Managing Stress During The Holiday Season

The holiday season is an important time to practice self-care to nurture both your physical and mental health. Family gatherings, celebrations, traditions, and holiday travel can wreak havoc on your routine.  While the holidays are intended to be a happy festive time, they can also be stressful. The colder, gloomier weather also makes individuals more susceptible to seasonal depression. This time of year, it’s important to check in with your body and make sure you’re managing your stress levels appropriately. 

One effective way to help manage your stress levels is to keep a consistent exercise routine. We know the holiday season is a busy time of year and schedules fill up fast. WB20 is here to help! Our 20-minute fat burning, muscle toning programs are designed for the busy professional who wants to work out smarter, not harder. Whole Body Electro Muscle Stimulation (WB-EMS) is the perfect solution for those who, due to the schedule limitations, have trouble training on a regular basis and with adequate training intensity.

WB-EMS training is well-known for its ability to improve muscular performance. However, the mental health benefits of WB-EMS training are often overlooked by the general public.  Multiple studies have shown that WB-EMS can have a significant impact on well-being, relaxation, mood, and managing stress levels (Keicher et al., 2021; Kim, 2021; Jee, 2018). One study even found that over the course of six weeks, WB-EMS training decreased soreness, anxiety, fatigability, and insomnia (Jee, 2018).

So give yourself the gift of physical and mental wellness this holiday season by taking a trip down to our studio (or booking an in-home session!). Your body– and your mind– will thank you for it.
