Gardening is the second most popular activity (behind walking) in Canada and it’s even more fun if you share it with a child! Sharing the fun of gardening gives you a friend with the same interests and provides a child with a hobby that can last a lifetime. Kids love dirt and are fascinated by what they find while digging, so it's a wonderful opportunity to teach your children about nature and the environment.
Spring Break is on its way and your kids will be out of school before you know it. If your palms are clammy at the thought of an entire week filled with empty days and you dread the choruses of “I’m bored” that will start approximately five minutes after the bell has rung, the Calgary Downtown Association has compiled a list of great thing to do rain or shine.
March and April can be the cruelest of months. The sun shines brilliantly through your windows promising warmer days ahead, but you are met at the door with an icy blast; this is Mother Nature’s way of telling you that even though the calendar says it’s spring, Old Man Winter is not finished playing with you just yet.
Balancing out life’s stresses is essential for maintaining your sanity. To help you maintain the hectic pace of your life, you need to regenerate regularly, not just one day a year. The best and easiest way to regenerate is to find your own special place to relax and remove yourself from the world. Maybe for you that’s a stolen hour in the middle of the day for coffee with friends, some time at a club or spa, reading a great book or simply taking a walk.
