What has running given you?
The ability to push through the trash in your head that tried to tell me I cannot run this fast anymore, that everyone else ahead of you was younger and stronger, that it is too hot.
It was a difficult challenge at first, but now you are able to now turn these doubts into a different frame of mind. In fact, now you tell yourself that you are in better shape than you were in your 20’s, that age is just a number, that you do it for your kids, and you do it because you CAN and maybe, just maybe, you will be able to inspire others to reach for their best lives! The local recent Run for the Girls allowed you a chance to share your new passion with other your females before they start listening to the wrong kind of voices.
Finding a Way to Feel Your Best Helps You Look Your Best
Whether you are considering body sculpting for the first time or you are someone who has always loved running, it is always important to stay motivated to look your best. People who eat right and exercise often have a confidence that serves them well. They are often motivated and organized.
Consider some of these facts and figures about the many ways that Americans use a variety of services, from body sculpting to couples massages to manicures and facials to make sure that they are feeling and looking their best:
- 41% of American adults who had a massage in the past five years reported they sought it for pain relief, according to the American Massage Therapy Association.
- Leading to an estimated $61.2 billion in lost productivity each year, Musculoskeletal pain affects one in five adults. For many, massage is a solution to these issues.
- Between the years 2011 and 2015 there was a 41% increase in Botox treatments among 19 to 34 year olds, indicating that young people are booking Botox treatments in record numbers.
- Consumers made 179 million visits to spas in the U.S., generating $16.3 billion in estimated revenue, according to a 2016 International Spa Association U.S. Spa Industry Study.
When you realize that Millennials account for 55% of all the selfies, it should come as no surprised that they are a generation that cares about how they look. When you also realize that percentage compares to 24% for Generation X and 9% for Baby Boomers, you can understand why there are so many salons, spas, and body sculpting places in the U.S.
