10 Quick Ways to Get Out of a Bad Mood

The main reason we have trouble extracting ourselves from them more quickly is because we can't shake a bad mood if we're not aware of what's causing it.

Art and Crafts Gallery - East West Organics

We are not just about food! A striking space, our vision is to have meaningful pieces of art on display in the gallery but also in surrounding areas of the complex. There is art to inspire and augment the Natural Health Clinic, but also for you to admire while shopping, eating at the cafe and in amongst the plants. Smaller pieces and local artisan crafts will be available for purchase. Our idea is to support local artists and craftspeople and to offer a platform for the community to enjoy local talent. Workshops and classes in different art modalities are planned for the future and we are exploring the possibilities of having working artists’ studios on site.

If you are interested in exhibiting or running classes, please pop on over to our contact page and get in touch; we would love to hear your ideas.

The Hardest Part Of Traveling No One Talks About

People always talk about leaving, but what about coming home?

Then you return home, have your reunions, spend your first two weeks meeting with family and friends, catch up, tell stories, reminisce, etc. You feel angry.

7 Things to Remember When You Think You’re Not Good Enough

~Lori Deschene Sometimes I am really terrible to myself and relentlessly compare myself to other people, no matter how many times I read or hear about how good enough or lovable I am. On an almost daily basis, I meticulously look for evidence that I am a nobody, that I don’t deserve to be loved, or that I’m not living up to my full potential. There is generally a lot of pressure to “stack up” in our culture. We feel as if there is something wrong with us if, for example, we’re still single by a certain age, don’t make a certain amount of income, don’t have a large social circle, or don’t look and act a certain way in the presence of others.

Sometimes in the midst of all the pressure, I seem to totally forget all the wonderful, unique things about myself. 7 Pictures For Women Who Don't Care What Anyone Thinks Of Them.

The idea, that is. Don’t you love (hate) ideas like that? Just kidding, I really liked this project, really. Rory cut all the wood out and put it together last weekend (I helped!) , and I spent the week painting it. (please ignore our nasty walls…we’re painting them…someday) It’s really simple, two sides, a bottom, sides for a box on the bottom…and a dowel, all screwed together.
