Three grueling days and, in the end, I finally have the ideal place to nap outside this summer. My husband and I have lived in our house for two years and for two years we’ve said that we’re going to...

In a previous life, I worked with swimsuit models on photo shoots and always wondered how those women always seemed to look effortless in waterproof spandex. And then, one day, I just asked them. The secret? Eat well, stay active. It wasn’t crazy dieting, excessive exercise or simply genetics that made these women look good in swimsuits. In fact, they were healthy sizes, various shapes and from various ethnic backgrounds. But the two things they all had in common were that they 1. tried to avoid foods that bloated 2. stayed active to help keep up the physiques they had worked so hard on all year. So how does model advice...

It’s amazing the way I’ve come to worry about my parents. I find myself having conversations with them like, “Dad, are you taking any vitamins?” or “Mom, have you thought about trying yoga?”. My dad turned 60 this year and I just can’t help but think about him aging—since that’s inevitable, I guess the thing is to help him age healthfully. And since a healthy heart is the foundation of the good overall health, I decided to put together a checklist of six healthy habits that can be used at any age. I hope it helps ease those “are you taking your vitamins” conversations you have with your own parents...

Allergies attack when our body’s natural defense system becomes unusually sensitive and overreacts to typically harmless things, like pollen, molds, dust, food or pet dander. We seem to be genetically pre-disposed to our allergies but it’s still quite a mystery why people develop them. Allergies commonly appear when we’re young, but they can also develop later in life and suddenly at times. Although there is no “cure” for allergies, there are things we can do to help manage the way we feel, like treating and controlling symptoms caused by allergies. Here are a few tips to help you “environmentally manage” your allergies: Pet-related allergies: one study explains that those who own a cat...
Smart Phone
I don’t even want to think about what’s living on my iPhone these days—between the number of times I drop it, lose it in my purse and spill food on it, oh my… Other than giving my cell a wipe-down with a napkin or damp cloth now and then, there’s not much I do to keep my gadget free of bacteria. I’d imagine it’s probably something most of us take for granted. It’s a fact that germs can (and do) live on our most-used surfaces: cellphones, MP3 players, heart monitors, home phones, watches—these things are part of our daily lives and yet, we probably don’t spend much time thinking about...
Cleaning
It’s a time we look forward to, when things begin to feel fresh and light again, after a long, cold winter. It’s spring again, and soon you’ll start thinking about a little spring cleaning. Here are 10 tips to get your home spring-ready: Have carpets cleaned. There are many environmentally-safe options on the market today, so shop around.  Give towels, sheets, pillow cases and blankets a wash, but be sure to leave a set out for use! Get your broom out and sweep under furniture when possible, especially those areas rarely given attention.  Give windows a cleaning. Use your garden hose for hard to reach spots on the outer windows...

Actor Eric Bernier immediately associates the word vitality with a day at the spa. He even jokes that the spa he frequents in Montreal was custom-built for him. “I’m a bit of a vampire. I like closed spaces, I need dim lighting to relax.” He can easily be broken out of this zen state with a bad soundtrack. “Sometimes I just lose it. When the music is too generic, put on specifically to help me relax, I can’t stand it!” Besides this inconvenience, the spa is still at the top of his list of places to go to reenergize. “Putting my body through extremes of hot and cold, it fires...
