Today MANMAKER SPORTS had a great day uniting with community to celebrate a common cause: Health & Fitness at "FRESHFEST" at the Meyer Amphitheater in West Palm Beach. (www.freshfestfl.com) The deejay was jamming and the sun was shining! It was a beautiful day to recognize the importance and joy of embracing a healthy lifestyle. From vegan food trucks to gluten free beer, the event had something for everyone. There was one common theme, however, that really stood out to us. That is the theme of the UNITY in COMMUNITY. This was a group, or at least a "buddy" type of day. There was group yoga class, a dance team from a local arts high school, people daring to try a HEW (Hard Exercise Works) 15 minute boot camp, spinning classes, and more! We were struck by the fact that something can be great, but when you share it with someone else it becomes special!
How can we create more special moments in our lives? Maybe we can start by choosing times to include a friend, a co-worker, or family member in our experiences. Perhaps a grueling solo workout can be replaced by a shared walk outdoors with a friend. Or rather than rushing through a mindless workout make a date with a buddy to check into a yoga class together? Life is busy for sure, but the more special moments we share brings us closer to those around us and fosters so much more than we can do alone.
