After sharing my time between a cubicle and my home office for years, I’ve learned that what helps me stay positive and vital throughout the day is taking scheduled, non-work related breaks. From exercise to a social call, without these tricks, I may very well go nuts! Here are my favourite go-to vitality tips for the workday: Breakfast dating. Once or twice a week, I meet up with a friend, colleague or my husband for breakfast, before the workday gets rolling. This can be at a coffee shop, brunch place or even the park. Starting the day with your favourite person can help lift your spirits. Dance, dance, dance. Just 10 minutes of busting a move to your favourite music will give you a fun aerobic pick-me-up, plus burn up to 45 calories*! Instead of reaching for coffee at 3 p.m., reach for your iPod and get moving (and yes, I do this!) Mid-day workout. Whether you work in an office or from home, mid-day workouts have benefits—it’s one of my favourite ways to reboot my body, brain and soul. According to experts, mid-day workouts (jogging, yoga or even dancing) can help energize us and also help reduce stress and(…)

If you’re trying to stick to a hearth healthy diet, cooking your own meals is the easiest way to keep track of how much fat, salt and fresh food you’re eating. Having a few essential kitchen tools will equip you for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Essential tools for heart-healthy cooking Sauté Pan: A non-stick sauté pan is like a frying pan, but it has higher, vertical sides and a lid. You can use it for searing fresh salmon or making a veggie stir-fry for the family. You can even braise chicken breasts right on the stove. Steamer basket: Pop your steamer over a pot of boiling water and you’ll not only cook your vegetables quickly, but you’ll maintain their nutrients by steaming them. Hand grater: With a hand grater, you can add flavour to foods helping you resist adding extra sugar, salt or fat. Zest citrus onto fish and use it to add zip to marinades. Grate nutmeg or cinnamon onto hot oatmeal. Sprinkle grated nuts over a salad or into yogurt. By grating your own fresh Parmesan you’ll use less cheese without sacrificing the savoury flavour. Immersion Blender: This is a tall, thin hand blender that stores easily. It’s(…)

Keeping your kids happy, healthy and safe is always at the top of your to-do list every day. Since you can’t control the germs out there, in the real world, it’s nice to know there are a few ways to keep your home, especially your child’s bedroom, as germ-free as possible. Here are a few tips: Wipe down. Use non-toxic cleansers to wipe down toys before and after use. When possible, keep antibacterial products nearby for easy use. Go alternative. For wiping down surfaces, make a simple all-purpose solution by mixing one part vinegar, with one part warm, soapy water. Dip a clean cloth into the solution and start wiping! Tip: mask the scent of vinegar by adding a few drops of essential oil. Have a cleaning schedule. Try scheduling a regular “cleaning day” each week—set aside time for wiping toys, washing sheets and cleaning floors. If your children are old enough, have them be a part of the process. Rely on the spin-cycle when possible. For stuffed animals, read the label and see which ones can hold up to your washer and dryer. This can help save you time. Wipe tiny hands. Be sure your little ones are cleaning(…)
