A Dog Is For Life, Not Just For CoVid

By Chris Baker, Director of Global Sales, DMC Network

 

Growing up, we always had family dogs – black Labrador retrievers, the most affectionate and fun breed. The tradition continued with my brother, who now has three black labs in his family that his children adore. Friends also started introducing dogs into their lives, and I could see how much their lives were enhanced. I love animal interaction and knew I always wanted to get my own dog, however I always felt my lifestyle didn’t quite work – I travel a lot and wasn’t sure I had the right time to dedicate for those important first 6 months of bonding and training, so the years went by, and while I continued to toy with the idea, the time never felt quite right, and it simply never happened...

Going Vegan, Staying Vegan… and Staying Sane

By Aideen O’Keeffe, Marketing Assistant at SoolNua

 

My meat free journey began at the age of 12 when I became vegetarian. For my 21st birthday, I decided to challenge myself and adopt a vegan diet and lifestyle. The idea of merely eating vegetables and fruit terrified me. A life without milk and cheese, now that is scary. I am four years into my wonderful vegan journey and I have never felt better...

Shift from Busy to Intentional

By Karen Brar, Founder of Nourished Union

 

Move from the endless busy of life, to a more focused and energized way of living.

 

Morning alarm goes off, press snooze (1-5 times), or better yet, you wake with one of the kids poking your face until you open your eyes…  Whatever it is, it feels like you barely slept, and here comes another day.  Full of meetings, endless to-dos, business lunches, kids soccer game or school play (or both), while planning a weekend away with friends...

My Wellbeing Mantras

By Julia Trejo, Director of Business Development at Terramar, a DMC Network Company

 

I have been traveling non-stop for quite a number of years now, the majority of it being for work, which I love!  Working in the hospitality industry has given me a lot of satisfaction, although I do feel at times that I have neglected healthier habits. About a year and a half ago I learned that I had a medication condition that meant I had to modify many of these ‘less healthy’ behaviours, and I have truly found that my wellbeing has approved dramatically.

 

Below I have shared some of the key practices that I am now benefiting from...
