• How To Practice Yoga, On A Budget

    Apr 23, 2018

    Yoga is a close second behind cats as the most searched topic on the internet. And while yoga may be a simple, modest practice at heart, it can come with a steep price; one that many average practitioners can’t afford. To help you get your OM on without burning through your cash or karma, Timbercreek has a few tips that will help you keep up your practice on a budget.

    Yoga at Home

    Doing yoga at home is kind of the best solution when you're on a budget. It’s free and you can progress at your own pace without judgement or pressure from handstand-happy instructors. However, like going to the gym, doing it yourself can be tricky. Not everyone has space for yoga. And while you don’t need tons of gear, you can’t really do it on a bare floor. Plus there’s the whole motivation thing. Half of the entire reason people go to gyms is they won’t workout when left to their own devices. It takes getting out sometimes, and also other people for support. So, while yoga at home is a great option, be aware of the pitfalls. You can also turn to YouTube yogis for free classes, programs and motivation -- check out Tara Stiles or Yoga with Adrienne. Read more.

    Yoga in the Park

    In the late spring and summer months (even into the fall), park yoga can be a hit. Next to yoga at home, park yoga is perfect. Its cheap, easy, has low gear needs (grass is soft), and there's tons of space for your flying crow pose. Keep in mind that there’ll be people gawking. Learn more.

    Community Centre

    Your local community centre might offer yoga classes and drop in sessions for little to no cost. They generally offer classes and memberships at a fraction of the cost of your local gym or studio.

    Friends and Favours

    Yoga teachers are everywhere in 2018. With this comes the potential for low-cost private classes. Or invites to group classes taught by newly minted instructors looking for experience. You can even comb Craigslist for teachers. Try bartering. Or offer an instructor something in return for a class or two. See more.

    Group Practice

    One of the best motivators and ways to practice on a budget is to set up a group. Find like-minded folks, or see if you can convince your friends to start a yoga day at someone’s house. Meetups and other online communities are also great resources. Learn more.

    Volunteer

    Volunteering has long been a way to get a foot in the door where you want to work. Poll the myriad studios close to you and see if you can offer to help them out in exchange for free classes. All the better if you have a specialty skill they can make use of.

  • Bachelor Space Planning, Separating Your Room From Living Area

    Apr 17, 2018

    When it comes to apartment decor, working with a small space can be a challenge. When there's only so much space to fill, its best to combine design and functionality, and to carve out distinct areas of the space for different uses. If you want to plan out a beautiful bachelor apartment space, Timbercreek has some ideas that will help you divide and conquer small apartment.

    iStock-507253220

    Bookcases

    The #1 choice for dividing a room into sections creatively is bookcases. There are myriad styles and options to choose from -- from see-through to solid, half height to full ceiling. They can be modular and mobile, or custom built for your apartment.  Learn more.

    IKEA Wardrobe

    A see-through IKEA wardrobe works nicely as a room divider. Look for one that has a few bells and whistles like drawers and shelves and levels so it looks a little less like a rolling hanger and more like a dream organizer. Overall it’s a great divider, and functional too.

    Paper Screen

    While at first glance, a paper screen is a student-like answer to adding size and separation to a room, its actually a great option for anyone in a small space. They come in a huge variety of styles, colors, and price points. Generally at the lower end (especially in comparison to shelving and custom installations), they’re a quick and easy fix for separating rooms in a bachelor layout.

    Steel Mesh Wall Garden

    A bit more permanent, this option entails wall mesh which is essentially a metal grid of squares, mounted 90 degrees from a wall, about 1-2 feet out from it. Be careful to attach it either to the ceiling or floor. The mesh provides a visual separation in a small space and when combined with hanging plants it offers some eye (and air) pleasing greenery.

    Hanging Garden

    A more DIY green wall approach is a garment rack garden. Grab one from Walmart, and instead of using it for clothes, outfit it with hanging plants. It adds division, lets light through, and offers a “living wall” vibe, bringing a splash of green to your space. Learn more.

    Couch

    An efficient and budget conscious option is using your couch and/or TV as a room divider. While not all apartment layouts allow for it, placing your couch between your bedroom and TV gives a bit of separation, especially when combined with a bookshelf, screen, or other aforementioned divider.

  • Plant Your Apartment Herb Garden

    Apr 16, 2018

    An herb garden is a perfect edible DIY project. It's amazing that it needs just a sliver of space to exist but will offer you months of fresh herbs to enhance your recipes. With both constant temperatures and consistent light (hopefully), indoor gardens have less to contend with than their outdoor counterparts, and can produce year-round results. To help you plant your own DIY herb garden, Timbercreek has a few tips.

