MEMBER PROFILE - Meet Marilyn...

Beyond is thrilled to profile Marilyn, one of our dedicated and inspirational members. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on why you are passionate about wellness with the Beyond community and for the wonderful daily quotes you provide for our blackboard!

Why am I passionate about wellness?...

Wellness offers me a wonderful  tool that supports me in coping with the cards life deals me ...  physically, emotionally and spiritually. In spite of the fact that  I have cancer and heart disease, I am still able to celebrate and  honour so many parts of my body that are still functioning properly  because of my focus on wellness and its benefits... do I want to die  living or live dying?

I have proven in the six years that I have  been focusing on exercise in particular that the physical and  emotional strength that I have gained has helped me like I would not  have believed to be possible. I am proving daily that exercise is  medicine...

"Wellness is not merely the absence of disease but a state of COMPLETE physical, mental and social well being."

"The state of being in good health especially as an actively pursued goal."

"An approach to health care that emphasizes preventing illness and prolonging life."

YOGA BEYOND WORDS with Cara-Lynne 
Get Out!

Ah, there is nothing like winter in Ottawa.  So far, this winter, not only have we repeatedly been the coldest capital on the planet (not the contest one wants to win), many days it has actually been colder here than it is on Mars.  I always heard one couldn't actually live on Mars, but yet here we are.

*Not here, this is Mars...where apparently some days have been quite balmy compared to our winter.

Now I am an outdoor girl.  I grew up in the Ottawa Valley with an outdoor rink, lots of snow and a wind-whipped bus stop, but I will be honest, when that mercury drops below a certain temperature I do not want to leave my cozy house for anything.  Our winter is even more draggy as the days when the sun shines it is cold enough to take your breath away, and the more livable, milder days are grey, damp and dreary.  And then if you are like me, you obsessively check the Weather Network who is always trying to incite our panic.

TEA TIDBITS with Tea by G

This month's tea tidbit spotlights...
The Do's & Don'ts of Tea Storage !

The flavour quality of your cup of tea depends on how it is stored.  Read below for best practices of storing your loose leaf tea.

Your loose leaf tea is vulnerable to light, air, moisture and heat.  Did you know that although your loose leaf tea looks and feels dry, it still holds approximately 2-3% moisture along with the volatile oils that are crucial to your teas flavour profile?  As such, to protect your tea, it should be stored with care.  Here are a few storage do's and don'ts ...
