Mill Creek Ravine Edmonton.jpg

As we approach winter our beautiful long days shorten and typically our energy levels drop. We become lethargic and unmotivated. Here are 3 simple steps to make sure you stay that awesome, upbeat person you are. 1) Spend time outside regardless of how cold and cloudy it is.

That opportunity came about over a lunch meeting in July 2012 with Brett Kirkland and Chris Tse. It started with a workout … [Read more...]
