Working out has become a big deal.  Everyone is trying to eat the healthiest, become the fittest, and discover the best type of workout plan.  While running and lifting weights are great, yoga seems to top them all!  It’s a great way to burn calories, build muscle, and relax the mind.  Find out why yoga is the most relaxing workout you’ll ever have!Chelsea Crockett- yoga

Yoga uses specific techniques to focus on your breathing which calms the mind.  It’s a way to release tension from all muscle groups, including your brain.  This, in turn, can actually boost confidence!  Another great benefit from yoga is that it’s a long-term workout.  Unlike running and lifting which can eventually wear down your joints, yoga has a low injury rate and can be practiced for years and years.  It also increases flexibility!

Like other forms of workout, it can help you lose weight and improve muscle tone and strength.  Yoga targets hard to reach muscles…some you may not even know existed!  Give yoga a try, especially if you’re looking for a new way to spice up your workout routine.  Your body and mind will be happy!

Get Up, Go Outside, and Be Happy!

Nature is one of God’s most wonderful gifts!   It’s all around you, so why not take advantage of it?  It’s easier to be happy when you’re outside in the warm sun and cool breeze.  It’s much better than being stuck indoors!  Whenever possible, get up and go outside!  I promise it’ll make all the difference.

Your body recognizes when it’s outdoors and indoors.  Greenness, water, plants, and sun are proven to relax the body.  It does some good for the mind, body, and soul.  Just a few minutes outside a day can reset the body and reduce stress.  It’s also a great way to get vitamin D, which can be produced naturally in the body through sunlight exposure.  Vitamin D aids in a healthy immune system, helps us keep a healthy weight, prevents cancer, and can reduce inflammation.  It’s so important to be out in the sun!

Another benefit of being outdoors is your endurance!  When working out, it’s easier to run farther when you have beautiful surroundings to look at.  It’s a sort of distraction!  Try going for a Chelsea Crockett- run outsidelonger run than usual throughout a park or neighborhood or do pull-ups on a tree branch.  You can even do your ab work in the nice open field of green grass.  Your mind won’t even realize how hard your body is working!

I hope you’ll make an effort to spend more time outdoors.  Your body will thank you for it!

Love,
