Eating Healthy Keeps You Feeling Great!


Your body does so much different stuff: thinking, moving, talking, creating, and so much more... But to do its job well, it needs fuel! That means eating and drinking the right kinds of foods and drinks. That’s what “nutrition” is all about! To learn more about healthy eating, check out the Nutrition page on LifeStreams.ca!
 

Check out this video from our GH Options staff, Maria! Maria is a Registered Nutritionist, and in this video she shares some awesome tips on how we can be more mindful of what we eat!

July 30th is the International Day of Friendship!



Lots of countries have days that celebrate friends, but the International Day of Friendship is July 30th. People around the world love to connect in all sorts of ways, and one of the simplest (and best) ways is friendship. A friend is someone you share things with; that can mean anything from doing fun activities together to talking about difficult feelings. The world always needs more friends!

Covid Update

Dr. Bonnie Henry has recently announced a plan for BC to return to "normal life" within the next few months! While this is very exciting news, we need to remember to follow the guidelines each step of the way. Right now this includes wearing a mask when required (if we are able to put it on ourselves), washing our hands often (for 20 seconds!), keeping our bubbles small and staying 6 feet apart! 

The more we do now to keep ourselves and each other safe, the sooner we will get back to doing the activities we love!
