The Importance of Exercising Your Mind

The Importance of Exercising Your Mind

‘Health and fitness’ are words that are thrown around everyday and when people are asked how to improve such things they generally think of physical activity and nutrition. There is so much more to health than simply having a good exercise regimen. Studies have shown that exercising your mind is just as important, if not more, in improving your physique and overall well-being.

It is reasonably safe to say that the summer is not great for most of our fitness regimes.

The Benefits of Vitamin D Supplement

The Benefits of Vitamin D Supplement

Vancouverites have all experienced – at one point in time – a lack of motivation and energy that we may have not noticed. You may have experienced it after out 27-day streak of rainy weather that we were so fortunate to suffer from in March. Believe it or not, but you may have been experiencing this low state of energy from the lack of sun exposure and vitamin D! Who knew that the sun could have such a big impact on your physical health?
