It’s bedtime. The lights are out. The bed is cozy. The temperature is perfect. You snuggle in with your head on the nice, cool pillow. And then… Your brain starts its nightly banter: Did I remember to put eggs on the grocery list? What time is the party on Friday? Have I given the dog her medicine this month? Why didn’t Jim at work say anything abo…
 
Hey there, Habit Thrivers! In today's episode we dive into the concept of how a "good day's waking leads to a good night's sleeping"( Dr. Andrew Weil). As soon as we open our eyes in the morning, we are preparing for a good night's sleep. I know it seems strange but honestly, if you move through your day thinking about your "future sleeping self" i…
 
We've all been here: Waking up the morning after a not-so-great night's sleep feeling sluggish, grumpy … maybe even a little regretful. You think back to the night before, when you got caught up in a Netflix series until way past your bedtime. Maybe it seemed like a good idea at the time, but the lack of planning and a nightly sleep routine has lef…
 
Often, in our busy and rushed lives, we look at sleep as something that needs to be done. Almost like a chore. How many times have you looked at the clock in the evening, thought about all the things you had on your to-do list, and said, “I have got to get to sleep…”? STOP thinking of sleep as something you have to “get to” and start thinking of so…
 
This week, on Episode #18 of the HabitThrive Podcast, we are wrapping up our month of Gratitude with a big bow. In the past few weeks, we’ve been learning how gratitude is a powerful tool that we can turn into an even more powerful habit. In our wrap-up episode, we’re driving home one of the most important things to remember: Gratitude is a practic…
 
This month on the Habit Thrive Podcast, we have been talking about Gratitude. We’ve explored the power of gratitude, how to flex our “gratitude muscles” and all about making gratitude a habit. This week, on Episode #17, I talk about how gratitude can be a powerful part of our toolbox during challenging times. It’s easy to find gratitude when the sk…
 
In this week’s episode I address the questions: Can a gratitude practice really become a habit? and Can it be as easy as brushing your teeth? The answer is absolutely! Especially if you follow the habit loop system (Cue - Routine - Reward) first described in the book, The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg Also have a peek at his book for interesting…
 
You may have heard the saying, "What you focus on grows." When you focus your attention and energy into positive things, you invite even more positivity and happiness into your life. This week on Episode 15 of The Habit Thrive Podcast, we focus on opening our eyes to the beauty and blessings around us and perhaps snapping a photo or two to savour t…
 
What are you grateful for? It could be something as simple as the transition into cooler, crisp fall weather or the fact that you finally perfected your chicken soup recipe. It could be something bigger like the birth of a child in your family, a promotion at work or the purchase of a new home. This month of October on The Habit Thrive Podcast, we …
 
As September comes to a close and we recall the past few episodes of the Habit Thrive Podcast focusing on Planning Happiness, I have one big question for you: Are you happy? Right now, right here, are you happy? Is that even an option for you in the present moment? Maybe. Maybe not. If not, then that’s OK. Because even with all of the tips, exercis…
 
If you’ve been following along with the Habit Thrive Podcast this month, then you’ve spent the past 2 weeks on Planning Happiness. Starting your day with intention? … check ✓ Making a plan for the flow of your day? … check ✓ So, now what? How do we keep the flow going day after day?

“Timing is everything inside the body.” -Deepak Chopra, MD This quote from one of my favorite books - Change Your Schedule, Change Your Life - perfectly represents our podcast theme for this month: Planning happiness! This week, on Episode #11 of the Habit Thrive Podcast, we talk about My Favorite Habit Hack for Better Health and More Happiness. Ha…
 
How do you want the story of YOUR next chapter to begin? Do you want to be the main character of a story that starts, “It was a dark and dreary day…” Or do you want it to say, “Her eyes popped open, feeling a rush of gratitude and excitement for the day ahead. She threw open the blinds, letting the sun pour in and said, ‘This is going to be an awes…
 
In this week's episode ( the final of 4 meditation episodes), we talk about ditching the "all or nothing" approach to our meditation practice. Our meditation "practice" can be a formal, structured sit down type of practice and/or it can me more of "mindfulness moment" type of practice similar to what we talked about last week with taking our medita…
 
