The Health Benefits of Travel

Travelling is definitely one of my favorite things. I have fond memories of family vacations as a child, travelling with girlfriends after high school and now family vacations with my husband and children. Travel has always been incredibly rewarding and enjoyable for me. While it has been generally accepted for centuries that travel and vacations provide time to relax and rejuvenate, more and more research indicates that travelling may also provide long-term health benefits.

I just read this Tibetan saying in a newsletter I subscribe to called Just One Thing: Resources for Happiness, Love and Wisdom.  A beautiful and timely reminder for this time of year when the temptation is to load ourselves up with all sorts of promises of change and resolutions.

When I joined the EOHC team I was incredibly excited that the focus group of clients was in their reproductive years. Everything about getting pregnant, being pregnant and watching families grow is exciting for me.

The challenge is finding practical ways to use this care without adding stress to the already hectic schedule of a new mom.


Once again, Victoria Community Health Co-operative will be offering Yoga in the Park in beautiful Beacon Hill Park this summer. Beginner to Intermediate Hatha Yoga amidst the trees and under the sky, these drop in classes are open to all and will take place Thursdays from 5:30 - 7:00 pm beginning on July 7th and finishing in the second week of September.


This is a beautiful lecture on connection, vulnerability, compassion and living with authenticity.  Really worth the 20min.
