we need to have a talk

THE SUMMER BEFORE MY MOM DIED, I SEIZED every opportunity I could to ask her questions. A hodgepodge of queries spilled from my twenty-something brain as it tried to prepare for the impossible: a future without her. I asked where she kept her Christmas stuffing recipe and what her favourite memories were. I wanted to know what kind of career she would have chosen if she had grown up in an era when it was acceptable to desire such a thing. We talked endlessly about my teen brother, Max, who was just heading off to university. I had so many questions about how to help launch him into the world without her. Mom’s advice? Just love him unconditionally. Even though I believed I was asking the right questions, time showed me up — as…

GETAWAY GOALS I’m planning my first trip to New York City later this year and can’t wait to check out some of the suggestions from “New York State of Mindful”—especially the restaurants. Sampling the local food is one of my favourite things to do when travelling. Thanks for the recommendations! STACEY BUTTER, PENTICTON, BC SPICE OF LIFE I love many of Best Health’s articles, but the article in the June/July issue about turmeric was most intriguing to me. I’ve recently been looking into this amazing spice more and, for one thing, I never thought to add some to my morning smoothie. A quarter teaspoon and you can’t even taste it. Adding turmeric to my grilling sauces, who knew! This article was perfect timing for me. Thanks Best Health! JOAN GERUN, WESTLOCK, AB HEADS UP Your (Canadian!) magazine…

CONSIDERING THAT WE Canadians are spending a whopping 90 percent of our time indoors on average and that our homes have three to five times more pollutants inside than outside — thanks to chemicals lurking in materials like upholstery, paints and carpets — it’s worth springing for a few of these plant babies. PATIO Kimberly Queen Fern Place this indoor/outdoor plant on a patio, deck or balcony to filter out xylene agents, which are found in car exhaust. BATHROOM Boston Fern The NASA Clean Air Study revealed that it’s the best plant for removing formaldehyde, which can be found in bathroom staples like cleaning products, tissues, toilet paper and hair dyes. Plus, the plant thrives in low light and humidity, so the steam from your shower will do it good. BEDROOM Bamboo Palm Not only does this plant remove benzene…

With the sun shining and temperatures rising, you’re probably spending more time socializing, frolicking outdoors and showing off your bod on the beach. And with these easy tips, you’ll look good and feel ready to take on every adventure that summer throws your way. Screen Time Your number one mission this summer? Protect your skin from UV radiation. Apply a mineral sunscreen, which uses zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide to deflect the sun’s rays, then add a hat and shades. Smooth Moves Just like your face, your hair needs a little extra love during the summer months. Treat it (and your senses) to a mask, hair oil or leave-in conditioner to perk up dried out, listless strands. Moisture Burst Sweat, salt water and time in the sun may leave your face feeling parched. If your skin…
