Stories I loved this week.

Photo by Greg Rakozy Ah, that freelance life. It’s full of ups and downs that I’ve just gotten my head around after doing it for the last 18 months. I’m going into my last week of my current contract and I’m now at the point (finally!) where I can be Zen…

I Tried It: Foam Rolling

Foam rolling. It’s so hot right now, isn’t it? Goop’s talking about it, Kayla’s released her own branded grid roller and many gyms now have rollers as standard in their cool down sections. But what is foam rolling? in a nutshell, foam rolling or myofascial release, to use the technical…

Stories I loved this week.

On becoming a naturopath.

Photo by Jazmin Quaynor O Canada! We’re here! Everyone is so polite and it surprises me every time I visit. Not just polite in an obligatory sense, but in a genuinely interested way. I miss that. We’re here in Toronto for the week and it’s been great to show little J…
