Fitness Update – March 4

I have exciting news to share with you all! We are welcoming new cardio equipment at Santa Rosa Fitness Center this coming Friday, March 8. For this reason we will be closing the gym area at 10:00 AM on Friday, March 8 and re-open on Saturday, March 9, with normal hours of operation.

We will be conducting small group orientations, so be sure to book yours at the Santa Rosa Front Desk.

Restoring Balance

Here are a few things you can do to restore balance:

  • Attend a gentle yoga or Tai-Chi class;
  • Take a walk out in nature and pay attention to your breathing (walking meditation);
  • Practice breathing techniques prior going to bed;
  • Take a warm shower before bed time to bring body temperature to normal;
  • Sip tea that doesn’t contain caffeine such as chamomile, hibiscus, peppermint, and ginger. Herbal coffee tea (this tea contains maca powder, dandelion root, and chicory root; it’s caffeine-free and a deep and invigorating coffee alternative for morning time);
  • Rub a little essential oil such as lavender oil on your temple;
  • Turn all electronics completely off or fully cover the little lights in the room from the TV or cell phone that interfere with our REM sleep. Aim for seven to nine hours of sleep each night and wake up joyful.

Practice these restorative methods on a consistent basis to regain balance and wake up feeling energized, revitalized and rested!
