Financial Goal Setting

Independent & Trusted Investment Advice

Mary Rourke

SENIOR INVESTMENT ADVISOR

Specializing In All Aspects of Retirement & Estate Planning.

Every year, people enter the New Year with a list of resolutions. They want to lose weight or pay off debt. Not long after the ink dries on that very list, a resolution is broken. Money matters should not be left to resolutions. Instead of creating a list of possibly empty promises to yourself, try setting realistic financial goals.

905-503-4100

There may be many issues that you would like to tackle when it comes to your finances. Don’t get too far ahead of yourself. It is important to establish where you are now financially before you can look at the future. If you have excess debt hanging over your head, you definitely need to address it. If you are concerned about your financial future, then you may want to concentrate on saving for your retirement. Whether you are paying off credit card debt, paying down a mortgage or saving for the future, you need to be flexible. You may plan to spend $X on your monthly debt, but something happens and suddenly you don’t have the finances you had anticipated. All it takes is a bit of organizing and reorganizing to reach your target.

Create a detailed plan that outlines how you will achieve your objectives. Remember to be realistic and divide your list into short-term, mid-term and long-term goals. Short-term goals may be reached realistically within one year. Mid-term goals may be scheduled for 5 years while more time may be needed for longerterm goals. Financial Planners are a third-party that can take the emotion out of creating a financial plan. They can help you create realistic goals while monitoring your progress. They can also help you stay on track and find alternate ways to deal with any sudden issues. Once you’ve made your plan, the real challenge may be sticking with your goals. There are always unexpected issues in life that will cost you money. When budgeting for your goals, be sure to factor in emergency savings. These are funds that may be needed for car repairs, house repairs and other unpredictable events. Emergency funds can help you avoid adding to your already heavy debt load. It is easy to forget about a plan after it has been established and enacted. Keep track of your finances monthly and re-evaluate your strategy. Finances can change and you may need to make adjustments. You may also want to change your focus if you have already achieved some of your goals. Once you have tackled your credit card debt, for example, you may want to use the money you had reserved for that task on another goal. Maybe paying off the mortgage is the next step in your financial plan. If you have already paid down your debts, you may wish to start saving for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation or a new home. Retirement is also a wise option for any extra money.

The ABCs of Wall Art

There is this one wall in your house that is driving you nuts. It is big and empty. You have spent many hours trying to figure out how to decorate this space. Should you paint it a different colour than the rest of the room? But it will still be bare. Should you hang wallpaper? All you can think about is how much fun it is to wallpaper... and then you decide you definitely do not want to wallpaper. Art... you can hang some art. But what? How much? How big? Before you begin hunting for the perfect wall art, consider the room you are decorating. Is it a living room? Are you filling a wall in a kitchen? How big is the space that you are filling? First and foremost,  choose the art that you love. It is your home and your space and you need to fill it with your personality. After all, you need to see it every day. Try out various kinds of art. Paintings can add a wonderful whimsical look to a room depending upon the artist you choose. Photographs can add a glimpse of reality. Before you choose, shop around. Take a look at shops in your area that offer local artists’ fare. There may be a painting, photograph or another piece of wall art that is unique and just what you are looking for. Keep your eyes peeled when you attend other local shops and restaurants. Some restaurants allow local artists’ to display their works.

Going big and going home is not always the best method when it comes to choosing art. Larger pieces of art may not compliment a space as you think it will. When you head out  to purchase any art, be sure to have the dimensions of your wall so you will know exactly what size of space you are trying to fill. It may help if you take pictures of the room you are decorating with you. You will be able to compare the colour of your room with the art you are considering. Are you looking to draw attention to the wall? Choosing colours that are more vibrant will definitely turn an eye. If you are hoping to add decoration that compliments the overall colour of the room, then you can do your best matching job if you have pictures with you. Don’t restrict yourself to art work that follows the theme of your room. You do not necessarily have to add traditional art to a more traditional room… try colouring outside of the lines. Add a more contemporary or abstract piece to a traditional setting. Once you have chosen your artwork, give it the attention it deserves. Hang your piece at eye level and about 60 inches above the floor. Try adjusting the lighting of your room or add a picture light to highlight your new artwork.

