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. 

The East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s (EKFH) “Beneath the Surface” campaign just got a significant boost with a $20,000 grant from the RDEK Electoral Area A Discretionary Grant in Aid account.

The campaign’s goal is to raise $300,000 to bring a brand new ultrasound service to the Elk Valley Hospital, including a state of the art ultrasound machine, renovations to the room, and all of the accessories to run the service. 

Our brains tell us lies each and every day.

Hey Elk Valley!
Do you want ultrasound services at the Elk Valley Hospital? Your friendly mountain bike club (us....the FMBC) has put together a physically distanced, COVID19 friendly fundraiser that will assist in raising funds for the installation of a new Ultrasound Service at the Elk Valley Hospital. The route is approximately 74km and it will be hard push for most of us. If you compare this to traveling on icy roads in February for a necessary ultrasound....this will be a walk in the park!

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. 

We are spoiled by so many great places to get on the water, some days it’s hard to choose where to go. If you have a dog who insists on joining every adventure, try stand-up paddle boarding together! It’s easier than it looks and here are some helpful tips.

To me, the idea of a revival or being “revived” translates to bringing yourself back to life. It has been so wonderful seeing this revival happening around us as businesses start to open, people venture out of their homes, and we begin to see and spend time with the people we love.
