The Beauty and Spa team created this wellness page to share information and tips on achieving and maintaining a healthy student writing paper lifestyle.
We know that we are our best selves when we are well rested, mentally centred and emotionally grounded. When we look better, we feel better; it starts from the inside out. Being healthy in all ways, helps us be the best we can be every day.
Being well rested means getting the sleep your body requires, and achieving deep sleep each night. It might mean a new mattress that contours your body, a better pillow, breathing exercises before bed or a new gym workout to ensure you are using up your energy during the day so you can relax and sleep at night.
Being mentally centred might involve yoga, meditation, breathing exercises, a spa treatment or a new gym workout to keep you focused on living healthy. Being emotionally grounded could involve mediation, journaling, counselling, carving out time in your schedule for you alone or reading a book to better understand how we relate to co-workers, family and friends.
It can be tough to find time for you amongst all that you do for family, friends and your job. Taking a grown-up time out at a spa for an hour, afternoon or even a whole day is a great way to get refreshed and re-energized. Sticking to a gym workout schedule, hiring a personal trainer –even if it’s only an introductory lesson or two, going for walks or hikes regularly all contribute to a healthier you; not only physically but mentally and emotionally too.
We will also look at healthy eating; what foods are best for us, pack the most anti-oxidants, most flavour, and the least fat. We will also look for cooking techniques and recipes for busy lives that will still produce healthy meal options in less time.
That’s where we come in. The team here at Canadian Beauty and Spa will find the best in Wellness for you to use at home and away. All the necessities (and a few splurges) to keep you refreshed, rejuvenated and feeling your best. If we can all make time to be our best selves, we can surely handle all that life throws at us in style.
Keep healthy and happy,

The Farmer’s Market concept originated over 200 years ago, but the tradition had declined during the 70’s when shopping malls grew in popularity and convenience was king. Today Farmer’s Markets are popping up all over as more people want whole foods from local sources, with less packaging, processing and preservatives.
There are markets all across Canada in cities of all sizes, check your local chamber of commerce to find one near you. Most outdoor markets are open from May to October, and indoor markets can be open all year round. Pick up everything from fresh eggs, bread, meat, fruit and veggies to flowers or special handmade gifts or crafts. http://www.farmersmarketscanada.ca/
Fall is a favourite time at the market, apples are in season and the fall squash selection is always great.
