Wellness Tip of the Week
Group exercise for mental health
Exercise in general has positive effects to our health and mental health as well. Doing exercise in a group has been proven to have additional benefits, such as lowering stress. Improving quality of life in means of physical, mental, and emotional were also studied and shown to improve quality in these areas of life with group exercise. People are able to connect socially in a group exercise class as well. These social connections can lead to lower rates of anxiety, and depression as well as higher self-esteem, more empathy, and more trusting and cooperative relationships.

Outdoor physical activities to try:
It’s that time of year again to bring out the kayaks. Kayaks are welcomed on many Nebraska state park lakes. Consider spending some time in the calm quiet of the morning out on one of the lakes like Branched Oak in Raymond Nebraska. Soon you will also be able to rent kayaks to use at Louisville State Park.

What is better than yoga? Goat yoga! Beginning April 16th you can join high quality, certified yoga instructors in a 45 minute yoga class. You will be joined by the cutest baby goats for your experience. All fitness levels are welcome to join in every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Honey Creek Iowa, about 20 minutes north of Omaha.