Beginner’s Weight Training So this is it. You have thought it over for what seems like an eternity and you have finally decided to do it. You plan to transform those sagging muscles into something more solid and toned. No more hiding behind layers of clothing. This is going to be your year. Where do you start? Before you spend thousands of dollars on equipment, take a minute to determine your goals. *Not shown in picture: Each trampoline is equipped with a t-bar for added stability

There are many reasons to start weight training. It builds muscle mass, increases endurance, tones the body and even promotes weight loss. What are your reasons for weight training? Are you looking for extra muscle mass, or are you hoping to amp up your strength while toning. Before you begin any kind of weight routine, consult your physician. Weight training is not for everyone especially those with certain medical conditions. Weight training is essentially resistance training. Weights provide a type of stress to muscles that causes them to work harder and build strength. Exercises can be performed on weight machines or with free weights like dumbbells and barbells. Resistance bands can also assist with strength training.

Yoga Classes with

Gyms offer a variety of weight training programs. Personal trainers can assist you with the appropriate type of routine for you. If you have any health issues or concerns, a trainer can monitor your routine to ensure your safety. They can also show you the correct way to exercise. You might think that weight training involves a daily commitment. Truthfully, you do not need to hit the weight room every day for an hour to see results. In fact it is better to incorporate weight training into your workout program that involves other types of exercises. It is recommended that strength training be incorporated about two to three times a week. If you are beginning and are looking to lose weight, try a weight program two times a week. You can gradually build up to more times a week after a couple of months. Before you grab the barbells or the dumbbells, warm up. It is easier to injure cold muscles than warm ones. Try weight training after you have done a 10-minute aerobic exercise or brisk walk. The key to weight training is repetition. If you are new to the world of weights, try one exercise once with a set of 10-15 repetitions. Make sure not to start with the heaviest weight you can find.  Start slowly and only use weights that are a few pounds. Over time you can increase the weight and the number of repetitions. Make sure you don’t plan your weight routine over two to three consecutive days. Your muscles will need time to recover from the workout. Plan a day of rest from weight training between sessions. Or try dividing your muscle routine. Work on legs on Mondays and arms on Tuesdays. This will give your legs a rest before you do another lower body workout.

This Month IN HISTORY Famous January Events January is the first month of the Gregorian calendar. It is fitting that it is the first month of the year because January has also been a month of firsts in Canadian history. On January 11, 1922, there was a breakthrough in the treatment of Diabetes. 14-year old Leonard Thompson was the first diabetic to be successfully treated with Insulin. The procedure took place at Toronto General Hospital and it saved Thompson’s life. After the success of Thompson’s procedure, Insulin was mass-produced to help other diabetics. The technique later earned creators Frederick Banting and Charles Best a Nobel Prize. Being Canadian has always been a point of pride for those who live in this country. Prime Minister W. L. Mackenzie King officially marked Canadian pride on January 6, 1947 when he received the first Canadian Citizenship certificate. It was presented in Ottawa, Ontario. Canada’s capital has seen many firsts in Canadian history. On January 1, 1967, Canada’s Pension Plan began, amending the Old Age Security plan. The Canada Pension Plan reduced the qualifying age for Old Age Security from 70 to 65. While the plan started in January of 1967, the full pensions were not available until 1976. It was a first of a different kind for a Canadian Hockey Icon in January of 1986. Number 99, the Great One became the first NHL player to score 100 or more points in seven consecutive seasons. As Captain of the Edmonton Oilers, Wayne Gretzky led the team to win the Stanley Cup four times in five years. While Gretzky has become a historical name in the game of hockey, Justice Beverly McLachlin made a name for herself in different circles. Justice McLachlin was sworn in as the first female Chief of Justice of The Supreme Court of Canada on January 12, 2000. McLachlin was a provincial court judge in British Columbia before being named to the Supreme Court in 1989. A couple of years later in 2002, there was another first appointment. James Bartleman, a member of the Mnjikaning First Nation, was installed as the first Aboriginal Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. Bartleman grew up in Port Carling, Ontario. He spent 35 years in the Canadian Foreign service before he became Lieutenant Governor. Bartleman also served as Canada’s ambassador to the European Union from 2000 to 2002. Kathleen Wynne made history in 2013 when she was elected as the first female Premier of Ontario. Wynne is also the first gay Premier. She began her political career as a School Trustee with Toronto District School Board. During her time in provincial politics, Wynne has been Minister of Education, Minister of Transportation and Minister of Aboriginal Affairs. In January 2015, it was a celebration of a first… 200 years later. On January 11, 2015, Canada celebrated the birth of the country’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A MacDonald. It was MacDonald’s 200th birthday.