    Start out Safe

    Where you locate your garden isn’t just a sun-question. Make sure it’s in a place people (including yourself) won’t bump into it, knock it over, or just take up valuable counter space. Outfit your garden in a spot that’ll be protected, so as not to get annihilated by a grocery bag, backpack, cat paw, or dish.

    iStock-515438480

    Structure

    The simplest option is loading up a number of individual pots with herbs. A better approach is the rectangular plastic or tin trough-type containers that hold a number of different plants together. With this, the soil benefits from the combined species and they can all be watered at once. Another possibility is a bookshelf-style garden with multiple levels holding different pots. They all work. The key here is being creative with your particular space.  

    Good Sun

    You’ll need to know how much sun your plants will need, and what they’ll get based on your windows and orientation. Most vegetables do best in 6+ hours of full sun. Some greens and herbs are happy with less. Surrounding buildings or trees can block the sun, and your orientation usually means there are very specific sun-soaked hours. Check to make sure you hit the minimum for the type of plants you want before you buy seedlings.

    Gearing Up

    You'll need the basic garden essentials:

    1. Pots: The size can vary depending on what you're growing, but make sure there's enough depth for roots to fully develop. Shoot for 8" in diameter.

    2. Soil: Generally easy to find at garden centers or hardware stores. Pick up a mix that's formulated for containers, not the garden soil variety.

    3. Plants: Farmers markets are a great local source for herb and vegetable seedlings. Again, hardware and garden stores normally have a decent selection as well.

    4. Extras: A trowel, watering can, mister (old windex bottle), and fertilizer. Learn more.

    Start with Seedlings

    No matter what you're growing, buy your herbs as seedlings, not seeds. Growing plants from scratch is actually way harder, especially with a small space and the average person’s time constraints. Go for established toddler herbs and veg from a farmers market or nursery. You'll get edible results much sooner and with less work. Learn more.

    Best for Beginners

    Basil is a great starter herb. It grows well, smells great, and tastes even better. It also lets you know right away if you’re watering enough - a good tell-tale for the rest of the garden. Other excellent starter herbs are chives, scallions, cilantro, mint (which grows like crazy, so be aware), as well as leafy greens (spinach, lettuce, arugula). Small tomatoes and hot peppers are good options too. Learn more.

    Timbercreek hopes these tips help you plant a killer indoor herb garden. For more information about Timbercreek Communities in your city, please visit our website.

  • Why Montreal is a Great City for Millennials

    Mar 21, 2018

    Montreal is a great city for millennials. If you were born between 1978 and 1994, Timbercreek wants you to know why now is the perfect time to call Montreal home.

    Affordable Rent

    Unlike some of Canada’s other major cities (like Toronto and Vancouver), Montreal boasts quite affordable rental rates. The average rental in Montreal in 2018 costs approximately $950, a stark contrast to a city like Toronto where most one bedrooms go for $1800. Finding a home that works with your budget is easy, and not spending your entire paycheck on your apartment is totally doable. That extra cash comes in handy because the city lacks nothing in terms of great food and entertainment. Boasting a ton of outstanding restaurants, cafes, bars, and events, Montreal is a vibrant city that never sleeps. It’s perfect for millennials who don’t either.

    Great Neighbourhoods

    There are so many great neighbourhoods to call home in Montreal, we could write a whole article on just that! Timbercreek has several residential communities across the city that are ideal for millennials. Our communities are located in some of Montreal’s most sought after neighbourhoods. Our favourites include Mosaique which is located in downtown Montreal in the heart of the entertainment district, near Place d’Armes metro station. It’s an amazing neighbourhood to call home because it is always buzzing with great public events and concerts. It’s also close to beautiful landmarks and architecture like Place d’Armes Square, beautiful Notre Dame Basilica, and colourful Palais de Congres. It’s even a stonesthrow to great shopping and entertainment at Complexe Desjardins. Our community at Le 1436 Mackay, in Ville Marie, is a great home base for young people pursuing their postsecondary and graduate education. It’s located in downtown Montreal, close to McGill and Concordia. It’s also close to great restaurants and cafes, and incredible shopping on Saint-Catherine Street and Sherbrooke Street. Another excellent community for millennials is The Horizon Tower on Avenue des Pins. Located a short walk from beautiful Mount Royal, this property is conveniently located in Montreal’s Golden Square Mile neighbourhood near McGill. The area that boasts great restaurants, art galleries, exciting nightlife and serene nature.

