During this month-long celebration of love, Le Monastère des Augustines invites you to be extra good to yourself. Here are 4 ways of taking care of yourself and cultivating your well-being this February.
Every month, Le Monastère’s Museum Reserve and Archives Centre teams select an object from the Augustinian community’s rich tangible heritage. Featured this month: a lithography which shows Quebec Winter Carnival festivalgoers in the late 19th century.
It goes without saying that “conscious eating”, also called “mindful eating”, is an increasingly popular term in the world of food. Nutritionists and dieticians use the word, which generally refers to having greater individual responsibility for your overall health. It is not just about eating well, but about establishing a healthy relationship with the food we consume. This philosophy has become so well-received that it is sometimes touted as the “new solution” to weight loss. While weight loss may be a direct consequence, the principle of conscious eating cannot be reduced to this single benefit. We invite you to explore the broader meaning of conscious eating by providing you some ways to gradually integrate it into your life.
Peace. This term symbolizes a state of well-being coveted by many people. This can be achieved and maintained by several constant efforts in various forms (meditation, work-life balance, harmonious relationships between couples or friends, etc.).
