CONNECTION

CONNECTION >>> Oooh so good! Have you been to @miraj_hammam_spa? It’s one of our favourite spas in BC and we had an amazing date there last weekend!⁣  Felt so good to invest in connecting as a couple, relaxing, and being pampered! ⁣  All treatments include a private steam room (Hammam) and exfoliation (Gommage) on a Jerusalem gold marble slab with black Moroccan soap, then a full-body massage with lavender oil, then private robed relaxation time in the Sultana Lounge nestled into velvet beds with silk cushions, sipping tea and eating cake. Amazing, right?!⁣

NUTRITION

NUTRITION >>> So simple and delicious! Barley with chickpeas, cannellini beans, tapenade and kale! I can’t bear the thought of a cold salad on a wintery day so I’ve been making a lot of warm salads like this one lately. Grains, beans, greens and some kind of seasoning: BOOM.⁣  I just finished reading “The Psychobiotic Revolution: Mood, Food, and the New Science of the Gut-Brain Connection” by John F. Cryan, Scott C. Anderson, and Ted Dinan, and was reminded how important fibre is to feed our good gut bacteria! ⁣  Want local, organic groceries delivered right to your door?

SLEEP

SLEEP >>> Thank you Atira Women's Resource Society for having me speak to your incredible team about #sleephygiene at your staff wellness day this week!! We dug into what’s happening while you sleep, the costs of sleep loss (mood! memory! metabolism! mental health! performance!), 9 tips to help you sleep better, and my favourite part: 150 people sharing what tips they’re committing to practice!⁣  Want to help your team sleep better? My talk is ready to rock! Currently booking for February 2019 and onward. Email catherineroscoebarr@gmail.com with inquires.⁣  On another note, isn’t it ironic? Me, talking about the benefits of sleep while I am so sleep deprived! This is the funny/tragic thing about being both a wellness coach and a new mom.⁣  While I’m up-to-date on the latest research/insights on sleep, I’m not getting very much ACTUAL SLEEP. But putting this presentation together was a great reminder of all the little things that make a big difference to sleep QUALITY (even when quantity is suffering).⁣  ⁣

MOVEMENT

MOVEMENT >>> When your brain flourishes, your mind-body-spirit flourishes too! Physical activity – whether it’s exercise, housework, locomotion or sex (!) – triggers a cascade of feel-good brain chemistry that instantly boosts your mood to help you FLOURISH.⁣  If you find yourself feeling down during the holidays, crank up some music you love and DANCE! Or, get bundled up and get outside for a WALK! Do something, anything, that MOVES your body!⁣  Check out “Go Wild: Eat Fat, Run Free, Be Social, and Follow Evolution's Other Rules for Total Health and Well-being”, the latest from www.johnratey.com. ⁣  ⁣
