How Canada Is A Perfect Place For Holidays

How Canada Is A Perfect Place For Holidays

Here are a few reasons why Canada is perfect for celebrations, whether it’s to celebrate an everlasting friendship, romance or familial bonds.

1. The Diversity Of Culture

Canada is no stranger to diversity and uniqueness in culture. Its land prides itself on diversity and perceives it as their strength instead of a drawback. This uniqueness is then brought to the daily livelihood of Canadians, therefore every culture is celebrated and paraded.

You’ll find Chinese New Years, Deepavali, Eid Ul Fitri and Christmas all celebrated by everyone. When there’s constant sharing, Canadians find accepting travelers from all parts of the world as something amazing instead of being skeptic. Hence the humility and friendliness of Canadians would allow you to travel and enjoy your vacation in peace.

Plus, you might even make amazing friends throughout your travels and the next time you’re there you wouldn’t have to book a hotel or couch surf anymore; instead, you could just ring up a friend.

2. Abundance of Food

Food is a crucial part of traveling. We all look forward to expanding our taste buds in any country we visit. Having adventures with food whether it’s good or bad can be exhilarating and memorable. Canada is the land of food innovation and amazing maple syrup. If you think the bottled maple syrup is exactly the same as the one in Canada then you don’t know what you’re missing.

For the very first time, dipping fries into maple syrup may not be weird at all. Plus, due to the colonization of both the French and English, Canada has two strong food sectors. You’ll be able to find the best blue cheese in various parts of Quebec and you will also be able to enjoy those huge English breakfasts and black pudding in British Columbia.

On the other hand, if you’re traveling towards Nova Scotia you’ll find unlimited amounts of fresh fish right from the sea, and you might find amazing discoveries among marine food that you’ve never tried before. From then on, you’ll never be able to describe fish the same way.

The tip is to always be fearless when trying out different cuisine; you’ll be amazed by your taste buds.

3. Amazing Architecture

While for some, food is the main purpose of traveling or a way to identify with the history and the culture of a country, for others it may be the architecture and the history that tells the story. Reminiscing and observing every curve and every sculpture in a building gives a sense of fulfillment and history.

It defines and shows how the country was formed. Canada has had a strong influence from both the French and the English. The mini France is what Quebec is known for: its buildings reminding one of the French Renaissance—it could bring one to tears. If you’re looking to spend a romantic holiday this place would be perfect for that. As you walk down the street you can imagine walking down the alleys of Strasbourg in the South of France.

However, if you’re looking for something more fancy and royal then you can always take the next ride to British Columbia—the English part of Canada where the architecture represents class and the aristocratic part of English society.

4. It’s a Place To Feed On Adventure and Entertainment

For those with a passion for adventure and adrenaline, head to the Banff National Park and take on an adventure. For those who are high-spirited, you can indulge in hiking and climbing. With an array of open campsites, take it up a notch by staying in the wild. Switch the sceneries of being in a four-walled bedroom to limitless nature.

If you love skiing or snowboarding, Mount Norquay offers the perfect slopes according to the season for one to ski or snowboard. Its high mountains give one of the most perfect atmospheres to push the boundaries of excitement. On the other hand, most of us would want to visit the rainbow bridge, Niagara Falls. The manmade falls have never failed to impress people from all around the world.

You can always wine and dine in the wonderful restaurants overlooking the falls whilst gazing into the sunset, or you could also enjoy some childhood pleasures in the theme parks.

Overall, it’s safe to say Canada is a perfect place for those who are wanting different types of adventures or looking to constantly shake things up. Hence why not Canada for an amazing holiday?

11 Things Overachievers Do Differently

11 Things Overachievers Do Differently

We all know some overachievers: supermoms who manage to get online degrees between cleaning, cooking, and taking kids to practice; students who write 10-page papers when the directions call for 4; managers whose resumes look more like pages from the Guinness book of Records.

How do they do it all? How is it possible that one person can graduate at the top of their class, found an orphanage in India, run 30k marathons, write a best-selling book, travel all over the world and learn to speak Mandarin Chinese while having a full-time job?

What’s the secret of an overachiever? Here’re 11 things overachievers do differently that you can learn from.

1. They Know How to Manage Their Time

It’s pretty simple actually – you can never become an overachiever if you don’t know how to organize your time efficiently.