It used to be that choosing a television meant picking the appropriate size for your space. If you walk into a store that sells televisions now, the choices are far more than size. Do you want a flat screen or curved? An LED or OLED set? Would you prefer Ultra HD or a Smart TV? With all of these choices it’s hard to decide. What you need is a TV guide… well, not the one you are thinking of.  This one walks you through the characteristics of each television so you can see what works for you. 4K UHD This type has over 8 million pixels of colour, clarity and detail compared to over 2 million in 1080p. It has 4 times the pixels of full HD with built-in upscaling – whites are brighter, there is more definition and tons of details. As for the viewing distance, you can sit as close as four feet away and still have a great experience, so you can have a large screen in a smaller space. 4K units also give you the option to create your own content and bring it into the system with 4K streaming capability.

LCD and LED sets Most of the televisions on the market today are LED-LCD sets. These HD and Ultra HD sets are extremely thin and use lightemitting diodes (LEDs) to illuminate their LCD screens. Many feature active dimming or local dimming, that is the set can dynamically dim or light up specific portions of the screen to better represent a mix of dark and light areas in a scene. OLED Guaranteed, if you are looking at an OLED TV in a store, you’ll see a fireworks video playing on it. This is simply because of the way OLED TVs use organic LEDs controlled at the pixel level to create stunning contrast and absolute black. Colours pop and shadow details are superior. When viewed from the side, the picture quality is exceptional. The only issue you’ll have is the high price tag. Smart TVs Smart TVs incorporate a computer and Internet access with very high quality screens. Viewers can check their social media sites and other popular websites while they watch TV. It may sound distracting, but you’ll be able to multi-task and socialize during your programs making Smart TVs the most interactive option.

Silky Smooth Skin There is nothing like smooth, silky skin that looks flawless and is soft to the touch. But, it seems that no matter what you do to try to have the ‘perfect’ skin, the elements are working against you. So what can you do to try to smooth out this issue? Most women will likely say they grab the razor in the shower and scrape away any signs of stubble while their conditioner sets. It may be a quick way to smooth out unwanted hair, but it is not the only way. Waxing has long been a popular method of hair removal. Most hot wax mixtures contain resins but they can also be made from natural ingredients like beeswax and honey. There are waxes that also contain fragrances and chemicals that preserve the mixture. Many salons offer hot wax hair removal for various parts of the body. Warmed wax is applied in the direction of hair growth. Cloth strips are applied and ripped off in the opposite direction of the hair growth. Sounds painful? It can be uncomfortable for a few minutes. Those who administer the wax need to be careful not to apply it to any skin while it is too hot. The sticky substance can burn the skin.

