Happy Holidays from MBS
There’s no question that the holidays, although filled with joy, may also be filled with stress and anxiety. A recent Gallup poll ranked Americans as one of the most stressed and anxious populations in the world—even more than third world countries that don’t have nearly the amount of creature comforts, technology and amenities as we have in the U.S.
One of the reasons is that we are always focused on getting more, Dr. Harold Koenig, a renowned theologian, explains, and forget to have an “attitude of gratitude” for what we do have in our lives. MBS stands for Michael’s Body Scenes but it also shares the acronym for “Mind Body Spirit.” When we have all three in alignment, we are happier and healthier.
Many studies have shown how exercise positively affects not only our physical health but also our emotional and mental health. People who exercise are less likely to be depressed, and exercising in a group class or friendly gym further enhances the benefits because when we are socially active, we are also less likely to fall into a funk.
MBS is the ideal venue to pursue your healthy aging program with offerings of dozens of classes ranging from Yin Yoga to soothe soul to Barbell Blast to mold muscle. Our teachers are extremely experienced and our trainers can take you to the next fitness level. It’s the ideal time to give the gift of health to yourself and to your loved ones because we’ve decided to extend our Black Friday special throughout the whole month of December so you can purchase a package of personal training for $100 off the regular price. See the front desk for details.
We wish all our members a very happy and healthy holiday and look forward to seeing you and your friends and family in the New Year.
