We are living in ‘unprecedented’ times. “I’m ok.”
Masks, Lockdown, Quarantine, Social Distancing. “I’m ok.”
School from home. Work from home. Church from home. Exercise from home. “I’m ok.”
Virtual Meetings. Virtual Events. Virtual Coffees. Virtual Happy Hours. “I’m ok.”
Tensions rising. Vacations cancelled. Marriages crumbling. Depression rampant. “I am NOT ok.”
Cancel culture. Stress mounting. Back to School - or not. Crime and Unemployment rising.
“Definitely NOT ok.”

Big achievements are built with small habits. And here’s the beauty of our habits: we have the power to change them. Taking steps toward change can be daunting. Especially when we go at it alone. But what if you had help along the way?
That’s why we developed Nukshuk – an innovative, digital self-improvement platform.
The name Nukshuk pays homage to ancient Inuit communities that used “inukshuks” – stacked stones – to serve as guideposts to help each other in their daily lives. A similar intention with a modern twist, Nukshuk uses digital technology to empower you to set goals, monitor everyday habits and rely on a trusted community for encouragement and accountability.
From fitness to finance, stress management to spirituality and beyond, Nukshuk has something for everyone who wants to embrace personal growth and live life to the fullest.
Healthy Habits. Caring Community. Simple Sustainable Success.
Nukshuk is there for you on your path to becoming your best self.
Life is a journey.
Let Nukshuk be your guide.
