A QUIET PL ACE
If Toronto suddenly seems more Zen, it’s thanks to the recent uptick of meditation and wellness spaces like Mindset Brain Gym (62 Cumberland St.), Good Space (360 Dufferin St.) and Soul 7 (17 Yorkville Ave.). Out of town? Try alternate-nostril breathing, says Emily Thring, founder and director of The Quiet Company (511 King St. W.). Hillary Clinton is a fan of the mindfulness technique and used it after the last American election. Plug your left nostril and inhale through your right nostril, then, holding that breath, plug your right nostril and exhale through your left nostril. Repeat for a few minutes or until you achieve the chill perspective of Will Smith on Instagram—whichever comes first.
