SavingS you will fall for! Install energyefficient LED lighting outside. It provides great lighting and uses about 70 to 90% less energy than incandescent lighting. Find and seal leaks. Add caulk or weatherstripping to seal air leaks around leaky doors and windows.

Take advantage of heat from the sun. Open curtains during the day to allow sunlight to naturally heat your home, and close them at night to reduce the chill you may feel from cold windows.

Use a heavy duty outdoor timer to lower your holiday lighting costs. Lighting timers reduce wasted energy by ensuring lights aren’t left on.

SLOW

DOWN

SMELL THE COFFEE

&

I just attended a coffee tasting event at one of our many amazing cafes here in town. The barista suggested that the key to truly appreciating coffee is to smell and taste it before adding milk, sugar and jetting on with my day. Really? Smell it and appreciate it? I’ll be sure to stop and smell those roses on my way out, too. But really, I should be appreciating things. Coffee and flowers included. Why don’t I? Oh, right. I’m busy. I’m rushed, stressed and pushed to keep going, and I’m sure many people feel the same. I’m going 100 km’s/hour down the highway of life and things look blurry! I need to slow it down, but how? We should all listen to the barista. Start with your morning cup of coffee and go from there. Try applying this principle of slowing down and appreciating things to life in general.

Take time to recognize the simple things, like how colourful and lush it is outside right now, how that lushness smells of earth and crisp fallen leaves. How the warmth from the mug feels on your hands, the softness of your sweater, the coolness of the air, the smell of the coffee, and the taste. Oh, the taste. Take a deep breath, very deep. Feel your diaphragm expand and let the air into every part of your amazing lungs. Pull your arms up above your head (put the coffee down first) and feel that stretch all throughout your back and shoulders. Try to translate this into other parts of your life and see what happens. I will do the same. By Jennifer Lyon

ON THANKS

&

HAPPINESS By Matt J. King

Life wasn’t always like this. The joy that I feel and the excitement to seize the day hasn’t always been there for me. In fact, I went years without it. I sought help for depression, which was helpful, but happiness and contentment didn’t reappear until I built a life that was a suitable place for them to grow.

As I focused more and more on problems, my world became small. My worldview was no longer large enough to include other people, and, to be honest, I wasn’t living a great story. I knew that my life had to change. Believe it or not, there is a lot of science on happiness these days. It turns out that there are certain things we can do to cultivate it. A guy named Shawn Achor even studied Happiness at Harvard (Google him and watch his TED Talk - it's hilarious!) Here are two of his recommendations for daily practice: •

Write down three things you’re grateful for. This willl train your mind to look for positives throughout the day.

Perform a random act of kindness. This can be very simple. Tell someone you appreciate them, and why. Pay for someone's coffee. Give a couple of bucks to charity. Just do anything that benefits another person. (See also, "Spending Money on Others Promotes Happiness," Science Magazine, March 21, 2008)

Developing those two habits has made a huge difference in my approach to life. The more I take my focus off of myself, the better I live, and the better I feel. Here at Givesome, we're thankful for all of the users who have tried our app and given small amounts to make a big difference in people's lives around the world. And with your generosity, you've given many other people a reason to be thankful as well. Givesome is a free app on Google Play and the App Store. It connects you with charitable projects that you can support for as little as $2. Every time you give, you'll receive a video within weeks, showing the difference you made. It also makes you happy.

Give a little. See the good.

WRITER'S PROFILE

MOVING

BEYOND Jeff’s book, Beyond ADHD, advocates for a different approach to ADHD, arguing that it should be a diagnosis of exclusion rather than the other way around. Including interviews with a number of experts at the forefront of next-generation ADHD diagnostics and treatment, he questions the cookie-cutter way ADHD is commonly diagnosed and treated. From the depths of mental despair to becoming one of social media’s premier spokespeople for mental health issues, Jeff Emmerson is a veritable “Rocky” in the field. Jeff has written for and been interviewed by some of the world’s top online magazines regarding Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), including Everyday Health, featured on AOL Health, Consumer Health Digest and Additudemag. He also enjoys one of the world’s largest social media followings for a non-medical professional on the subject, with nearly 1 million followers. Jeff is empowering people across the world by teaching tools to break through behaviour and thought patterns that hold them back from deeper fulfillment and success in several areas of life. He has done the work in his own life and is a shining example of the human spirit in action. Signing his first book deal in May, 2016 was “just the beginning of my mission to help millions live

(Two years earlier, he had lost his brother Ryan to suicide). Living in Calgary in 2013, he took to social media channels and began blogging to reach an even larger audience - at which time he began reworking an old manuscript he had written about his life. He is a passionate advocate for mental health and fostering a deeper understanding beyond the accepted symptoms that have led to more than 30 million North Americans taking ADHD medication. He seeks to come up with solutions that return society to a place of compassion, humanity, community and empathy. His book, Beyond ADHD, is currently available on Amazon in audio, hardback and Kindle formats.
