Back Work and Brain Work

January 31st, 2014

A few announcements:

On Sunday, we will be playing the Super Bowl on the projector, so bring some food and drink and come chill with the SJBB family. Come hit the 11 AM class so you can enjoy the food afterwards!

Remember to tell your friends and family that Saturdays at 11 AM is open to anyone! The best thing you can do for yourself is to get in the habit of taking care of yourself and moving your body. Whether that's lifting, yoga, Zumba, walking, MMA, whatever. MOVE! Movement and challenge keeps your body young, along with paying attention to what you put on your plate. To take it one step further, you have to challenge your brain as well. Read, write, learn a new skill. These are super important aspects of staying healthy and happy. Take up something that you think might be fun and let your brain grow! As in all things, don't stagnate. Always keep growing. The brain is probably the most important thing that you want to keep fresh and young. Challenge it!!! Don't let it become comfortable and start rotting away!

1. Think, think, think. Mental fitness in invaluable to your brain. It's simple: the more you use the brain, the better it works.

Read a book. Solve crosswords and Sudoku puzzles. Play cards or bingo. Join a book club or discussion group. Learn to speak Italian or play the guitar. Sign up for a cooking course (or start teaching cookery). Do whatever you want, and then in addition to training, you'll have fun.

Yesterday's crew killin' the wod!