Some like a sweeter way of removing unwanted hair. Have you ever considered pouring a little sugar on it? Sugaring is another way to rid your body of unwanted hair. The all organic mix is made up of food ingredients like sugar, lemon juice, water, honey and essential oils. It is used much like wax but with some definite differences. Sugar comes in two forms… paste or gel. The paste is used at room temperature and is therefore not likely to burn any skin. The gel form is much like wax, it is heated. There is a chance that gelled sugar can cause burns if it is applied while it is too hot. Paste is removed differently than wax. Sugar paste is applied in the direction of hair growth and it is removed that way as well. That makes it a gentler way to remove hair from the more sensitive areas like the upper lip and the bikini line. Sugar is also much easier to clean after the hair removal process. Sugaring paste washes away with water, wax needs to be removed with baby oil or petroleum jelly. After any hair removal it is important to moisturize, but avoid any scented lotions and perfumes. They can irritate the skin. Aloe vera is a gentle way to moisturize after waxing or sugaring. Keep the temperature down in the shower. Hot showers or baths will also irritate any areas that have had hair removed. Wait about 24 hours before turning up the heat. You may be inclined to exfoliate after your hair removal. It’s a good idea to hold off from scrubbing for 24 to 48 hours.

If you’re suffering from nerve problems in the arms and legs, you must read about a clinical study that showed..

How 85% Of Patients Eliminated Numbness, Tingling, or Sharp Pains Numbness, tingling, and pain is an extremely annoying problem. It may come and go...interrupts your sleep... and even makes your arm or legs feel weak at times. Maybe you’ve even been to other doctors and they claim all the tests indicate you should feel fine.

If You Read Nothing Else,Read This: More than 20 million Americans suffer from peripheral neuropathy, a problem caused by damage to the nerves that supply your arms and legs. This painful condition interferes with your body’s ability to transmit messages to your muscles, skin, joints, or internal organs. If ignored or mistreated, neuropathy can lead to irreversible health conditions. Why not get help by those trained to correct the major cause of peripheral neuropathy.

More Pills Are Not The Solution A common treatment for many nerve problems is the ‘take some pills and wait and see’ method. While this may be necessary for temporary relief of severe symptoms, using them long term is no way to live. Some of the more common drugs given include pain pills, antiseizure mediations, and anti-depressants -all of which have serious side effects.

The Likely Cause Of Your Problem My name is Dr. Joshua Nikkanen, clinic director at Crossroads Chiropractic. I’ve been helping people with neuropathy and nerve problems for more than 14 years. Often neuropathy is caused by a degenerating spine pressing on the nerve roots. This can happen in any of the vertebral joints from the neck all the way down to the tail bone. The good news is that chiropractic treatments have proven effective in helping to remove the pressure on the nerves.

By using gentle techniques, I’m able to release the pressure that has built up on the nerve. This allows the nerve to heal and the symptoms to go away. For example, numerous studies have proven chiropractic’s effectiveness in helping nerve conditions. Patients showed an 85.5% resolution of the nerve symptoms after only 9 chiropractic treatments. - Journal of Chiropractic Medicine 2008 With chiropractic care, patients had “significant improvement in perceived comfort and function, nerve conduction and finger sensation overall.” – JMPT 1998 “Significant increase in grip strength and normalization of motor and sensory latencies were noted. Orthopedic tests were negative. Symptoms dissipated.” – JMPT 1994 What these studies mean is that you could soon be enjoying life...without those aggravating nerve problems.

Could This Be Your Solution? It’s time for you to find out if chiropractic will be your neuropathy solution. For 14 days only, $35 will get you all the services I normally charge new patients $220 for! What does this offer include? Everything. Take a look at what you will receive: •

An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case.

A complete neuromuscular examination.

A full set of specialized x-rays to determine if a spinal problem is contributing to your pain or symptoms… (NOTE: These would normally cost you at least $100.)

A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain-free.

Don’t Let Numbness, Tingling and Pain Hold You Back From Enjoying Life!

