I’m sure everyone is excited to finally see some of this nice weather most of us have been waiting for, for the last 8 months or so. As soon as the crisp Fall air arrives and the threat of snow is lurking I start an internal countdown for the summer months to arrive so I can wear open-toe shoes again. In addition to enjoying the sunshine and not having to cover every exposed section of skin with 3 layers of clothing, I also enjoy the feeling of new beginnings that Spring and Summer bring. During this time of year I enjoy going out and about in the city to check out community events and soak up new experiences.

Following last month’s initiative to boost Mental Health awareness I thought I would stem from that and share a community event that is promoting natural health and well being. On Friday June 6th from 3:00-8:00 pm and Saturday June 7th from 10:00am-5:00pm, the Varsity Community Centre is hosting the first Just For You Wellness Expo. The Expo will host a variety of holistic and alternative healing services as well as wonderful speakers to get you in-tune with your physical health. This is  family friendly event that will also have activities for children to take part in and  ample parking is available. Taking care of your mental and physical health will have positive effects on both your personal and workplace settings and allow you to create a balanced lifestyle.