    LGBTQ-Friendly

    Did you know that 20% of millennials identify as LGBTQ? Montreal is incredibly LGBTQ-friendly, making it a great place to call home. The Village, Montreal's gay district, is one of the largest in the world. It’s jam packed with clubs, restaurants and bars. Centrally located between St-Hubert, Ontario, Papineau and René-Lévesque Boulevard, it is right in the heart of the action. Its main street is Saint-Catherine. In the summer the street is transformed into an amazing pedestrian-only area (from June to September). You can’t miss it as it is draped with colourful boughs of balls (pink and rainbow) hung high above the street.

    World Class Education

    Montreal boasts some of Canada’s finest universities and colleges which attract students from around the globe for postsecondary and graduate level education.You can study almost any subject in this amazing city. The most notable institutions includeMcGill UniversityConcordia UniversityUniversité de MontréalUniversité de QuébecÉcole PolytechniqueLaSalle CollegeVanier College, and HEC Montreal

    Music, Nightlife & Festivals

    Montreal is famous for outstanding music, nightlife and festivals. Unlike other Canadian cities that basically hibernate in winter, Montreal loves to party all year long with huge outdoor events like IgloofestMontreal En Lumiere, and Nuit Blanche in the winter, just to name a few.  In warmer months, there’s even more to check out and every weekend packs something fun like Osheaga, the Montreal Jazz FestJFLPiknic ElectronikPride MontrealTaste MTL, and the Montreal Beer Festival.

    Montreal is an amazing city for millennials. Timbercreek hopes this list showed you just how great it is to live in Montreal. For more information aboutTimbercreek Communitiesin Montreal, please visit ourwebsite.

  • How Often You Should Wash Everything In Your Home, According To Science

    Mar 20, 2018

    Cleaning your home is no joke -- you should do it right or what's the point? But what's right is not always clear. Timbercreek wants to help you make your home sparkle, so here's the truth about how often you should wash everything in your home, according to science.

    iStock-623684514

    Starting with Sleep

    Where do we spend 20 some-odd years over a lifetime? In bed. Science says wash your sheets and pillowcases once a week. Most bacteria on sheets comes from interior dust, but add in dirt, oils, and sweat from a human during sleep and you can promote skin irritation, dandruff, acne etc. Wash your sheets in hot water every 1-2 weeks to be safe.

    Doorknobs

    Doorknobs accumulate a lot of bacteria. Think of how often you touch them. Now think of what you do before you touch them. Now think of how often you clean them? Science says? Doorknobs actually don’t need super frequent washing. However, doorknobs in the bathroom and the kitchen gather more bacteria. Disinfect them once a week. Shoot for once a month for the rest of the house.

    Sinks

    Even if they look clean sinks are gross. Disgustingly (though not surprisingly), bathroom sinks accumulate fecal matter. Also, E.Coli, Salmonella, and other food bacteria can contaminate the kitchen sink. Especially if you’ve been handling raw meat or eggs. Science says? To be safe, aim for a daily sink wipe down.

    Rugs and Floors

    Rugs are natural accumulators of grime. Dirt, dust, food, pet hair, allergens, pollen like to get cozy in rug fibers. Between that and the nooks and crannies of the average floor, you get a massive potential for build up.  Science says? Vacuum weekly, and give hard flooring a good wash once every couple of weeks.

    Bathrooms

    Bathrooms: the ultimate bacteria host. E Coli can be found within six feet of the toilet and in the sink. It’s key to thoroughly clean your toilet and sink at least once a week.  Bathtubs aren’t far off, but can be done every two. Shower curtains should be disinfected weekly to avoid mildew and odors.

    Towels

    Bath and kitchen hand towels get loaded with bacteria. And if your towels don’t fully dry (like, pretty much always), that bacteria can grow. While a lot for the average person, science recommends swapping out bath towels every other day. Kitchen towels can be washed weekly, unless you used it after handling raw meat.

    Kitchen and cleaning sponges

    Kitchen sponges accumulate billions of bacteria on every square inch. And though most of it isn’t harmful, science recommends dropping them into boiling water or the microwave for 2 minutes every couple of days. Check out more here.

    Timbercreek hopes these tips help you manage your cleaning routine and stay healthy in the process. For more information about Timbercreek Communities in your city, please visit our website.

  • The Best Pets For Apartments

    Mar 13, 2018

    While apartment living can often mean no pets or small pets only, there are actually a number of great options for apartment-friendly pets. To help you find your next apartment-friendly little buddy, Timbercreek brings you this list of perfect pets for apartment living.