I’ll answer your most probing questions about nerve problems and how chiropractic can help.Until January 27, 2017 you can get everything I’ve listed here for only $35. The normal price for this type of evaluation including x-rays is $220, so you’re saving a considerable amount by taking me up on this offer. Call 905-830-1146 now. We can get you scheduled for your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening. Our office is located just a few doors down from Yonge on Eagle St, just a few minutes from you. When you call, tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Nerve Evaluation so she can get you on the schedule and make sure you receive proper credit for this special offer.

Sincerely, Dr. Joshua Nikkanen, D.C. P.S. Remember, you only have until January 27 to reserve an appointment at this significant discount. Why suffer for years in misery?That’s no way to live, not when there could be an easy solution to your problem. P.P.S. Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically feeling held back from life because your arms or legs hurt – and the pain just won’t go away!Take me up on my offer and call today 905-830-1146.

Senior BEAT Eye Health It is no secret that as we get older parts of our bodies change. One of the first functions to fail seems to be eyesight. What was once 20/20 may have weakened to 20/70. It is common for eyesight to deteriorate with age, but there are some vision issues that are not necessarily due to aging.   Low Vision means completing daily tasks is challenging. This type of problem involves a loss of the central and the peripheral vision as well as blurred vision and night blindness. If you are suffering from Low Vision, you will have difficulty identifying faces, reading and driving. A visit to the eye doctor will uncover any underlying issues. The doctor will be able to find the best solution for your problem. Glaucoma affects more women than men. The disease damages the optic nerve of the eye. It is caused by a build up of fluid in the front part of the eye that creates pressure that can damage the optic nerve. Many people who have the beginning stages of the disease may not even know that they have Glaucoma. The disease is the leading cause of blindness in people over the age of 60. An annual visit to the eye doctor is the best way to make sure your eyes are healthy. Early detection and treatment can save your vision. Check your family history, some types of Glaucoma are hereditary. If you have diabetes or high blood pressure, you have a higher risk of having Glaucoma. Another common issue for older eyes is Cataracts. Women are more likely than men to suffer from this issue. A Cataract is a cloudy area that forms on the lens of the eye. They cause blurry, cloudy and even dim eyesight. In the early stages, Cataracts can be undetected. There may not be much change to your eyesight. As it advances, there are definite changes to vision. Surgery is the only way to correct an eye that has a Cataract. The cloudy lens is removed from the eye and replaced with a clear artificial implant. One of the ways to reduce your chance of getting Cataracts is to protect your eyes from the sun’s UVB rays. Have regular eye exams and if you suffer from other health issues, make sure to keep them in check. Some diseases can lead to eye problems.

House Calls, Evening & Weekend Appointments Available

Alina Fainshtein DD Mouth & Sports Guards Teeth Whitening Full & Partial Dentures

There are a few other things that can be done to keep your eyes healthy. Sleep is an important activity for overall health. While we sleep, our eyes are being lubricated constantly and any irritants or allergens that have built up during the day are being cleaned from our eyes. Believe it or not, exercise is also good for your eyes. Regular exercise helps maintain good circulation of blood and oxygen. It can also help regulate weight and reduce the risk of other diseases that can lead to eye issues.

Youth BEAT Applying to University By Samantha Forani, Graduate of McMaster University It is that time of year. The Holidays are sadly over, it is snowy and cold, and deadlines for university applications are looming. For those who are unaware, the deadline for all university applications to the OUAC is January 11th. Note that you can apply after this date, but not all universities will accept them, so missing this deadline is not recommended. Now most of you will have already applied. But with the busy Holiday season many others will have forgotten. Applying to university is not something you want to rush though. Applying to the right university means knowing what you want to dedicate yourself to for the next four years. Meeting with a guidance counsellor will always help with this if you are not sure. Right around this time 6 years ago, I was sitting with my guidance counselor panicking about whether I was ready to go to university or if I should do a victory lap like my older brother did. A victory lap is a great decision for many people. My brother for example, was not sure what he wanted to do at the end of grade 12. His victory lap gave him the time to figure things out and he is now a nurse. I however did not take a victory lap and it was a great decision. I was very excited to go to university and loved my program (English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University) and now work in Human Resources.

