but how do you get out of it? How do you capture the good things in a day and how do you share in the great attitude of others? Here are 3 ways to bring positive thought to your day: Continue reading

A Little Philosophy Never Hurt Anybody

Standard

Good morning everyone, I hope that you’re all doing well today and are enjoying what the day brings you. I, in fact, am just about to begin a morning yoga routine to start my day. Isn’t this just so simple? Like I have said before it’s the little things in life that truly make us happy. The book I am reading ties into this idea, it’s called How Philosophy Can Save Your Life and the basic principles outlined in this book inspire me.¬† Continue reading

So..I Bought a Car

Standard

Do you remember when I talked about empowerment and doing something that you have always wanted to do but have been too afraid to do or ‘didn’t have the time’? Well, never tell yourself this. Case in point, I thought I would never buy a car, I don’t need one, I’m too afraid, it’s too expensive, etc. All of these excuses I would make until I realized this… Continue reading

What Defines Motivation?

Standard

What defines motivation? Is it drive to succeed, appreciation that leads to change, or is it all subjective to an individual? Will you be more motivated to make one choice over the other based on what will make you the most satisfied today, tomorrow or in five years from now?

It’s a hard concept thanks to fear of change, intimidation and failure hanging over our heads. Continue reading

The Ever Changing World of Marketing

Standard

I’m really fascinated with the marketing industry¬†so I recently started reading Can’t Buy Me Like: How Authentic Customer Connections Drive Superior Results By Bob Garfield and Doug Levy,¬†which discuses the shift from companies simply advertising a product to building a relationship with the product and consumer (The Relationship Era). Not only is this book interesting and relevant, it’s pretty funny too (Notice how the title is both a play on of the saying can’t buy me love with the ever so popular ‘like’ button by Facebook..get it. HA).

It’s interesting to see just how much the digital and social world has taken marketing out of the hands of the company and into the consumers’. Continue reading

Yoga Conference & Show 2014

Standard

Good morning and start to the week! In one of my previous blogs I had mentioned the yoga conference and show happening in Toronto the last weekend of March. Well, being a fan of yoga and festivities such as this, I attended the event on Saturday and I was quite happy with it!

As soon as you walk in you are greeted with like-minded individuals who, like myself, enjoy doing yoga. There were Thai massage experts on the floor, people on yoga mats and what seemed like hundreds of vendors selling yoga gear, organic food, essential oils/lotions and tea. It was interesting to see what type of products are meant to awaken you and contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Continue reading
