BACK TO SCHOOL, NOT BACK TO STRESS

Kids Getting on School BusIsn’t it appalling?  Just as you’re getting your summertime groove on, all of a sudden there are “End of Summer Sales” popping up everywhere and the dreaded “Back to School Sales”.  Whether you’re going back to school, you have kids who are going back to school or even if you don’t fall into either of these categories, the Back to School stress is palpable. I see it in my practice every year immediately after Labour Day Weekend – sometimes even in the last week of August.  Everyone gets super busy and their stress levels go way up!  However, it doesn’t have to be this way. You actually can enjoy the rest of the summer AND be ready for the Back to School rush. That’s right – you can still enjoy your backyard BBQ bliss AND be ready to slide into the post Labour Day busyness. Here’s how….. (more…)

HOW TO HAVE A SUMMER VACATION EVERY DAY

summer vacationAccording to a new poll from BMO Financial Group, high gasoline prices will affect the summer travel plans of two-thirds of Canadians.  They simply cannot afford the extra cost. Nearly a quarter (22%) are planning more staycations this year and more than half intend to vacation strictly within their home province.
