We have all seen the perfect Christmas in the movies. A flawlessly decorated home sets the scene with a perfectly adorned tree. The expectation of the perfect Christmas can leave us feeling lesser than or not quite enough.

Winter is here! Fernie-ites and visitors alike are eager to get outside and shred. On top of hitting the slopes, did you know that Fernie also has five unique xc skiing areas with over 50 km of trails to explore? It’s a great activity for the whole family especially as it is so accessible for new moms and soon-to-be moms. 

The theme for November’s issue of the Fernie Fix is “Intention” and though Taina originally planned on writing an article on the lofty and timely topic of menopause, she decided that this is a great time of year to consider creating a life of intention and purpose. Menopause will always be there, lurking around the corner.

It can be challenging to not suffer from ski town stress. How can I find balance? Will I have enough time? How can I hit the slopes today as well as the xc ski track while juggling drinks with friends, loading a posse of kids in the car and making sure everyone has BOTH skis, mitts, etc.

When it comes to setting goals or intentions that surround health and wellness, it’s incredibly important to keep them realistic and sustainable. Setting yourself up for success by doing small things each day that bring you closer to the end result, all while enjoying the process it takes to get there.

Being a mamma is tough - all of the expectations to do right by your children and your partner and still chase your dreams, and … well, it’s easy to get lost in it all.

Nestled within the rhythms of the seasons lies a lunar energy pulsing through us and around us at all times. It governs the tides of the oceans and it influences our energy and behaviour. As women we have the ability to work in tandem with this energy.
