Finding The Time For Yourself

For those of you who have come along on our #DoTheDaniel adventures over the last few years, you’ll have seen that I have a newfound appreciate of fitness and finding balance in my day-to-day. The difficult part of that is that “fitness” as a topic hasn’t always felt like the most approachable thing to me. Like many of you, it can be intimidating, and even overly expensive to try and work towards being more physically active and make healthier choices. Recently I found out that Fitbit has launched four new products that are aimed to make your health and fitness goals more accessible, and more importantly, more affordable.

The Next Step In My Journey

It’s August 2018 and I’m in the best shape I have been in a very long time. There are a lot of factors that play into that of course, but one of them is that I am taking a lot more time to focus on my physical well being. From hikes in the woods, to classes at SPINCO here in Toronto, my hard work is slowly starting to help me feel better about myself. And although it’s been a few months of me putting in the effort to focus on me more, I am proud of every decision I make to be a better me. One of the first events that we were lucky enough to attend that helped kick start my new attitude was with our friends at RYU Apparel – and ever since, I can’t stop wearing their amazing athleisure items to get my sweat on. So today I wanted to take a minute to ask you – what #YourUniverse would look like if you gave yourself more time to focus on what makes you happy? Continue reading “The Next Step In My Journey”
