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. Unfortunately access to peer reviewed articles is limited outside of academia, and to be honest working your way through methodology and statistics in these articles can be quite tiresome. The joy of podcasts is that they often find a clever mix of researcher interviews, personal story, and fun antidotes from the host.

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. 

The last few months have been unprecedented for all of us and while it has been a time of great uncertainty, fear, and for many, loss, it has also presented us all with opportunity. Opportunity to examine our lives and really consider the possibility for change.

Attempting to do most of my physical activity outdoors becomes rather easy with help of great weather and warm temperatures. Fitness friends and I often use the term ‘Sun’s Out, Guns Out’ when planning workouts during the summer months and find the term incredibly fitting as they often entail short bursts of high intensity work combined with slower strength focused movements. 

We do not develop six packs or becomes a marathon runners without sore muscles along the way. Similarly, we cannot gain strength in our mental health without processing pain, sadness, and uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. The past few months of 2020 have certainly prompted discomfort as we learned to live in new ways and sat with our thoughts and feelings about the world and the humans who inhabit it.

June seems like a nice month for a challenge. How does completing 100 reps of different movements each day throughout the month sound?

Having lived in Fernie for the past 23 years with his wife and four children, Todd got into health care to help others, especially those less fortunate. He had some of my own misfortune with injuries so was exposed to it early on, which created a real desire to pursue it.

You read that right, the courage to be ordinary. Not the strongest, fastest, smartest, prettiest, or best. Ordinary and good enough.

This is a distinctive time in all of our lives. Very few people alive today have lived through a global pandemic before now, and certainly none of the currently pregnant or newly pregnant people have. We are all navigating this together and for the very first time so we don’t know whether or not there is a “right” or “best” way to do it and if there is, what that might be.