    Lap Dogs

    Small dogs are well suited to apartments. Much more so than large dogs like Shepherds and Labs. Look for breeds like Pugs, Shih Tzus, Chihuahuas, Bichon Frises, or Boston/Yorkshire/West Highland Terriers. These breeds also tend to be hypoallergenic and/or non-shedding, which is great for small spaces. Read more.

    iStock-857057270

    Cats

    Cats are really are great apartment pets. All they need is a litter box and food to thrive. They can take care of themselves, be left alone, don’t need much attention, and will find mice if you forget to feed them. Read more.

    Hamsters + Guinea Pigs

    While technically a rodent, hamsters are the pet store poster child. A close relative, guinea pigs are non-rodential, but still similar in terms of size and needs. Both are great small-space pets. They require regular feeding, water, cleaning, and exercise, but they’re otherwise a perfect, gentle, easy going pet. Check it out.

    Budgies + Parakeets

    If it’s songs and squaking you enjoy, a Parakeet might be for you. A friendly, tiny, and noisy little pet that’s perfect for apartments, Budgies (Budgerigars, actually) are from the Parrot family. They’ll fairly easy to care for, can eat fruit and vegetables in addition to birdseed, and will sit on your finger once they get used to you. See more here.

    Fish

    There may be no pet with more gear and paraphernalia than fish. Tanks, stones, plants, structures, hides, cleaners, oxygenators, food, lights -- fish come with a lot of baggage. That being said, they’re perfect for apartments. Once set up, they only require feeding once to twice daily, and a tank clean maybe once a month. Check our more.

    Rabbits

    Rabbits are often not top of mind for aspiring pet owners, but they're super cuddly and great for apartments. They’re cute, require little more than a guinea pig, and can be trained to use a litter box. Kinda cool, in addition to the fact that they’ll also train to walk on a leash. Learn more.

    Timbercreek hopes this list helps you pick the perfect pet for your apartment. For more information about our pet friendly Timbercreek Communities in your city, please visit our website.

  • Petiquette 101: How to Crate Train a Puppy

    Feb 26, 2018

    Crate training is an excellent way to welcome a new puppy and start its education and adjustment right away. A crate is a puppy’s dedicated place. A safe, secure nest that’s all his/her own. It has a number of uses beyond this from potty training, to time outs and resting, as well as discipline. To help you navigate the big job of training a new puppy, Timbercreek brings you this list of ways to crate train your furry friend.

    iStock-889008808

    Bars Aren’t Bad

    On first look, the bars on a dog crate seem awfully cage-like. But your pup doesn’t see it that way. He/She sees a warm, cozy cave where he/she feels comfortable to sleep in safety. It’s also a puppy’s own private spot. While dogs do well carving out their own nooks and territory, they generally have to share a house or apartment with their owners. A crate comes in handy in this regard to give them a place that no one else can use.

    Prep for Your New Pup

    Before bringing a new puppy home, make some preparations. Start with the right sized crate. Ideally the puppy should have room for a bed and water bowl, and be able to stand up, turn around, and lie down. If possible, also get a blanket that smells of the mother dog, and place it inside the crate. The familiar smell will be a huge source of comfort.

    Where to Put the Crate

    Crate location is important. Your dog wants to feel connected and included, but also have a  place where it’s quiet enough to rest. A great spot is the corner of a living room or den, where he/she can see the family but have space of his/her own. A laundry room or basement isn’t ideal for this reason as he/she may feel isolated and act out.

    Not Too Long

    Keep your pup’s crate time short and sweet. Start with a few minutes, gradually building up the time. Once he’s/she’s happy and settled down, be careful not to leave him/her in it too long. Avoid leaving even older dogs unattended in a crate for more than four hours at a time. It isn’t fair to your best buddy, who may start to resent the crate rather than love it.

    Don’t let it be for discipline only

    Most would-be pet owners assume a crate is used for sleep, and discipline. And while it can be used to good effect to this end, it foremost should be a place your dog enjoys. Using it to positively reinforce behaviour is a better tactic to take.

    Dos and Don’ts

    DO: Encourage the pup to explore the crate. This means hiding tasty treats and special toys inside for him/her to discover.
    DON’T: Force the puppy inside.
    DO: Praise him/her when he/she sits inside without crying.
    DON’T: Let him/her out when he’s/she’s crying, as this rewards the noise and makes him/her more likely to cry in future.
    DO: Very slowly extend the amount of time pup is left inside the crate.
    DON’T: Use the crate as a place of punishment or leave him/her in for hours on end. Check out more here.

    Timbercreek hopes that this list helps you welcome home your new puppy and start off his/her training the right way. For more information about Timbercreek Communities in your city, please visit our website.

