Hi, everyone! My name is Kacey Peace. I want to talk to you today about how you should invest in physical and mental fitness. You might ask why I’m so interested in this topic. For starters, I am a realtor for Century 21 by trade and I am known as The Fit Realtor. This is such a fitting nickname for me since I love everything about fitness. I’m currently interested in the new Beachbody workout called Hard Corps 22. I am also part of Damsel in Defense as a Damsel Recruit. Let me talk about Damsel in Defense for a bit.
Damsel in Defense was founded by Mindy Lin and Bethany Hughes in 2011. It is the first of its kind, a direct sales company that sells self-defense products. Its mission is to equip, empower, and educate women so they won’t have to be a statistic. What statistics are they talking about? A violent crime happens every 26 seconds, 1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence, 1 in 5 women are survivors of sexual assault and a child is abducted every 40 seconds. These are statistics from reputable sources such as nomore.org; fbi.gov; and nsvrc.org. Women and men alike need to be aware that there are tools that can help them protect themselves and that’s where Damsel in Defense comes in. You can also be part of the team, like me! You can work part time or full time and get an income by raising awareness: providing healing to the hurt, an opportunity to the oppressed and hope to the helpless.
A big part of Damsel in Defense is self-defence. And to learn self-defense, one must be fit in both mind and body. Practicing mental exercises before a physical workout is a key to getting the most out of any fitness regimen. You have to be mentally prepared for whatever physical activity you are about to do in order for you to do it well. Fitday reports that “Mental toughness is a common trait of competitive athletes; it is often a large piece of what sets them apart from the competition.” And not just athletes can benefit from mental fitness, you can too! Most people do not know that as we age, we need to keep our minds fit and healthy. One way to do so is to incorporate mental dexterity exercises in our lives. Healthline advises “Including mental dexterity exercises into your daily routine can help you reap the benefits of a sharper mind and a healthier body for years to come.” I agree with Healthline because I found that the more I helped my body become fit, the more my mind became fit as well.
Want to start your path to physical and mental fitness? We have an event called Women’s Safety Awareness on the 20th of April at The Lion and Rose Pub (842 NW Loop 410 Suite 115, San Antonio, TX 78216).