Has this ever happened to you? You’re sitting around with a large group of people, perhaps at the table after Thanksgiving dinner. Or maybe you’re cozied up on the couch with your family after watching a movie or playing a board game. Or you could even be alone on your back porch as the sun is setting. And all of the sudden, without making a consci…
 
In this week’s episode " Can Meditation and Yoga really Change my Life?" we explore the concept of how sitting in meditation can help us become more comfortable with being "bothered". This, in turn, can mean more responding and less reacting in discussions, situations and relationships as we navigate our days and our lives. This may be a habit wort…

When you think about your next chapter, what do you imagine it to be like? How will it differ from yesterday? What things do you want to continue or carry over into this new chapter? One of the most exciting things about planning your next chapter is the ability to design it exactly how YOU want it to be. Welcome to episode 4 of The Habit Thrive Po…
 
Is there a habit you would like to incorporate into your life? Do you want to start taking daily walks, or start a regular meditation practice? Or, are you wondering how to break a habit, like late-night snacking? As you think about how you care for yourself in this next chapter, what type of new habit would you like to bring into your life or be m…
 
Have you been considering what this next chapter of your life will look like? Are you thinking about prioritizing your health and wellness? Is it finally time to focus on yourself? I know your family is still incredibly important, but now that you’re shifting into the next chapter of life it's important to be intentional about how you spend your ti…
 
Are you retired, an empty nester, or just curious about starting a new chapter? Do you finally have time to stop and notice the natural rhythms of your body? Things like sensitivity to seasonal changes, or energy fluctuations depending on what time of day it is? Your body is always giving you cues about what it needs. Now that you have more unstruc…

This week we hear one of Jesus’ parables found in the gospel of Luke. In Jesus’ parable the owner of the garden observes a barren fig tree. Reasonably, he orders it yanked out. But the gardener suggests that the owner give the fig tree another year. In the meantime he’ll break up the hard earth, aerating the ground around it so the roots can breath…
 
In this week’s passage from Luke’s gospel, Jesus uses the imagery of a fox and a hen in a surprising way. But the archetypes remain the same, so we know that in the end the fox won’t succeed and the hen will save the day. When Jesus speaks of Jerusalem, we get a rare glimpse of God as mother. He likens himself to a hen who longs to gather her disob…
 
The reading we hear this week from the gospel of Luke describes Jesus’ retreat in the wilderness. Following his baptism, Jesus retreats to an isolated place to ground his vocation as God’s beloved child and messenger of salvation. No doubt Jesus understands that with great power comes the possibility for great temptation. In solitude, the many inne…
 
The overarching themes in the readings for this week are relationships and forgiveness. In Genesis we see the relationship breakdown in families. You might think there's nothing new there, over 2,000 years on. On the one hand you have the brothers a bit disheartened that Joseph is alive, as they will have to ‘fess up' to what they actually did, and…
 
In the verses just before today’s passage, Jesus has been up on a mountain praying all night. When the sun comes up he calls together twelve of his followers and makes them disciples. Then he comes down to a level place and starts to teach. He hasn’t even had breakfast yet and people are gathering from all over the place to come hear him. They are …
 
One of our readings this week comes from the gospel of Luke. We hear how Joseph’s son has grown up. The wee boy that had sat at his father's feet in the carpentry shop hearing the worries of farmers as they waited for their ploughs to be fixed or the stories of husbands getting chairs mended, or the secrets shared as people worried over prices and …
 
You’ve got to love a new box of crayons. I am much more tempted to sit down and colour when there is a new box to break in. What is it though, about a new box that creates such excitement? Well, first every crayon is nice and sharp, perfect for staying in the lines. Second, all the colours are there. It is a complete and total set. So no matter wha…
 
The season of Epiphany began with celebrating the gifts of the magi, it continued with God’s gift of grace, affirmed through Jesus’ baptism, and focuses this Sunday on God’s vocational gifts bestowed on each person for the sake of the community and their own personal fulfillment.This week we hear the story of Jesus’ transformation of water into win…
 
This week we hear the story of Jesus being baptized by his cousin, John the Baptist, from the gospel of Luke. At the beginning of the passage Luke tells us the people were filled with anticipation. They were seeking, searching, longing for the Messiah, their saviour. John in turn gives them hope in his witness of who is to come and what the Messiah…
 
