Mind, Body & Soul – 3 Wellness Options in Barrie

Pure Vibes by Christina

Think all water is the same? Think again!

Pure Vibes by Christina provides (among other wellness options) water based filtration and treatments that boost your energy and heal your body.

Among their living water options are ionized alkaline, which is an excellent source of healthful hydration. This makes water easier to drink, and you avoid that feeling of being “bloated” which is common with other types of water.

Beyond water, they offer botanical beauty workshops and health and wellness seminars.

Energizing people though these approaches is at the core of Pure Vibe’s wellness philosophy.

What’s your energy like? Check it!⁠ ⁠ I’ve been described as an energetic person, even at my sickest. All that envelopes my wellness philosophy is tied to energy. Even my personality-type profile is “ENERGIZER.” Talk about being defined by something! ⁠ ⁠ When I started to drink my amazing water back in 2018, my energy shifted so much that clients were approaching me and asking me what I’m doing differently. My chiropractor, integrated medical team, and others couldn’t believe the shift. Energy is a marker you just cannot hide.⁠ ⁠ So, grab some “living water,” learn about how hydrogen is essential to fuel us and heal us, how water can be measured in millivolts, and how you can plug into some additional energy.⁠ ⁠ Change always starts with education and information. Take in the research, learn, then APPLY it to gain wisdom. Until you put into application what you learn, you remain stagnant.⁠ ⁠ What have you learned lately to improve ENERGY? Share your comments below.⁠

Do you suffer from #Cravings ? . . The upside of craving is that it is a conditioned response that you can unlearn . . Here are a few of my top tips to reduce cravings : . . 💫 Start identifying why that craving is coming on- are you ACTUALLY hungry? Are you bored? Are you feeling another emotion ? . . 💫 Use the 5 second rule to stop thinking about a craving (ie. when you are craving sweet or salty, count backwards from 5 , and re evaluate that craving afterwards) . . 💫 #MOVE – march in place, do some squats, or walk up the stairs . . 💫 Get a herbal tea that you love (or have some warm water with lemon) . . 💫 Make sure that your blood sugar levels are balanced (your body often craves sugar when it is crashing ) . . 💫 Work with a naturopathic doctor to ensure your #stress levels are managed, rule out any deficiencies & ensure that you are getting a proper #sleep. . . . #naturopathicdoctor #naturopathicmedicine #ndbarrie #naturopath #wellness #barrienaturopath #wellwomentribe #sugarcravings #womenshealth #healthyhormones #hormonebalance #balanceyourhormones #exercise #moveyourbody #sugar #sugarcravings

Modular By Design is a company who could help Barrie small businesses and restaurants. They have a module design that can fit into any space, outside or inside. You can create a private bubble from a table for four up to, well whatever size you want. These are still worrying COVID days even with a vaccine on the horizon, and it will be months before we see the improvement in the economy. In the future, it might be, to some degree, the new normal. Every business has different space constraints.
