Podcast Prep!

Hello HIH family, Chloe Wilde here! 

I am very excited to share that we have been working hard behind-the-scenes on a special project that will share our sentiment that healthy is f*cking beautiful to the masses, through a PODCAST. That’s right, now you’ll be able to soak up HIH magic while walking to work, out on a jog, running errands or stuck on public transit. 

So... what can you get excited about?

My go-to podcasts for inspiration, beauty news, and guilty pleasure

I know I’m late to the game on this one, but I’m obsessed with podcasts. Friends have been telling me for the last couple of years to check them out and for one reason or another, it took me until last fall to actually download the app and dive in. Now that I have, I’m officially a podcast junkie, and listen to them constantly. Driving to work? Podcast. Taking transit downtown? Podcast. Making dinner? Podcast. You get the picture.

So, in the spirit of my new found love affair, here are a couple of my favourites!

The Power of a Photo | Helen Tansey

When I was pregnant with my first child 11 years ago, a spinner of mine offered me a photo shoot with Helen Tansey as a ‘baby gift’.  Little did I know this encounter would result in me meeting a person that would become a dear friend of mine whilst capturing some of the most beautiful moments in my life.  Helen Tansey is a photographer.  She works out of a quaint little studio in Toronto, and has a warm and loving energy that makes you feel instantly at ease in her presence.  Helen is well known for head shots, pregnancy/family shoots and is hired for offsite shoots as well.  Within the last couple of years she took on a new project that really moved me.  She created a series of photo essays called Sundari Woman to chronicle the beauty of the natural aging process of women over 40.  She uses the art of photography to capture a moment that exudes true pure beauty, and makes her subjects feel special and beautiful.  In a time where women have come so far in fighting for their rights in the workplace, within politics and to be treated as equals, Helen showcases the true natural beauty that comes with aging.  I wanted our readers to meet this brilliantly talented Toronto photographer, so I invited her to share parts of her journey with all of us.

Spotlight on Cheryl Torrance: Hero of Happiness

I often find myself wondering, what is happiness?  Pleasure. Satisfaction. Joviality.  Enjoyment. Bliss.  Well-being. We all seem to be on a quest for a state of happiness and so I thought I would kick off the year by spotlighting a person who embodies that word for me.  Meet Cheryl Torrance aka my Hero of Happiness.  For all those who have the chance to cross her path, you leave any interaction with her feeling lighter, happier and energized.  Cheryl just turned 50 and I thought sharing her journey with our HIH readers would bring all of us closer to understanding how we can achieve the state of happiness we all want so badly.