“Did you know Boxing Day was originally a day to give rather than receive? Before Boxing Day came to be associated with turkey sandwiches, football, and discounts, it was known as a day to serve people in need. Historically, the church visited those most vulnerable on Boxing Day and gave them money and gifts. The day wasn’t about giving―it was abou…
 
There are many kinds of nights. Some nights embrace us with a holy light, coming from a place within yet beyond the stars. Christmas Eve is among them. We feel a silent night deeper than all nights and filled with tenderness and love. Amid these feeling we are touched by God's listening and empathy, by that side of God which shares in the joys and …
 
This week we have a number of key scripture readings. It is one of those weeks where it is hard to just concentrate on one of them. In Luke’s gospel we have the entrance of John the Baptist who is the hinge to the salvation story. We also hear an Old Testament reading from the book of Malachi which is the end of the old story. In effect we hear Luk…
 
Our text this week from the gospel of Luke comes with some troubling words from Jesus. It seems that they are prophetic words about predicting the future and warning of the end times. However, if we only look at this passage thinking that it gives us a means to read the tea leaves and predict the future, then we have missed the point entirely. It s…
 
Today’s reading from John’s gospel is at its heart the story of two men: one, Pilate a son of Rome; the other, Jesus, the Son of God. The first seeks the truth; the second witnesses to it. Pilate uses the power and authority received from his emperor to impose the rule of an oppressive kingdom on the children of Abraham. Jesus uses the authority re…
 
This week’s readings describe answers to prayer as well as future hope and challenges. In many ways we will find them challenging because they are distant from our lived experiences. Yet, when we look more deeply, there is a message that emerges. This message is that despite life’s difficulties and threats, God seems to make a way where there seems…
 
On this Remembrance Day Sunday what do we have to offer back for those who sacrificed so much? Where does prayer, or communion or singing fit into desperate conflicts where two sides are reaching for weapons? We have our stories to offer. Stories that reveal a different vision of how things could be, are meant to be. Our story today comes from Mark…
 
The readings for this week are an important reminder that God brings people into our lives, inspiring our imaginations and luring us toward unexpected life changing encounters. Our dependence on God inspires us to be generous and open knowing that God will supply what we need. In the reading from Ruth we meet Naomi and her daughter-in-law Ruth. Two…
 
What would you do if you couldn’t fail? What mission would you attempt or what venture would you risk? All great questions, because they get us thinking, stretch our vision and stir our imagination. But as great as they are, maybe they are not the right questions to ask because we know there will be failure. There just will. In light of those quest…
 
In a sermon delivered many years ago by Martin Luther King Jr. he quoted Jesus’ words from the gospel of Mark about servanthood. Then he said, “Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know about Plato an…
 
The reading this week comes from the gospel of Mathew. Here Jesus urges the disciples and all of us to look around. Jesus points to the vastness of God’s gifts and pushes us to remember that God will take care of it all, so don’t worry, be grateful. Nothing is worth worrying about, for it is all in God’s hands and God will give us what we need. So …
 
The reading this week comes from the gospel of Mark. It begins with a dialogue on divorce but then the focus is on the children in Jesus’ time. The children were expendable in the first century. To some they were just nuisances and nobodies. In this encounter Jesus’ companions want to silence them. Instead though Jesus blesses them. It appears that…
 
Today’s reading from Mark’s gospel reminds us to expand our circle of healing and inspiration beyond our own communities. The disciples have been quite pleased with themselves for preserving the purity and practices of Jesus’ movement by silencing the healing done by an outsider from their group. They are surprised however when Jesus rebukes them f…
 
The reading we hear this week from Mark’s gospel is said to be one of those great moments where the disciples struggle to understand who Jesus is and what following him means. Such a human moment and a reminder to each of us that even those who walked with him on a daily basis didn’t get it right all the time. Jesus begins by telling the disciples …
 
In the reading we hear today from Mark’s gospel, Jesus and the disciples are in the district around Caesarea Philippi, where Herod the Great had built a temple and renamed the town after the emperor. It is during this time that the disciples’ assumptions and hopes about what Jesus would accomplish begin to collapse around them. Jesus’ announcement …
