Happy Lunar New Year!
We are currently in the year of the rooster and the recent Lunar New Year has got me thinking about one of the mini goals I want to achieve this month.
To be honest with you, January was such a blur with travel, deadlines, work, family visits that I am declaring February the new January. A new month, means a fresh new slate and Lunar New Year is the perfect time to re-evaluate your goals to see where you’ve been and where you’re going. (more…)

I am truly trying to put myself first and focus on my health this year. It’s taken a backseat lately due to a big move, a busy work schedule and lots of travel. It’s always going to be something, so I’ve decided that I just need to be more flexible, less perfect and just get it done instead of overthinking it.
We’re almost at the end of January and this is usually when New Years resolutions fall by the wayside. So I’m sharing a few ideas and tips today on how I’m working to achieve my healthy eating and living goals: (more…)

Some of you may have noticed my enthusiasm and love for all things Japan.
I don’t know what it is – but it’s a country I could keep visiting again and again because it’s so different from my reality here in North America. I was so lucky to visit for the first time in 2013 and then again in 2016. The people are so incredibly kind and as a solo traveler, I always felt safe.
I have covered Tokyo and Kyoto so far, but I am super intrigued about Okinawa – a region with a cluster of 150 islands just south of Japan’s mainland. It’s perfect for a relaxing beach vacation because of Okinawa’s tropical climate, white sandy beaches and crystal blue water. It’s also a great place to go diving, snorkeling, and fishing.
Okinawa Island is also known for having the longest living people in the world. The local diet features handmade soba noodles, fresh seafood, vegetables and rice. It’s a great place to rest, reset and recharge, while immersing yourself in authentic Japanese culture without all the tourist traps.
‘Life, by Okinawa’ is a series of three videos that feature what this beautiful region has to offer and how it can benefit the physical and mental wellbeing for those who visit.
If you’re planning a trip to Japan in the near future, consider tacking on a beach vacation for a relaxing getaway in Okinawa, especially after a whirlwind visit to Tokyo. Flying time from Tokyo is only 3 hours direct.

If you’re new to smoothies and not sure where to start, this Strawberry Orange Banana Smoothie is a great jumping off point to start your year refreshed. From there, you can start incorporating spinach or other greens to get your full serving of fruits and vegetables in the morning.
This smoothie makes a delicious breakfast on-the-go. Just add your favorite vanilla protein powder to make it a meal and keep you full until lunch time. Or skip the protein powder and enjoy this as an afternoon snack. I like to pair it up with a hard-boiled egg if I’m still hungry. (more…)
