November/December 2018

                  



Happy Holidays! While this time of year can bring great joy and happiness, it can also be a time of over-indulging, over-stressing and over-doing. The Ranch Fitness Center & Spa has everything you need to establish balance during the frenzied festivities.

  1. Balance over-indulging with exercise. Remember that the idea is to gain some control over holiday temptations not eliminate them. Depriving yourself of foods that are rooted in tradition and that you look forward to can have a negative effect.  Keep moderation in the equation, indulging every now and then is not going to sabotage you especially if you keep up with regular exercise. Physical activity helps to burn off extra calories and is great for stress management. Keep the focus on fun over food and be cautious not to use exercise as an excuse to eat more.
  2. Balance over-stressing with restoration and relaxation. The duration and quality of sleep is a critical factor in the restorative process. Unfortunately, this is undermined when there is an unhealthy buildup of hormones due to stress. Pent up levels of stress hormones prohibit sleep quality and wellbeing. To nurture relaxation and restoration, engage in mindful activities that invite calm to the body and mind. Yoga and Tai Chi are great activities along with massage therapy. Exercise and massage both help to balance brain chemistry to encourage relaxation and restore healthy sleep patterns.
  3. Balance over-doing with realistic expectations. Research shows that unrealistic expectations, such as well-behaved children, exquisite entertaining and finding the perfect gifts often end up leaving us shattered with disappointment. Refocus perspective on being present in the moment. Value your time with loved ones and do not stress over the minor details. The Ranch makes gift giving a snap. Visit our lobby boutique for a full range of indulgent body care products. We also have gift cards to provide the ultimate spa, salon or fitness experience for the loved ones in your life.
