Meet our Latest Exhibitor: Modern + Mindful

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/.

The tremendous benefits of exercise and active living are hard to ignore – from helping to maintain a healthy weight to increased energy to better sleep, the rationale for keeping fit is strong.  Starting a new routine can seem like a daunting prospect for fitness newbies.  The Mayo Clinic suggests these five steps to get started:

  1. Assess your fitness level
  2. Design your fitness program
  3. Assemble your equipment
  4. Get started by starting out slowly and building up gradually
  5. Monitor your progress

Specifically interested in starting an exercise program in Calgary?  Come out to YYCfit on May 13 & 14, 2017 to meet with Calgary’s finest fitness professionals and discuss how to best jump start your fitness routine.