The great thing is that overachievers are ready to share their knowledge and time management talent with the rest of the world. Read The 4-Hour Workweek or The 4-Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss, and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

2. They Don’t Spend Hours Watching TV or Playing Computer Games

Mostly because they have better things to do, like exercising, reading, spending an evening with their family or volunteering to work in the local soup kitchen. Their philosophy is simple – the world is full of wonderful things to try, explore and experience. Watching TV is not one of them.

3. They Are Obsessed With Perfection

Imagine Steve Jobs’ work approach and you’ll understand the level of perfection and painfully high standards that overachievers set for themselves and those around them. Often it pays off (especially if they focus on just one domain). But sometimes compulsive over-striving turns into a sure-fire road to disappointments and unfinished tasks.

Learn how to strike a balance: How Not to Let Perfectionism Secretly Screw You Up

4. They Know How To Inspire

Overachievers learn quickly that it is much easier to achieve goals through collaboration (and especially delegation). So they know how to inspire, encourage, persuade and motivate people around them. Even though they often drive their team crazy with their stubbornness and perfectionism, people quickly follow under the spell of their enthusiasm and greater vision.

Learn these 10 Powerful Ways to Influence People Positively.

5. They Set Clear Goals

The term “overachiever” itself implies that they know how to achieve goals. That is kind of hard to do if your goals are vague, unclear and lack specific deadline, which is why overachievers educate themselves, read goal-setting books, and think about the best way to approach a new task.

Although, it’s worth mentioning that overachievers usually use their time management and goal-setting skills towards competitive, “I want to kick butt” type of goals rather than self-improvement, mastery goals.

6. They Are Organized

It’s hard to imagine a disorganized overachiever, isn’t it? Their great organizational and planning skills usually serve three main purposes: keeping track of time, keeping track of progress and keeping track of achievements.

This hasn’t been confirmed by scientific research yet, but overachievers might actually get a “runner’s high” from crossing tasks off their to-do lists, and making new to-do lists.

Here’s How to Organize Your Life: 10 Habits of Really Organized People

7. They Try to Avoid Failure at All Costs

Some psychologists believe that overachievers place their self-worth on their competence, driven by an underlying fear of failure. Rather than setting and striving for goals based on a pure desire to achieve, their core motivation becomes avoiding failure. This may explain the fact that overachiever beat themselves up for even little setbacks and seemingly-insignificant mistakes.

But be aware that having a strong fear of failure can wrek havoc your productivity. So the best thing to do? Learn to conquer the fear: Why You Have the Fear of Failure (And How to Conquer It)

8. They Love Awards

Who doesn’t love them, right? True enough, but unlike most people who like to feel acknowledged and appreciated for their efforts, overachievers are bent on collecting ‘awards’, be it university degrees, spelling bee prizes or unusual destinations.

While loving awares isn’t bad, it’s even better if you’re driven by internal motivation instead of external ones which could be quite uncontrolable or unstable: Why Is Internal Motivation So Powerful (And How to Find It).

9. They Don’t Understand the Concept of Work Hours

Don’t get surprised if you receive a work-related email anywhere between 8 p.m. and midnight. It’s something overachievers usually do and you weren’t the only one. At least 20 more emails have been sent during these hours to other people. The concepts of over-achieving and working overtime usually go hand in hand.

The downside of this is an imbalnced life, which may need to problems in other aspects of life including health and relationships. A better way is to Achieve a Realistic Work Life Balance.

10. They Rest

Overachievers might often be labeled as “workaholics”, because they often ignore bodily signs of hunger, fatigue and even a full bladder, hoping to finish just one last little part. This doesn’t mean that overachievers don’t know how to disconnect and relax.

True that they tend to work in the highest gear, but they also have enough sense to give themselves time to rest and recharge. Of course, they do it in their own overachieving way, preferring climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or hiking through the Amazon jungle to lazing on the beach.

11. Overachievers Continuously Educate Themselves

A great quality that most overachievers have is the hunger for knowledge. They surround themselves with bright people. They know how to listen, and most importantly, they get tons of mentoring.

Despite the fact that overachievers want to excel at everything they set their minds on, they are humble enough to admit that to get on top of their game, they need help. And they are willing to pay someone to push, coach and guide them.

You too can learn How to Create a Habit of Continuous Learning for a Better You.
