a joyful start

IT’S INSANE TO THINK THAT WE’VE ARRIVED at 2020. Wasn’t it just yesterday we were planning for Y2K, stockpiling batteries for impending blackouts and stashing away money to safeguard against malfunctioning ATMs? So that didn’t happen. LOL. But what the heck did happen because, in the blink of an eye, two decades have whipped by and the world has changed profoundly. At the turn of the century, Google was just a toddler and Instagram only a twinkle in its founders’ eyes. Fitbits? Etsy? Twitter? Same. No doubt about it, the tech boom has led to seismic changes, providing amazing opportunities that we could have barely imagined in 1999. But, let’s face it, tech has also had a negative impact on us, creating issues that we never saw coming. Tech neck, anyone? It’s causing more…

I was inspired and reassured by your thought-provoking article “Stop Demonizing Food” in the October/November issue. Often, we adopt diet and exercise regimens that are far too rigid and unrealistic to maintain. And it doesn’t help when the health police in all their incarnations – TV experts, social media, magazine ads, trainers, well-meaning friends – support these practices. It’s much more humane to aim for an 80/20 balance and enjoy the occasional cheeseburger or caramel chocolate fudge brownie. Molte grazie, Lara Ceroni! JOANNE GUIDOCCIO, GUELPH, ON I liked the Instatrip article, “Explore Osoyoos,” in your October/November issue. Having lived in the Okanagan in BC, I know some of the facts about the area but gained more insight into the value of a “staycation.” RAY TURNER, KELOWNA, BC I’ve always appreciated Best Health for its…

HERE ARE THREE RESEARCH- backed ways to hack your inner voice and perform better at whatever you’re going for. BRB, jotting these down. 1 USE THE THIRD PERSON According to a 2017 study from Michigan State University, switching to third-person self-talk helps people control their emotions – and with no extra effort. Researchers suspect that when people refer to themselves in the third person, they think about themselves similar to how they think of others and create psychological distance from their experiences, which helps them regulate their emotions. 2 ASK YOURSELF A QUESTION People who ask themselves whether they’ll perform a task generally perform it better than those who tell themselves they will. In a 2010 study from the University of Illinois, researchers asked two groups to write down either the affirmation “I will”…
