Ciao Fit Crew!
How’s your walk into the dark days of winter starting for you? It’s no secret that when days get shorter, it can be a difficult transition for many people. December 21 is not far away and the light begins to shine a little more each day.
Did you know?
- Staying connected to others and committed to a schedule helps!
- If you need to be home, try to move, meditate or stock up on your favourite comedies.
- Most YMCA’s are free for indoor track walks.
- Canada’s new suicide crisis helpline is OPEN – People across Canada can call and text 9-8-8, giving people experiencing thoughts of suicide, or people worried about someone else, an accessible and easy number to call when they need urgent help.
And always, I am open to walks/talks (even in the snow) and always want to know what you are up to. Who’s out there?
Some goodies below:
I have been hinting for a while and I’m super excited to announce a new partnership with Air Canada Vacations with a very special wellness retreat in Antigua on April 7, 2024. This retreat is our first that will include flights. Wait! There’s more! Joining me are two phenomenal fitness champions, Maureen (Mo) Hagan and Nathalie Lacombe. Check out what your week will look like HERE.

LISTENING TO THIS:
Did you know that people who walk over 7,500 steps a day reduce their risk of all causes of mortality and are less likely to suffer from major depressive disorders? Great podcast to listen to while you do that: Dhru Purohit Podcast on Spotify (thanks Roberta Reardon for this gem!)
Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones by: James Clear – So very simple! (thanks Theresa Carrier for the recco!)
And for the U2 Fans out there (Remember “Vertigo” in spin class with me?) Bono reads to you in his melody of Irish accent in Surrender – 40 Songs, One Story
Do you have any to share? Send them along! You can find all of my playlists on Spotify – just follow me at Lore Wainwright.
