Treaty 6 Acknowledgement
We acknowledge that our clinic is located on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional meeting ground for many Indigenous peoples.

Or what if you have set goals in the past, but you didn’t achieve them? Do you just give up and tell yourself that goal setting doesn’t work? That’s one option, but let’s put things into perspective. continue reading
