Are YOU the Type to Save a Life?

February 24, 2017 0

YYCfit Expo has partnered with Canadian Blood Services to raise awareness for the need for blood donation. Canadian Blood Services will be onsite at the expo offering free blood typing to anyone 17 years of age or older and will be booking blood donation appointments for their upcoming Calgary and area blood donor clinics.

Find Out Your Blood Type in Minutes:

Canadian Blood Services hosts community-based blood typing events across the country in every province except Quebec. It’s a way of helping raise awareness and recruit new blood donors, ensuring there is always enough blood for patients who need it.

How is my blood type determined?
We prick your finger and take a few drops of blood, mixing them with something called antisera to determine your blood type.

How much does it cost to determine my blood type – and how long does it take?
It’s free — and takes about two minutes.

How old do you have to be to find out your blood type?
You need to be at least 17 to participate in a typing event.

Meditation. Mindfulness. The buzz words of the year that you have likely heard floating around. But what exactly is it, and how do you fit it into your life?

Everyone these days seems to have a busy life, rushing from appointment to appointment, with a never ending to-do list. However, we will let you in on the first secret of meditation – once you begin, it truly feels like you have more time in a day. Perhaps it’s the fact that your brain begins to more clearly focus on tasks, and determine what is of actual importance. Or that you are beginning to feel that a new calmness sets in, permeating into all aspects of your life.

Boss being a jerk at work – meditation makes it easier to stay grounded and reply rationally. Spouse being difficult to get along with? Meditation increases levels of empathy, strengthening relationships of all types. Looking for more shut eye? Meditation can help you fall asleep faster, and increase the quality of your sleep. Other reasons to find a cushion and sit still for at least 10 minutes a day?

Increased focus
Reduced anxiety
Increase in creativity
Reduction of stress
Increase memory

So, what are you waiting for? Modern + Mindful offers 30 minute drop in classes 7 days a week! Visit their website at http://www.modernandmindful.com/.
