Slow Down and Enjoy

If you are like most people, you are likely very busy with many daily activities. You can easily lose track of how much time you have spent working; at home, at school or at the office. How much time was at a computer or other form of electronics? On average Canadians spend about 11 hours a day looking at screens and only 20 minutes a day outside.

Nature can show – if you let it – that life in Saanich is exhilarating and beautiful.
