To Drink or not to drink, that is the question

Posted by | Self-Improvement | No Comments

Should you quit drinking?

 

We all love drinking to some degree. It seems it is an integral part of our lives in the culture we live in. It is firmly enmeshed in our lives in some way or another. Alcohol to celebrate, the “God I need a drink days” and the summer day cold beer is an absolute must. All of our movies, TV, books, stories we share with friends, stories our parents told us, we all have alcohol stories. But is it necessary in our lives and just how much damage does alcohol do? Is it worth it? Would we be able to have as much fun without it? With it? Let’s have a look at our lives and see; should we give up drinking? Read More

Sweet, fizzy crush

Posted by | Relationship Advice | No Comments

When is it love, infatuation or a crush?

‘The difference between like, love and in love, is the same difference between; for now, for a while and forever”

 

Ah the multi-faceted, many headed monster we call love. There are so many ways to feel and so few clues to help us understand that heady, light-headed, heart-pounding feeling we get when we are with that certain someone.  Often we get feelings for people we really don’t know at all. For example; teachers, bosses, celebrities, people who we see in a certain way and often our feelings are our own projections as to who and what they are. Read More

DST-Just what is it and why does it mess up my life?

Posted by | Self-Improvement | No Comments

Spring forward and Fall back. That’s how I always remember which is which. That joyful time in the fall when, if at the pub or the club, you get an extra hour before last call…and on the converse side that dammit moment when you realize you get one less hour of fun that night!  Not to mention having to catch up on sleep somehow and being late for everything for a week or so and that weird feeling that it is either too light out or too dark out.

Movie Magic

Posted by | Dating Tips | No Comments

 

With the 88th Oscars now behind us, I got thinking about why we love movies so much and why they are so great for date night. I am a big fan of the Academy Awards, always have been. It’s a great chance to see movie actors outside of a role, I love hearing what they say in their speeches, I cry with them, I laugh with them, I envy them and I even pity them, because living your life in the public eye is not easy. Of course most of us would gladly trade places with them, but if I had my picture taken every time I did something silly, dumb or embarrassing….well, let’s just say there’d be a lot of pictures.

I mean A LOT, like enough to wallpaper everyone’s house in my city. Read More

Grab February by the…er..blahs!

Posted by | Self-Improvement | No Comments

Now that Valentine’s Day is over, however do we get through the rest of this miserable month? We’ve gone through our self-assessment, house-cleaning, wardrobe inspection and still we have the rest of February to deal with. Now is a good time to find some local activities to get involved with. We had a wonderful snowshoe hike through one of our local popular nature trails and it was just wonderful! Sure the cold air seared our lungs but laughing with others as we figured out how to navigate the terrain with ungainly snowshoes was hilarious and challenging, as well as giving us a much needed cardio workout.

V-Day-make it special not ‘spensive

Posted by | Relationship Advice | No Comments

 
If you’re like me, then you don’t want to do the same old lame-ass Valentine’s Day as everyone else. But, you also don’t want to break the bank. Myself I prefer fun over romantic. In fact to me a great relationship is one in which I feel close to the person and comfortable. Is it me or does a too romantic situation feel almost uncomfortable? Like giggle-worthy? Read More

Beat the Winter Blahs!

Posted by | Dating Tips, Phone Chat Lines | No Comments

If you are like most of us, Winter is tough to get through. After the holidays are over we can be a bit down, either from the excitement being over or from the bills being a bit high, or both. We tend to feel less energy, less motivation and we also tend to put on a few pounds. Let’s face it, it would be easy to ride that wave  and get deeper in the funk…OR… we can grab the bull by the horns, or as I like to say the bush by the thorns (I prefer not to involve innocent bulls in my clichés!).
After all we are entitled to delve in the dark a bit. In fact it can be very good for us. Somewhat cathartic yes, though I do think cathartic is over-used and oft misunderstood these days. I would prefer to say, restful. Staying up, excited, optimistic, enthusiastic, staying slim and fit, all these things take a lot of energy to maintain and it is very healing and comforting to just let it go sometimes. Just not for too long. Habits get formed in 6 weeks and we don’t want to carve a new and bad habit into the face of our lives.
Indulge yourself in a few weeks of eating avocados and almonds and maybe a bag of chips or two, snuggle with your sweaters and your favourite books, video games or do a tv show binge….THEN…get back into life!
Don’t start with a four hour marathon through the snow though. Start with a good winter cleaning. I prefer to get my house and life organized in Winter. Go through your clothes, your books, your old broken cell phones, all the clutter that is dragging you down. Now you are ready for some fresh new clothes to kick-start the fresh new you who is on the way!
Work on the kitchen. Get rid of the bad for you, indulgent foods and focus on your energy foods. Light leafy greens, nutrient dense root veggies, hearty grains and some sweet fresh fruits are all great for boosting your energy and mood. Clean that fridge and put in a fresh box of baking soda.
Get your bills and finances in order. Make a budget and make plans to pay off your debt in a reasonable amount of time without stressing yourself.
I’m a big believer in the mind body connection and seeing things fresh and clean and organized around you affects how you feel about yourself.
Work on a light and fun exercise regime. Join a class, yoga, play volleyball or join a gym but make (and keep!) small commitments to yourself. If you go 2-3 times a week for a cardio workout then stick with it you will be doing great!
Make a resolution-buddy to help you stick with your small, easily attainable resolutions. This is where QuestChat can be really fun and helpful too. Finding a friend or maybe even potential lover to share your struggles and successes with can bring you even closer than if you met when you were at your peak!
Good luck with your love, life and resolutions and remember Valentines Day is coming soon and you want to be ready for your much-deserved day of love!

Man breaking up with girlfriend

Breaking up is hard to do

Posted by | Relationship Advice | No Comments

Well kiddies it’s 2016 and we have a fresh new year to make our lives better.

This is actually my favourite time of year. Though I do hate the weather, but it can be somewhat helpful to have the snow and blow outside because it gives us a chance to be introspective. There’s nothing like taking time to take inventory of our lives. Read More

Best Holiday gifts for 2015

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Ack! and the rush is on. It is hard to find the peace on earth feeling when things in our current holiday social mood are so superficial. It’s seems it’s not a great holiday season without the latest gadget that racks up our credit card debt. Fear not, here are the top gifts for men and women this year that won’t break the bank. If an engagement ring is either on your buy or want list, think again. Christmas is not the best time to propose.  Keep proposals a separate and special moment. If the woman in your life is, or you yourself are, expecting a ring, don’t do it. It puts a lot of pressure on the asker and sets the’ askee’ up for disappointment. Be sure not to ask or imply that this Christmas is the time for engagement, leave that up to the asker and hen you have TWO special occasions to celebrate every year!
