Here we go!! The holiday season is upon us and in full swing!
The weather is ever-changing and whoa... it's chilly outside, to say the least.
It's still 2020 for one more month and well... not much seems to have changed with regard to COVID.
Daylight Savings makes it feel like it's time to go to bed when it's only 5:00pm.
Kids might even still be at home if they're being home-schooled... or back home from college too, in some cases!
These are just some of the things that can make it feel easier to curl up on the couch wrapped in a warm blanket when you find some spare time to yourself. In other words... this time of year it can be easy to make excuses when it comes to your health and wellness.
But what IF, this was the time you didn't make any excuses?
What IF, this was the time you decided to show up for yourself?
What IF, this was the time you decided to make yourself a priority?
What IF, like a doctor's appointment you schedule in advance, you also scheduled your "appointments" at the gym in advance? And then showed up without canceling at the last minute because... oops... that warm blanket felt pretty good?
And hey listen... we're not knocking warm blankets here. Some of us have an entire collection in every color, fabric and pattern... ahem. And yoga pants and joggers, and all things comfy. New Bloom sweatshirt anyone? We'll take one in each color please and thank you!
What we're trying to say here is that WE GET IT. Trust us, we do.
But here's something else we get... it's ok to have a balance of BOTH. But this time of year more than ever, that takes discipline, juggling and planning ahead... not just "penciling-in" your workouts, but scheduling them with a Sharpie & committing to them full force.
Because the truth is... our health doesn't always wait for us to get through the holidays.
Our health doesn't always say... ok, no worries, I'll see ya in January.
MOVEMENT is medicine.
CONSISTENCY is key all year round.
BALANCE is something you have the ability to create in your life.
And your MINDSET is the determining force behind your successes and failures.
Now more than ever, moving your body matters... doing what you can to stay healthy matters... staying connected to others matters.
Not only does exercise help your body in fighting disease, but it also helps in fighting the effects of depression. And let's face it, this year has probably been the fuel for more people dealing with depression than ever before.
We are here to help though! We're ending this year with a BANG and we're hoping to see you there while we do it!
MINDBODY makes it easy to plan your workouts in advance. Use that resource, not only to claim your spot in our limited-size classes, but also to hold yourself accountable.
Ask around to others in the Bloomsquad community who are currently attending classes if you're concerned or wondering about the cleanliness and safety of our studio. We can assure you that we are taking things seriously and have taken extra steps this year to keep us ALL healthy.
Did you know that we have an AMAZING deal on class passes and gift cards right now too? Just like our new Bloom apparel... it's not a want, it's a NEED.
These special prices are good through this week only though, so don't hesitate to grab yours or share it with a loved one!
If we could ask just one more favor of you though... in addition to continuing to show up for classes throughout the holiday season... we'd love if you could let the world know why you love Bloom! Share a quick note on social media, snap a pic of a sweaty post-workout selfie from an in-studio/virtual class OR even shoot us a message and we'll be happy to share it for you!
Use the hashtag #BFSHolidayHustle and let's inspire others to get healthy along with us!
Workout first... comfy blanket second. Life is all about balance.
You got this, Bloomsquad. WE got this. And we are sticking together as we finish this year STRONG and head into 2021 even stronger!
Let's DO THIS!!
