Turkey Burn Week

posted on November 25, 2019

Welcome to Thanksgiving week. We at Union Fitness hope that this holiday is filled with many good times with friends and family. We also understand that this season can be stressful for many reasons. Balancing the different personalities can be more stressful than preparing a great meal. With this in mind here is a short list of ways to escape the stress of the holiday and relax.

  1. Come to our Turkey Burn workout and bring a canned good to donate to those less fortunate.
  2. Use our get your headspace app and meditate for ten minutes.
  3. Use or get your MetriLife app and track your stress to see how far you have come and how you can improve.
  4. Before or after your meal take a family walk.
  5. Before or after your meal take a walk alone (sometimes we need this).
  6. Do not worry about calories on thanksgiving day. Just be sure to eat healthy the rest of the week.
  7. Do some volunteering this week. There are many great groups who need help as the winter closes its grips on us so help the needy.

This is a very short list of different ways that you can help others and yourself. Also, remember on this holiday that helping oneself does not need to be a zero sum game. We can volunteer and still help our mental state or exercise and empower those around us to exercise as well.

Happy thanksgiving week our friends!
