The Feel Good Epidemic
Mindfulness at the office, yoga in the classroom, meditation on the TTC: self-care is everywhere, and it’s not going away. Our definitive guide to getting the most out of Toronto’s wellness craze
It’s crazy out there. Deadlines. Bills. Layoffs. Congestion, both road and nasal. That nosy neighbour, texting driver, pushy relative. Angry bosses. Angry employees. Social media. Too much government, yet not enough. A crumbling world order. NORTH KOREA. Okay, listen. We get it. Life has never been more hectic, imperilled or overwhelming. But don’t give up. Toronto, it turns out, is home to as many solutions as causes for your stressed-out existence. And in the pages ahead, we explore the best of those Zen-centric offerings. So whatever your thing is or could be—meditation, yoga, extreme fitness, superfood bingeing or something else— you’ll find it here. We can’t promise world peace. But a little inner calm isn’t a bad first step.
