Could a Sleep Divorce Help Your Marriage?

Could a Sleep Divorce Help Your Marriage?

A sleep divorce! It’s all the rage!

JUST KIDDING!

But with headlines like these: Getting a Sleep Divorce Is the Best Thing I’ve Ever Done for My Marriage—and My Health and A sleep divorce could save your marriage, I wanted to discuss it on Global TV this week.

So, let’s discuss the ins and outs. And what is a sleep divorce anyhow?

No Title

No Title

When you show up for the first time to teach a new group of six incredible moms for private yoga at their home, and this is waiting for you. So special. I’m so grateful.

I’ve spoken a lot recently about my imposter syndrome, and how I have felt sometimes like a “jack of all trades, expert at nothing” because I am so multi-passionate. But I don’t doubt my choices anymore.

I feel so evolved in all my different arms: lifestyle and career from my coaching practice and mentoring entrepreneurs since the age 26, parenting lifestyle from my Global TV job and blog, and confident on the mat in health/wellness with my students after 18 years of practicing weekly then teaching.

I’m learning that it’s okay to love, focus on, and work your different passions, so long as you stay in your lane. I’m staying in my lane, and spreading my wings in those lanes.

Nothing Exceeds Like Excess

Nothing Exceeds Like Excess

I’ve been hesitating sharing this story. It’s not a particularly popular topic. When you tell people you don’t drink, unless you have an excuse like you’re allergic or you’re on antibiotics, the reaction isn’t always… enthusiastic.

No one wants to question their own alcohol consumption. And think about it, what was the last social activity you did that did not involve alcohol? How far back do you have to go?

I only noticed how prominent alcohol was in my life once I decided to stop partaking in the most socially acceptable, celebrated and damaging mind altering substance out there. Everywhere you look, alcohol seems to be the star of the show. You can’t go to a social event unless there’s a promise of wine. And today women more than ever are getting on board the binge drinking train. How many memes do you see equating heavy drinking with a liberated badass woman all in the name of equality? In Montreal especially, us women pride ourselves on our high tolerances and our ability to drink hard liquor ie Jamieson straight, without batting an eyelash.

5 Reasons We all Need to Quit Complaining NOW

5 Reasons We all Need to Quit Complaining NOW

Hi, I am Christine Lewicki, wife, author and mother to three girls. I am also a recovered complainer.

Like many women today, I have a very full, busy, and hectic life. We have all seen the commercials and the movies that glamorize the work/mom juggle. But the struggle is real. On the outside, I had a happy life, but deep inside I was resisting the daily grind and it was draining me. My reaction to the stress was to complain and moan everyday about everything that was getting in my way.  Eventually I set out to change my response and react differently. I challenged myself to quit complaining.

It has been quite a journey.

This is my story.

How To Help Support Your Teen Before and During Exams

How To Help Support Your Teen Before and During Exams

Girls, I really liked this morning’s Global TV segment and am excited to share it with you today.

At 8:20am, I spoke all about upcoming May and June exams and shared tips and tactics on how to help support your teens before and during exams, and how to help our kids de-stress and thrive during this overwhelming period.

We are dealing with this now in our home as my 10th grader starts exams in just a few weeks. I have been taking my own advice, and guiding him to avoid cramming, start backward planning, and learn proper stress management tools. We’re a work in progress.

Honoring Women On Mother's Day

Honoring Women On Mother’s Day

Sunday is the day we honor mothers everywhere. For some, Mother’s Day is a day to rejoice. For others, it’s a sad and difficult day, as many will celebrate this Mother’s Day without a mom. It’s my first Mother’s Day without my beautiful aunt in my life.

It’s not easy.

And finally, for others, it’s a dreaded day filled with tension and perhaps regret of what could have been.

I recall a few years ago, I was at Walmart buying cards for my mother and mother-in-law, and next to me, there was a beautiful woman in her thirties also shopping for cards. We looked at each other and said, “Not a great selection, huh?” But then I found something really nice, and I said to her, “Hey, look at this one. It’s a nice one,” to which she replied, “Oh no, I can’t stand my mother.”

How To Get Off Your Butts and Achieve Your Dreams with Dr. Alex Avila

Too many women are on the fence today—not able to decide what they want to do with their lives. Juggling the demands of motherhood, wifehood (or being a single parent), as well as being a breadwinner and working on their personal development, there is a disconnect between what women really want and what they have. Are you a woman on the fence? If so, there is hope for you.

Here are some tips to help you get off the fence and get started with your life:
