On October 31, 2020, Calvin Domin, a long-time Elk Valley resident proudly raising his family in the Elk Valley, is running approximately 175km for Youth Mental Health. "In my spare-time I train for and run ultramarathons of varying distances," Calvin said, utilizing something he is passionate about in the support of youth in the Valley.

So how do we perform a proper bodyweight squat? Here are a few absolutes that must be followed. 

There is an old proverb that says, ‘you reap what you sow.” These words imply that the actions we take today greatly impact our behaviours and interactions in the future. In our community we could use these words to cultivate kindness and gratitude in order to improve our quality of life and increase our connection to others. 

Like a lot of us, fall is a favourite time of year for most dogs. The days are cooler to adventure outdoors and it leaves them feeling like they can go all day. While we all indulge in the season of pumpkin spice and everything nice, why not share some of those yummy goodies with your best pal?

Living in a mountain town, quad dominance is a common trend and is a subject I think we need to bring some light to. By balancing out our strengths and utilizing the entire body, we are setting ourselves up for success and ensuring that we can continue to do the things we love.

In our culture there is so much emphasis placed on preparing for pregnancy and even for labour and delivery and perhaps not enough on preparing for parenthood. There is so much self-doubt and so many questions that need answering so where do you turn for advice?

It doesn’t take long for us to feel lost and helpless. Most of us will do just about anything to help them and there is no better way to achieve that than by working with the right veterinarian. 

Self-help comes in many formats. A walk in the woods, books, flyers, and websites. In the past few years podcasts have become an integral part of the mental health landscape. Research and evidencebased practice shapes psychological best practice.
