Staying Sane in a Digital COVID-19 World

Before COVID-19, one could easily make the argument that we spend too much time online. However, now online connections have become not just a tool to connect, but a safe way to do so. Many people I talk to say, “You know Doc, I spend more time in Zoom meetings than I ever did in boardroom meetings.” Then when they want to talk with friends, they go back…

The Secrets to Living a Fantastic Life

Are you finding fulfillment in your life? We are amid a Global Pandemic, the likes we have not seen for over 100 years. It is understandable if your life is not filled with joy every single day. In 2003, I experienced the scariest moment of my life and was faced with my mortality. There is nothing like facing the very real fact you could die. I empathize with…

Are You on the Right Path?

Many spiritualities have signs to look out for that signify you are on the right life path. Some see déjà vu as being an example. Others would say seeing certain animals or rare celestial sights, like a falling star, is the universes way of showing you are on the right track. These barometers may mean different things to different people, but I would like to look at some other checkpoints that can show you are…

Four Toxic Behaviours to Avoid

I watched a fascinating video recently. I came away from it wondering, how can I be a better person? I want to echo its sentiments and look at behaviours we have that can be toxic, and how we can work to remove them from our lives. Though we often want to see ourselves as the good guy, we have our faults as well.   Scapegoating  …

The Ins and Outs of Empathy

I’d like to make an argument in favour of a more empathetic world. I believe if we understood the value of showing others empathy, the world would be much more prosperous for all. By understanding what empathy is, what it isn’t, and how it is beneficial to you, the world will shine a little brighter. And if everyone was more empathetic, humanity would see a much healthier world.   What is Empathy?  Empathy differs from…

Dealing with Uncertainty in a COVID-19 World

It is human nature to want to understand the world around us, however sometime we simply cannot. If you know someone with anxiety, they may be able to tell you about the mental anguish of not knowing can cause. Indeed, I think we all have a little of that right now. Will I lose my job? How will I feed my family? Am I sick? The unknown…
