March Madness Month

What's Inside

Monthly Keep From Going Mad

Watch this 2 minute video on the mental impact of exercise!

Physical activity is an important part of overall health. Many people do it to improve cardiovascular health, build muscle, or to look and feel good. With the madness we all experience having such busy lives, it can seem hard get up and get moving every day. What many people do not realize is, making the time for activity can actually keep you from going mad.

There is much more than what is on the surface with physical activity. Being active is also good for the mind. Just a few minutes of moderate exercise can give you a mood enhancement effect that is felt instantly. This can be as simple as going for a 15 minute walk every 

day, making sure you stand up from your desk every hour, or attending one of our fitness classes offered in the evening.
