Holiday Stress Release Workshop!
We know the holidays can be a busy time of year for everyone! Traffic is crazy, parking lots are packed, and the lines in stores, and restaurants are getting longer, and longer. Not to mention the fact that the end of the year is bearing down on us like a runaway freight train! Here at Balance Martial Arts, we understand that feeling, and know exactly how to help! A true martial arts class is all about balancing mind, body and spirit. What could feel better than an 800 calorie burning, bag pounding, stress relieving, strength developing fun and exciting workout like kickboxing? We will tell you – that same high energy workout balanced with the calming mental benefits, and zen like experience of martial arts forms and breathing techniques!
We are having a free beginner Martial Arts workshop scheduled for Wednesday, December 28th at 11:00 am, and 7:15 pm. This session is designed to clear the mind of any negative anxiety and create a positive mindset. The session will include typical resistance exercises, boxing and a combination of martial arts in order to allow you to get rid of any personal or work frustrations. No experience needed, and we promise you will leave smiling!

The Holiday Unshakable Eights for Stress Release and Happy Holidays
Walk away from worries
“The rhythm and repetition of walking has a tranquilizing effect on your brain, and it decreases anxiety and improves sleep,” says nutrition-and-wellness expert Ann Kulze, MD. Aim for a brisk, half-hour walk every day.
Do less, enjoy more
“We go overboard to please others during the holidays: shopping, cooking, sending cards, and attending every event,” says George Pratt, PhD, a psychologist at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla in California. “Instead, take care of yourself by saying no at least once—and maybe more.”
Stick with your daily routine
Prioritize your workouts, book club, etc., and don’t try to squeeze in more holiday than you can handle, says Katherine Muller, PsyD, an assistant professor of psychology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City
Constant cell phone buzzes and email alerts keep us in a perpetual fight-or-flight mode due to bursts of adrenaline. Not only is this exhausting, but it contributes to mounting stress levels, especially in women. What better time to turn your gadgets off than during a holiday get-together? Enjoy spending time with your family and friends without worry
Turn up the tunes
Anxious? Listen to your favorite music, whether it’s Jingle Bell Rock or the latest from Jay-Z. Research from the University of Maryland shows that hearing music you love can relax blood vessels and increase blood flow. That not only calms you down but is good for your heart, too.
Fit in exercise
It may be the last thing you feel like doing when you’re stressed out, but going for a run or hitting the gym can actually make you feel better. Research has found that workouts can boost your mood for up to 12 hours.
Positive thoughts and thinking transfer to positive actions. Look of the best and make active appreciation part of your daily routine.
You may want to consider starting a martial arts class this time of year.
I know you may be thinking “What – something new this time of year?” A true martial arts class is all about mind, body and spirit, according to Greg Silva, president of Black Belt Schools International. “You get healthy exercise and flexibility training, a positive atmosphere and stress release.” Getting started now will be beneficial for your health, stress level as well as jump start your healthy goals for 2017.
