Return To Wellness !

 

“Wellness is the complete integration of body, mind, and spirit – the realization that everything we do, think, feel, and believe affects our well-being.”
– Greg Anderson

On Thursday, i.e., 17th January 2023, BUFFnation was present for a workshop in Brantford for Special Education teachers from The Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board.

It was called “2023, The Year of Me -The Total Wellness Reboot for more Energy, Joy, and Fulfillment”.

The presentation focused on what we resonate with within our day-to-day lives and how we can bring change for ourselves. There were multiple activities planned for the audience to get connected to. 

The coaching exercises conducted for the audience helped them understand that wellness is essential, its importance, and how to implement it. The significance it carries is helpful for overall well-being. In the workshop, steps were taught on how to bring balance into their day-to-day lives....

Homemade Pumpkin-Spicey Latte

nutrition recipes Oct 19, 2022
Nothing says fall like PUMPKIN! So we've created a creamy, rich, and delicious latte, perfect for a chilly fall day.
 
 Packed with healthy fats, and no added sugar, this is a quick and easy way to enjoy a restaurant-style coffee drink at home.
 
It's also a great way to cut back on coffee (cortisol spiker), because you can use decaf, and it tastes the same!
 
Below is the video for the latte base, and then you'll add the pumpkin fixings listed below the video.
 
Here's what you'll need for part one (outlined in video):
 
  • 1 cup of coffee (decaf or regular)
  • 1 Tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk)

 

 
Here's what you need for part two.
 
Once you've created the base latte above, 
add the following to your blender jar,
and pulse 3 to 4 times. If it needs warming, use a saucepan on the stove to heat it up.
 
  • 2-3 Tbsp pumpkin purée 
  • 1 Tsp (or more to taste) ground...

Revisit Your Emotional Why

Instead of asking yourself how you feel,

ask yourself what do you really want.

How will your life change when you get there.

And how you can make it happen!?

I think of this quote often:

“If you really want to do something,

you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse.”

Jim Rohn

 

Start Small

If you know you have a 40-minute cardio workout ahead of you, and you just don’t feel like it, start with just five minutes.

Say to yourself “I’ll do this for five minutes and if I’m just not into it, I can stop.”

Chances are you’ll continue for your entire workout.

 

 

Change Your Routine

Take your cardio outside. Go to the park to do your workout.

Head out for a hike! Changing things up will keep you motivated. Also set a goal...

“Just turned 45, but feel like 30! 😊”, exclaims Sara!
