If you’re like me, you want to find a balance in your life between work, family and social activities. In our ever increasing, fast paced, success focused life style it is becoming harder and harder to do all of the things we want to. Stress is rapidly becoming the #1 health risk for North Americans today. Whether it’s work related or personal, stress can become present in our lives in little ways like over-eating, loss of sleep and short tempers (ever hear of road rage?) to very serious medical conditions such as high blood pressure, hypertension, stroke and heart attack.
Maybe you have heard all this before. Certainly people are becoming more aware of the importance of leading a healthy life-style, both physically and emotionally. Yet many of us can’t find the time to get started on a new path. Or we feel that we will have more time tomorrow to begin achieving those goals. But soon tomorrow leads to next week, next month and suddenly years have gone by and you find yourself looking in the mirror wondering when it’s going to change.
You may be thinking, “What has this got to do with karate?” My name is Scott Bullard and I am a sensei (chief instructor). I teach a highly successful program designed to help adults to lead healthy lives physically and emotionally and reduce negative stress. It is called the Teen & Adult Karate / Kickboxing Program taught at Canada’s Best™ Karate.
Before I explain the details about the Teen & Adult Karate / Kickboxing Program, let’s first identify where you may need help in becoming more healthy.
