The longterm goal of CrossFit is health and wellness. CrossFit even came up with a brilliant Glassman Wellness continuum that has sickness on one end and fitness on the other. Sickness entails chronic disease – diabetes, obesity, cancer – but it also considers drug addiction, depression, eating disorders and other maladies as obstacles that can affect our overall health. Watch the news or clink on a link in your news feed and you know are these mental challenges on the rise as leading causes of death.
Finding solutions to these issues aren’t alway easy. I wanted to share a website I came across that you may be able to use or share with a friend or loved one. The Recovery Village has detoxification facilities, as well as recovery programs. There may not be a center near you, but there is a list of resources in all areas of the country, including the Stanislaus County area spanning substance abuse to domestic violence. Please share.
Brian has talked about the usefulness of meditation for a few years now. Headspace is trying to be the first app that can be prescribed to improve overall health, sleep, reduce stress, manage anxiety and more.
