Okay, I’m still having to stop and think when I need to write the date… 2015. 2015. So the fact that January is already in the rear-vision mirror means I really better get a handle on that.
In case it flew by for you, too, here’s what you might have missed on the Wellness Almanac this month.
New Year’s resolutions? We offered a few ideas – kick sugar. Drink more water. Read a book that nudges you out of your comfort zone. If you think you have a problem, ask for help. Most of all, keep it fun.
It’s never too late to get rid of the TV, make a change or take up a new wellness habit – the 87 year old marathon runner who started running at 55 is cause for optimism. As are locals who tried 50 days of water-drinking or bike-riding or ticking off the to-do list, as their path.
From the new ReUse It centre to the downtown barn, Pemberton is starting to explore social enterprise – non profit businesses that plough their earnings back into the community, which means the kinder we are, the stronger and richer we are.
It’s also remarkable habitat, with 348 species (of fungi, plants, frogs, fish, dragonflies and other critters), 66 bald eagles amongst 1988 birds, were counted in various Birdcounts and Bioblitz events. We also got to spy on some wild creatures via trail cam in the Chilcotins – the perfect distance for grizzly viewing.
The stats are as life-affirming as a new book that suggests addiction has more to do with isolation than disease or personality.
What it all means? We really are all in this together.
Thanks for joining us. Keep on following. There’s lots more to come.