  • In Between Seasons Décor, From Winter To Spring!

    Feb 21, 2018

    Post-Christmas winter is a bit of a grey area for decor. You still want to be cozy and warm, but Spring is on the horizon so you don’t want to feel, well, too hot and boxed in come April. February is a fantastic time to embrace the Danish design concept of Hygge! It translates as a feeling of contentment and coziness, and it’s a great source of inspiration for between-seasons decor. Hygge style can bring warmth to your home in the darkest months of the year, without being overbearing or inappropriate for Spring. Timbercreek brings you this simple list of ways to keep your space cozy and delightful as the seasons change.


    iStock-523480178

    Bask in the Glow

    The lighting in your home can make a huge difference in the intimacy and warmth of the space. Natural light is ideal for daytime, while adding a cozy glow at night can be very comforting. Try to have multiple light sources in every room -- aim for a handful. Use a mix of table lamps, floor lamps, task lamps, and overhead lighting. Warmer light bulbs offer the coziest ambience.

    Comforting Mementos

    Increase the comfort factor in your space with your favorite photos of loved ones, antiques, or art that inspires you. Everything from special mementos to simple things that make you smile add charm.

    Textures

    One of the best ways to warm up a space is by incorporating a variety of different textures. Incorporate different touch-worthy materials like pillows, drapery, throw blankets, rugs, lamps, and furniture. Velvet, woven, knit, embroidered, grain sack, faux fur, tweed: the sky’s the limit. If you want to easily transition the look from winter to spring, stick mainly to neutrals but add a touch of bright colour here and there.

    A Cozy Nook

    Make yourself a special cozy place to relax in your space. Couches and sofa chairs can be tucked into an inviting corner, alongside some good books in a basket, a warm lamp, a footstool, side table, and a soft blanket. A space like this is great to retreat to year-round.

    Add Some Life

    A room comes to life with the addition of an organic element. Every room can benefit from a plant, bouquet of flowers, or even a sprig of greenery like eucalyptus. Read more here.

    Timbercreek hopes that this list helps you keep your home warm and cozy through the remainder of the winter months, and easy to transition to Spring. For more information about Timbercreek Communities in your city, please visit our website.

  • Fun Family Day Ideas

    Feb 13, 2018

    Family Day, a day for the little things, like hanging out with parents and grandparents, playing with your kids, seeing cousins, and otherwise making time for those most important people in your life. It’s also a small miracle during February, the “cruelest” month of the year, when Easter break is still months away. With this in mind, Timbercreek brings you a list of ideas for things to do on Family Day weekend this year.

    Snowsports

    Whether it’s skiing or snowboarding, snowshoeing or tobogganing, skating or snowmobiling, there’s a winter activity out there to suit every locale and taste.  And yes, snowman making and snowball fights count too.

    A Walk in the Park

    Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t get outside. Every city in Canada has a quality park (or collection of them) worth strolling through on family day. Lace up your boots, throw on a parka, and get outside.

    See a Movie

    Perhaps #1 in the collective mind for a family day event, going to the movies is the perfect holiday hang. Get a jump on this popular activity by buying tickets online. Click here to find out what’s premiering in February.

    Art for Art’s Sake

    Whether you hate art or love it, galleries are guaranteed at the very least to be cool buildings to explore. They generally boast interesting architecture, history, art, fun and often free activities for kids, and a restaurant or cafe where you can grab breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    Concert

    While tricky to find genres and bands that satisfy the entire family’s musical tastes, a concert is a great way to enjoy some culture with the family. The symphony, an opera, or a ballet performance are also good options.

    See a Play

    From indie theatre to Fringe festivals, musicals to mainstage productions, a theatrical performance can be a fun way to spend an afternoon on family day.

    Movie Marathon

    Whether you’re a Trekkie, prefer The Wars, love the Matrix, or Finding Nemo, a movie trilogy is a killer way to entertain the entire family in one room.

    Family Cook-a-thon

    From smoking to grilling, braising to brining, there’s nothing more satisfying, time consuming, or fun for the whole family than cooking. Don’t just pick something easy -- explore slow cooking, making something from scratch, baking, or a new-to-you cuisine.

    Do Absolutely Nothing

    Family Day is a great opportunity to rest, enjoy the little things, and spend some time together. You don’t have to do anything special to make the most of the long weekend. Sometimes a quiet chill-out day is all it takes.

    Timbercreek hopes that this article gives you some ideas for how to spend your Family Day this year. For more information about Timbercreek Communities in your city, please visit our website.
