Links to Life

A start…

Whether I want support, education or inspiration, I have favorite sites that continuously serve me well. While I peruse hundreds of blogs and sites, there are some I return to time and time again, and if they can provide you some direction too – AWESOME!!

As well, below I have listed some of the Canadian resources as recommended by our mental health community.

p.s. this page is always a work in progress!

My all-time fave:




First Runner Up:

Marie Forleo:
in particular Marie TV
(watch how she grows her business from older shows to present! Marie is very funny – make sure to see her disco video, usually at the bottom of her website!!)

Second Runner Up:

The Daily Flame: Messages from Your Inner Pilot Light by Lissa Rankin daily flame
Daily email with short inspirational message and quote; samples here; sign up here

Honourable Mentions:

ncludes Brian Johnson’s Philosophers Notes TV (amazing summary of “big Ideas” of hundreds of books!) and Optimal Living 101, both on this youtube link:

Mastin Kipp


The Daily Love (TDL) has re-branded to… the original TDL site was my ‘First Runner Up’ for many years as it used to have awesome guest writers which made it a great “one stop shop” offering a wide perspective. In the re-branding, the blog’s perspective narrowed to be primarily Mastin’s – still hugely valuable, and he has recently re-invigorated his Power + Purpose Podcast series including hugely smart interviews with a fabulous range/caliber of guests!  Mastin may be well back on his way to my Top 2!
You can still visit the old site and here and TDL TV on youtube here (good stuff!)
That’s Mastin and me before kundalini yoga during his Vancouver visit!

Sounds True 
Sounds True has really top-notch content for both consumers and practitioners: it has some of the smartest interviews you will find, predominently because of interviewers like co-founder Tami Simon who just has a knack for asking the questions you and I really want to ask. About 50% of the content is free, and I can find the site hard to navigate sometimes because it is also a store (a good store, with hugely valuable resources/courses!) so the link provided is to the ‘about us’ page, and you can go from there. If you are a coach or therapist, you need to be on this email list for courses.

Mental Health Education and Support


Mental illness is a growing concern in Canada where

one in five people will suffer from mental illness

in their lifetime. If not you, someone you love, or work with.

To encourage the conversation and learn more about mental health, follow the links below.

These sites will connect users to information on mental health and suicide prevention.

Note:  Many of my clients come to me because they are intimidated by the term: mental health, and therefore will not seek any of the resources obviously attached to this label.  I am happy to be a starting point – perhaps, all you need, but please, do not avoid these other valuable resources.  “Mentalsimply means “of or relating to the mind”, it does not signify any realm of “weak” or “crazy” in the eyes of anyone who matters or will be a true support for you. Our minds are simply another component of our bodies which we must take care of for optimal health, like a prostate or a colon – also not favoured topics by some!
Please, when it comes to any health issues that are causing you question, just don’t go it alone.
