Body & Brain Offers Free Virtual Classes to Help Local Residents Optimize Their Immune System During the Pandemic

Chicago area residence have been in the stay at home quarantine since March. The threat of the virus and the uncertainty produced by social distancing has increased everyone’s stress and anxiety levels.

Master Lee, a PhD. neuroscientist and Regional Manager with Body & Brain, said, “When we are subjected to prolonged periods of anxiety, your body’s flight-or fight response is triggered and a flood of chemicals and hormones , like adrenaline, are released into your body. This can weaken your immune system, leaving you more vulnerable to viral infection and frequent illnesses.”

Headaches, fatigue, joint aches, lack of focus, weight gain, digestion issues, and insomnia are just some of the symptoms associated with a compromised immune system. Master Lee explains, “To create balance and to promote natural healing and well-being, we must activate our body’s parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system. When the parasympathetic nervous system is activated, it produces a calm and relaxed feeling in the mind and body. This is particularly important during these stressful times.”

Like many businesses, Body & Brain had to temporarily close their doors for live training. Rather than worrying about things that are outside of their control, they decided to focus on what they can share instead. Body & Brain teaches several strategies and techniques in their classes to help people learn how to promote healing in their own body and optimize their immune system. They have been teaching these strategies in virtual classes to help their members to manage stress and feel more hopeful in an otherwise bleak situation.

To support their members’ families, friends, and local communities, Body & Brain is offering a FREE webinar and FREE virtual classes. Master Lee states, “The webinar on Saturday, May 30, reveals the principles of our practice on how to better manage your energy, mind and body. The FREE one-hour virtual classes start June 1 and cover training in Core, Meditation & Qigong, and Yoga. Each virtual group class will be an interactive experience designed to improve the overall well-being for ourselves, our loved ones, and our community. We want to share those feelings of hopefulness and joy that we experience together with our members to our friends and family all over the world”.

People can register online for the webinar on May 30 at 4 PM and the three weeks of FREE Classes starting June 1. When people register, they are entitled to take up to three free classes a week for three weeks. They are also encouraged to share the link with their friends and family.

Martin Rooney, Author of “Coach to Coach”: Inspires People 50+ with an Epic Pandemic Half Time Speech on Never Too Late for Fitness Radio

While the pandemic and the stay at home quarantine is serious and one of the biggest challenges we are likely to face in a lifetime, Rooney says that it still provides us all with a gift. Rooney says, “Crisis is a gift because it reveals to us what is most important. During the quarantine, we finally have the time to do all the things we said we did not have time for. Like eating right, working out, reading, or spending time with our family. If you are not spending your time on those things now, it was not a time problem. If you do not like how you have been spending your time and energy, change it!”

Everyone has been touched by the pandemic and how we come out of this will be defining moments for countries, businesses, and millions of people alike. The half time in a sporting event is designed to assess where the team is and to set the course for the second half. As people move into the second half of the crisis, what they learn and how they adapt will set their life’s trajectory for years to come. During the Never Too Late For Fitness Radio interview, Rooney explained, “We all know that this is going to be over and you get to be who you are when you emerge. The key to making that happen is ACTION!”

One of the gifts Rooney shared during his half time speech was how to deal with the fear and anxiety people experience because of the crisis. He points out that that the pandemic does not really create fear and anxiety, people create it in their own minds. To help listeners better cope with fear and anxiety, Rooney shared a simple two-step process. Rooney states, “You have to embrace what it is you are really afraid of and ask what actions you can take to minimize that?”

Rooney’s new book, “Coach to Coach”, came out right before the quarantine began. Most people told Rooney that this would be the worst time to ever release a new book. What he has experienced has been the exact opposite. Boosted by rave reviews the book has become a bestseller and is inspiring people around the globe. When host, Phil Faris asked why the book has done so well, Rooney replied, “Now, more than ever, people need a coach in their corner because I think being a coach is the most important job in the world. If you are a husband or wife, or parent, or brother or sister, or teammate or co-worker, you are a coach to someone else. “Coach to Coach” was written to create better coaches everywhere”

The interview concluded with Rooney reminding people to focus on the things they can control, to take action, and win the battle with the six inches between their ears!
