Floating Thru the Holidays

We are a couple days into the new year already and it’s hard to believe it is already 2022! I’m back to my 9-5 tomorrow after a 10 day staycation which was well needed and appreciated. I spent some time cooking, baking, streaming, floating in a a decompression chamber, decluttering and reading. It was my priority to accomplish some tasks but also spend time doing things I enjoy.

Items that I baked: gingerbread cake with maple cashew sauce (not pictured), chocolate truffle pie, and chocolate pumpkin seed cookies. For cooking, outside of a Christmas meal, I made roasted kale & sweet potato soup and tofu taco dip. All of it was so delicious!

The only book I completed was “The Every” which I recommend if you are fascinated with the future. It’s a sequel to the “The Circle” which was made into a movie a couple years ago. It was a fascinating and slightly terrifying look at life where all decisions are made for us by AI and giant corporations.

I also was sure to watch a bunch of Christmas movies, especially my favourites: The Holiday (Jack Black & Kate Winslet are so wholesome) and Klause (on Netflix). Between the Christmas and the New Year, I also made sure to catch the new Disney movie Encanto which was wonderful!

Lastly, my spouse and I took time to go on a “date” and spend time at a new business in Yellowknife called Cetana. We spent 90 minutes floating in sensory deprivation pods which was insanely relaxing and helped soothe some achy muscles. I highly recommend! This was my second float and I hope to go back again soon.
(I actually photographed this business recently, as I shared on Instagram, for a project. It’s a really cool place and I was honoured to showcase this cool new place!)

What did you do over the holiday season? Were you able to find time for you or things you enjoy? Comment below.


  1. I spent time with the kids, which was nice. It’s been a long time since 100% of my focus was on them and not work as well. I too, did a float! It’s so relaxing and a great way to 100% take time for yourself.