But it is not just a matter of finding out what you want to study, but what school will offer the best program for you, and university will not always be the answer for that. For many programs, college is a better option as it is often more hands-on in the classroom. For instance many college engineering or electrician courses are great for the handson learning aspect. As well, trade schools for programs like construction and carpentry are a great decision as well. Making this decision will also mean choosing what you want to graduate with (i.e. a diploma, degree, certificate, etc.). Each educational institution will reward a different document of completion. A certificate is specific to a single skill set or industry (i.e. electrician). A diploma is similar to this but usually goes more in depth. Degrees are awarded to successful graduates of universities and colleges for completing their program of study. Now this is a lot to put into a short article, but these are all important things to think about when applying to postsecondary studies and what will be best for you. Researching the things I have mentioned further will be beneficial to anyone who is unsure about the right path for them. Postsecondary education is a big decision so make sure it is the right one for you!


Time to Register for Kids’ Programs You’ve just finished with the holiday season and feel it’s time to wind down and take a breather, but did you know this is the best time to think about registering your kids for youth and children’s winter programs? If you take a look at your child’s school calendar, you’ll find a number of scheduled days off coming up soon. While it may seem a long way off, March break will be here before you know it and if you are not thinking about registering early, you may find yourself in a predicament when choosing the right activities for your little ones. So, what should you be doing first? Making a list of possible activities your child might be interested in is a great way to start. Take into consideration your child’s routine and personality. Is he or she the type to focus and concentrate? Or does he or she have energy to burn and crave a challenge? Once you have a list, how far are you willing to travel? Jot down the addresses of each location as well as the distance away from your home to ensure everyone knows about the time commitment should that activity or program be chosen. Next, go online to visit each of the program’s websites. Take time to not only look at their selection, but to also check for reviews from past participants. You can also take some time to add in a question to a discussion forum, if you have any concerns or need further information.

Do a search to find out when all the open house events are. Just about every kids’ program has some sort of open house, where you’ll be able to meet the staff and students and become familiar with what is being offered. Many places will give you free trials, which are a great way to be sure your child will enjoy what is being taught to them. Another bonus with open houses is that there might be discounts offered for early signups. Ask your friends for recommendations. Other parents with older children have probably been to many of the places you are thinking of choosing and could offer great advice. Involve your children in the decision. It’s easy to pick a program around the corner from you, as it is probably the most convenient, but it may not be where your kids want to go. Talking to your child and asking him or her what their preferences are will result in a better experience for both you and your child. Plus, they will be excited to attend. Get your child to go with a friend or two. Sometimes, a little encouragement is needed to enrol your child into any program that takes them away from mom or dad. Having a friend sign up with them will give them an extra reason to get out the door and have some fun!

2 Florida Grapefruits 1 whole fresh organic chicken 1 tbsp fennel seeds 1 tsp black peppercorns 1/2 tsp coarse salt 2 tsp garlic powder 1/2 cup honey

Directions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Fun with Santa

7. 8.

Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Place chicken into a roasting pan and set aside. Toast fennel seeds and pepper in a small pan over high heat for two to three minutes until fragrant. Transfer to a mini food processor. Add salt and garlic powder and pulse until granular. In a small mixing bowl, stir together spice mixture, 1/4 cup grapefruit juice and honey. Drizzle chicken with half the glaze, reserving the rest for basting. Slice second grapefruit into thin rounds and place on top and around chicken. Roast for 1.5 hours until golden brown and internal temperature reaches 165°F. Re-glaze after 45 minutes. Serve with pan juices if desired and a side of roasted fennel. www.newscanada.com
