All we hear about on the news is how our economy is shrinking, the value of our investments are spiraling downward, foreclosures are at record highs, etc.  Let’s face it, we are living in a stressful time.  Many people are out of jobs, and those who do have jobs are worried if they will still have one tomorrow.  One glance at your portfolio compared to two years ago is enough to make anybody stressed out!

I have a different view on what we are all going through right now though.  Although it is hard to get motivated to get to the gym when times are hard, it’s actually one of the most important times for people to workout.  We all need an outlet when we are stressed out, and unfortunately many people turn to negative outlets in order to relieve stress.  When you turn to a negative outlet to relieve your stress it seems like your problems only get progressively worse.  The stress in our lives is not going away, so it’s time to get to the gym and WORKOUT the stress.  Don’t make the mistake of using a negative outlet when you can come by Blue Springs Fitness and take it out on the weights, the treadmill, or even just come in and relax in the sauna or hot tub.

I’m encouraging people to not turn their back on the gym now, because this is quite honestly the best time I could think of for people to workout and start making themselves feel and look better.  Who knows, when it’s all said and done you might have the body you have always dreamed of, and all along made it through a stressful time in American History without resorting to a negative outlet.

I don’t need to go into the details of the numerous health problems that stress can have on the human body, we have heard them time and time again.  There is no sense in making a bad situation even worse by not taking care of your health.
