Four-day work weeks are great. Having Friday off is amazing. No one talks about the week after a long weekend. It’s rough. Most of my patients were not feeling their best. Everyone seemed to need a little pep talk. If you felt like you were dragging too, do these things to perk yourself right up again.

I admit, kale chips sound like something only a health food nut would enjoy. Not so, dear skeptic! They are yummy, crunchy, salty and satisfying. As well as being a source of iron and fibre! It’s a win win. Your body’s happy and so are your taste buds.
Nutrition coach Jessica has added a dip recipe. I’d probably finish eating the chips before I made the dip. But, she has more discipline than I do. You probably do too. So try the dip!
I always tout the benefits of keeping things simple in order to reduce daily stress. However, when I opened my practice two years ago and decided to practise in two locations, I neglected to take my own advice.
