Redefining Happiness

Rahim Kanji_portrait 112112

I wanted to write a blog on a topic we all struggle with, and something we ALL want: happiness. It’s that feeling of contentment; a place in your life without internal struggle/pain where life just feels…right! Everyone’s formula for happiness is different. Some want a bit more financial security, some want more love, and yet… Continue Reading →

Spring is almost here! I’m sure many of you, like me, can’t wait until the warmer weather comes our way. This winter has been a true test of patience with all the arctic blasts and polar vortices that have come our way (at least for readers on the east coast!). Spring is a season of… Continue Reading →

How Forgiveness Can Heal

I’m sure you’ve all heard about how healing forgiveness can be. But did you know that there is actual research to show that it extends beyond the mind, and can heal your body too? For example, a group of New York researchers found that cardiac patients who were able to forgive had lower levels of… Continue Reading →

The Journey To The Ideal Body Weight

Rahim Kanji_portrait 112112

We all talk about positive self-image, especially for people who are not of a healthy weight (either overweight or underweight), but in this blog I want to address self-image as it relates to going to the gym when you’re on your way to achieving the coveted “ideal weight.” Somehow we believe that on the journey… Continue Reading →

As they say in Game of Thrones…”winter is coming!” We are in the heart of fall, and as the amount of sunlight changes, it has a dramatic impact on how we feel and our energy levels. It’s normal to want to sleep longer in the winter time and hermit – after all that’s how our… Continue Reading →

A High-Achiever’s Guide To Acceptance

Rahim Kanji_portrait 112112

A well-researched method of dealing with stress and anxiety that I frequently use with patients is mindfulness. It’s a technique of living in the present moment, without clouding it with regrets from the past, or worries of the future – because, the current moment (the “now”) is the only thing we really have. As a… Continue Reading →

How You Start Your Day Matters!

Rahim Kanji_portrait 112112

As a Naturopathic Doctor, I’m always counseling patients on sleep hygiene (what you do 1-2 hours before bed) as it can have a significant impact on your sleep quality and duration. This past winter though, I realized that “sleep hygiene” is important for going to sleep, but “wake up hygiene” is equally important for waking… Continue Reading →

It’s Luck And What You Do With It!

Rahim Kanji_portrait 112112

When I hear stories of the journey of success from my patients, colleagues and friends, there’s a common lesson that appears within all of them. It’s tough to hear, but it’s true: just because someone’s talented does NOT mean they’re going to be successful. Success is guaranteed to those who receive “lucky” opportunities and effectively seize those opportunities…. Continue Reading →

Learning To Listen!

Rahim Kanji_portrait 112112

Have you ever had a friend call you in desperation and after you listened to their story, offering them buckets of reassurance, it feels like you didn’t do enough for them, if anything at all? I have. Now, like you, I’ve also had situations where friends have said how much better they feel after talking… Continue Reading →

Success, Failure and Shame:The Love Triangle!

Rahim Kanji_portrait 112112

We’ve all felt like failures at some point in our lives. Failing at a test, at living up to certain standards, such as being a good parent, friend, employee – or even a failure at life. We know failure happens because we’re human, but yet there can be incredible amounts of shame associated with it…. Continue Reading →

Why I Quit Coffee: A Lesson On Listening To Your Body

Rahim Kanji_portrait 112112

I find a lot of times, patients (including myself) start to lose their mind-body connection when it comes to food. With science supporting the addictive potential of processed foods such as soda and chips, we are starting to not only lose our ability to realize when we are full, but also the ability to realize… Continue Reading →

Mental Vacations: Nourishing The Relationship With Your Self!

Rahim Kanji_portrait 112112

Vacations are important. Living in a big city, I find myself constantly mentally stimulated – at work, walking down the street, and even with my friends (in a good way of course!) The truth is we all need some down time from this stimulation, and I find that a great way to do this is… Continue Reading →
