Raise your hand if you’re in need of some freakin’ relaxation! Okay, I can’t really see you raising your hand, but I’m gonna assume that you’re doing it anyways. Because, who doesn’t love some good old fashioned down-time combined with serious self-care! Amirite? Whether it be chilling at home with Netflix, meditating, hanging out with friends, or heading to the spa – no matter what you decide to do in order to maximize your downtime, you’ve just gotta do you, folks.
Winter is over and as much as I’m happy about the snow leaving us for another year, I also love making the most out of every situation (even the cold ones). With that, came some much needed winter exploration. And trust me, there’s no shortage of winter here in Ottawa.
Raise your hand if you like to relax. Raise your hand if you look on sites like Roots of Being to find the best ways you can relax and look after your body. Okay, now raise your hand if you actually take the time to relax. How many of you are sitting in front of your screens reading this with your hands up? I won’t assume too many (and not just because it might look kinda silly). We all lead busy lives, trying to fit in as much as we possibly can within what seems to be the confines of only a 24 hour day.
Growing up in Ottawa had its many perks, but shopping wasn’t really one of them. No offence Ottawa, but this was never your strong suit… until now. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I moved back here, but this city is growing and fast. From the expansion of the Rideau Centre to the rebranding of many of our other malls, exploring the newest additions to Canada’s Capital is one of my favourite things to do.
