“Inward calm cannot be maintained unless physical strength is constantly and intelligently replenished.”

It is said that Buddah uttered these wise words. I don’t know if “The Enlightened One“ was thinking of a particular way to replenish physical strength, but I can tell you that your always-on-it, FLocal Magazine team has a few words of wisdom and great suggestions to help you achieve inward calm and increase your physical strength.

Start off by reading Achieving Peace in Mind and Body in 2018 to learn how to nourish your body and mind through proper nutrition, healthy hygiene products, meditation and physical activity. Making small changes over time can ensure sustainability and long-term health.

Dr. Beth Anlas, D.O gives us her professional advice in Your Body is Your Most Valued Possession. She shows us how we can make small changes to our daily routines to help us stay in the best health. Some of those changes involve nutrition. Dr. Ryan Harmon, M.S, R.D, C.S.S.D, L.D, the team nutritionist for the Tampa Bay Rays, gives us an inside look at how she ensures the organization gets the proper nutrition and diet. She also has four tips for FLocal readers to incorporate into our own lives.

Believe me. Despite what you hear and read, there’s no magic pill that will give you your fit dream body,  but we do have Tom Gurganus at Burn Fitness Studio. He’s making it all easier by providing us with a 3-step process to help us achieve fitness and health success. Really people, just 3 easy steps.

The best part is that you can look fitness fashionable while you Work Out at Home in Just 30 Minutes. This quick, but effective workout from Yadhira Maldonado of FitLivin shows us how to utilize compound exercises to get great results. FLocal’s own Fashion Editor, Michelle Bremer  (Runway Translator) shows off fitness clothing from SoHo Cycling while strengthening her core and maintaining the burn.

Before you start getting all crazy with our exercise suggestions, make sure you avoid possible injuries. Dr. Eric Schweitzer provides expert advice to visit a Physical Therapist (PT) prior to starting an exercise regimen. A PT can see clues of any potential injuries and help you correct issues before they become problematic.

Once you’ve fully educated yourself on achieving inward calm and increasing your physical strength, check out the history, positive economic impact and tourism from the Outback Bowl, sponsored by the Outback Steakhouse. Enjoy a Negroni cocktail with the recipe from Dean Hurst while you read about this Tampa Bay treasure, sports event.

Your body is truly your most valued possession and you only get one. Fall in love with taking care of yourself; mind, body and spirit. Read all about it here https://flocalmagazine.com/this-issue/

Peace out,

Britt Blume
