York Street Park Design Competition – Vote Now!

Waterfront Toronto in Partnership with Toronto Parks Forestry & Recreation have launched a project to design and build two new parks: York Street Park and the Rees street Park.

Located at the southern foot of York Street, the York Street Park site is approximately 8,000 square metres (2 acres) and sits between the southern extension of the Financial District and the York Quay residential neighbourhood. It will occupy the site of the former York-Bay-Yonge eastbound off-ramp from the Gardiner Expressway, which was removed in 2016-2017.

And you have a chance to shape the design going forward! Just visit http://yorkreesparkdesign.ca/york-street-park/ and fill out a short survey to provide your feedback on your preferred design.

The Great Easter Egg Hunt 2018

Who doesn’t love Free Chocolate?

March the 28th at WaterPark Place, we got to experience the Great Easter Egg Hunt. Hunting down the eggs and following the clues led us on a hunt that explored the building.

And of course, if you found all 12 eggs, you won some free chocolate!

 

If you’re still hunting for those eggs, we have some hints here for you!

Spotlight: Self-care

 

As we approach the New Year, it is important to reflect on personal maintenance – how we take care of ourselves, mind, body and spirit. Sometimes we get so caught up in the daily grind that we don’t take the time to focus on what’s most important; our own well-being. Life is hectic. There is a lot that can be said about our modern lifestyles and the stress that can develop in most of them. We have all experienced situations where we’ve felt overcome by everything we need to accomplish and not enough hours in a day to achieve them. We’ve all pushed ourselves too far at some point, be it for the sake of a job, a project or assignment, or even our families. Whatever lifestyle you lead, we all know it and we’ve all felt it.

The problems come when life gets too hectic for us to maintain a balance of the different areas in our lives, perhaps when we start foregoing things we do for ourselves because you need to do something for others instead. This becomes an issue when we start putting our own well being aside for longer periods of time. When we do this, and our own mental or physical health starts deteriorating, we are not being our best selves. The care we give or the work we do, suffers for it. What this essentially means is, when you are not taking proper care of yourself, you are not taking proper care of your responsibilities either.

Recognise that sometimes we must forego some things to achieve a greater goal, but this should only be acceptable for a set amount of time. Often what happens is we get to that goal, but then another task pops up, and we stretch ourselves a little thinner for a little longer. Suddenly we’re not just missing out on that visit to the gym or rain-checking a time to catch up with friends, we stop having time for dinner with the family and sleep has been reduced to 4 hours a night. When was the last time you did something enjoyable, just for the sake of your own happiness and sanity? When was the last time you put something aside to give yourself a moment of clarity?

Some people are better at handling this stress than others. It is a growing trend that some companies are better at promoting self-care than others; encouraging working from home and taking mental health days to recharge our minds. We could all use a reminder every once in a while. Your most important asset is YOU, and taking care of your most valuable asset is imperative. This coming year, take some time to reflect on your health, your priorities and set yourself up for a healthy and productive 2018.
