We miss you! We hope you are staying healthy and calm, and actively taking steps toward wellness. While Flex’s usual facilities may be off limits right now, we’ve still a lot of encouragement for you! Try and move your body every day even if for just a short walk or a quick morning stretch session. Although it may be stormy this weekend, it looks like spring is truly here next week with some really nice sunny and warm days, so we’re going to suggest some time outside in the sun (still following social distancing measures, of course). It can also help to practice mindful eating, really being aware of what you are giving your body, and trying to make food choices that nourish rather than just placate. Set aside a few minutes at the end of your day to meditate or write in a gratitude journal. There is still so much to be thankful for, and sometimes it takes just a small shift in awareness to notice. Take notice of your emotional state, try not to judge yourself and be compassionate towards yourself (and others), and accept that you may go through emotions of frustration, anxiety, or grief. We – and your fellow FlexFam – are here for you, we love you, and we promise we are doing whatever it takes to reopen stronger and better than ever. We can’t wait to be FLEXing our limits in our usual style!
Until then, we’ve been getting a really positive response to our Flex ONLINE program of virtual classes. In order to encourage everyone to try our online offerings, we are running a flash sale promotion through Sunday 3/29. For more details on the sale and other virtual events, please click here.
