Live It Active: The Blog

This blog, like many, has evolved considerably in its 7+ years of existence. It started out solely as a physical activity guide with some mention of food and nutrition. Today, it delves into many topics that affect our health – parenting, mental illness, the workplace, chronic disease, spiritual and emotional well-being, and our social interactions.

Physical activity is still an important feature of this blog and will continue to be, but my view on wellness is much more holistic and thus, my blog is reflective of this.

Human beings need physical, emotional, and psychological health in order to find any semblance of balance (well, at least I do). In addition to this being a regular blog, I also started my Live It Active, the business in 2011. Live It Active is a health and wellness consultancy in Calgary, AB that offers a range of services from workplace education sessions on mental health, resiliency and grit to rejuvenating retreats in the Rocky Mountains.

  1. Thanks for making this blog – I found it because I am in my third month of exercise and I find it difficult to find the motivation to get to the gym, or to ride horses, or to go dancing (my forms of exercise). I like your thoughtful posts – it helped me get down to the gym today!

    1. I am so glad that you have found the blog helpful! Best of luck with your new exercise regime. The most important thing is to find something you absolutely love doing and from your comment it seems you have done just that!
