At Home Guide to Surviving COVID-19

With the emergence of COVID-19, we’ve had to make adjustments to the way we go about our everyday lives. Adjusting to new societal norms can be tough for many of us, but we must sacrifice ‘normal’ for a while to flatten the curve. If you are looking for ways to stay entertained (and not go insane) at home, you’ve come to the right place! 

1. Get Some Exercise

    • While we practice ‘social-distancing,’ it’s so important to also practice self-care. Get into a good morning and night skincare routine because when we, look good we feel good!

3. Spring Cleaning

      • With all the extra time on our hands, why not get a jump start on spring cleaning.
        1. Clean Out Your Closet:
          • Spring and summer are approaching which means warmer weather, so it’s time to update your closet. Put away cold-weather clothing and free up space in your closet by donating worn out or out of style clothes.
        2. Reorganize Your Garden
          • Spring is a great time to get your garden ready. Seeds grow quickly during spring, so get out there and start planting trees and flowers. 
          • Pulling weeds is no fun, but this will give you some exercise while also cleaning up the garden, just in time for summer!
        3. Clean, Clean, Clean
          • With the Coronavirus going around, it is essential to clean and disinfect your home. 
          • Researchers have found that this virus can live on plastic and stainless steel for up to three days. Disinfecting the house is something we should all be doing. 
          • Take an hour every day to disinfect your home. This will help lower your risk of infection and anyone else in your household. 

4. Pick Up a New Hobby

    • With extra time in many of our daily schedules, now is the best time to pick up a new hobby! 
      1. Explore Your Creative Side
        • There are endless amounts of crafts you can do while at home during this time such as knitting, scrapbooking, jewelry making, and/or drawing. 
        • Pinterest is a great website to find more DIY crafts to keep yourself busy and relieve some stress during this time of uncertainty.
      2. Learn a New Langage
        • Have you ever wanted to learn a new language but could never find the time? Well, with lots more time on your hand, you can now! 
        • There are many apps out there that can help you get a jump start on this. Our personal favorite is Duolingo and you can take advantage of this free program from the computer or by downloading their app. The app’s colorful interface and game-like exercises help motivate you and make the experience more fun! 
      3. Do a Puzzle
        • Puzzles and games are the best way to keep you entertained, and the most difficult ones will keep you occupied for days.
        • It is vital to keep your brain stimulated during a time where there is not much to do, puzzles are great for this and can be done by yourself (if you’re in quarantine alone).
        • Puzzles have been said to decrease feelings of anxiety and increase mental well-being. Staying calm and easing stress is essential for our mental health right now when so much feels so wrong. With a few hours (or days) and a little determination, anyone can piece together a beautiful landscape. 

Adjusting our daily lives and not having a routine can be scary for many of us. The best way to combat these feelings and emotions is to keep busy and try to ‘normalize’ daily routine as much as possible. We hope these ideas have inspired you to do something fun during this time of uncertainty. Remember that this time will pass, we must be kind to one another and not forget that we are all in this together!

What Happens to Your Muscles If You Don’t Continue Strengthening Them?

Strengthen Your Muscles, or You’ll Lose Them…

The CoolTone device is designed to bring your healthy lifestyle to the next level. It can be hard and time-consuming to get to the gym every day while also managing your day-to-day activities. CoolTone is a revolutionary new technology that can increase muscle mass. This means you will look toned, feel stronger, and look slimmer with less effort than ever before. Results are obtained through your initial 4-6 treatments within two weeks. To maintain the results achieved from CoolTone, it is crucial patients come in for ‘maintenance’ treatments.

Many people do not realize that when you stop using (or sculpting) your muscles, you will very quickly lose strength. The longer you wait, the harder it is to get back to those strong, lean looking muscles. According to experts, it varies depending on your age and fitness level, but it may be quicker than you think.

Your muscles will not disappear entirely, but there will be a noticeable decrease in strength power. The decrease will not be a lot at first, but the longer you wait, the more strength you will lose. Muscle mass (the size of your muscles) begins to diminish after about four-six weeks of inactivity. This is why it is essential to follow up with your BodySquad specialist after 30 days and map out a ‘maintenance plan’ so you do not lose those newly toned muscles!

Where Does Fat Go After CoolSculpting?

Fat Cells Don’t Stand a Chance Against CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting, if you are not familiar, is a non-invasive treatment designed to remove areas of stubborn fat on the body permanently. During a CoolSculpting procedure, fatty tissue is suctioned into an applicator that cools the fat cells. The cold temperatures numb the area being treated and freeze the cells for good. This all sounds great, but many people wonder where the fat cells go after they’re frozen. Keep on reading to find out more!

Where Does the Fat Go After a CoolSculpting Treatment?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions we get from patients. CoolSculpting involves no medications, needles, or cannulas, apposed to other fat removal procedures, such as Liposuction. However, one of the similarities CoolSculpting and Liposuction have in common is that the fat leaves the body for good. Because there is no incision and the whole process of CoolSculpting is done outside of the body, many individuals wonder where the fat goes.

CoolSculpting uses a freezing process called Cryoliplysis (freezing fat), which targets and kills the treated fat cells. The process of CoolSculpting targets fat without harming or freezing any of the surrounding tissue. Once the cells have died, they are processed and removed through your lymphatic system. This happens over 3-4 months, so your body is not overwhelmed with dead fat cells. 

Will the Fat Come Back?

It’s important to note that the fat cells cannot return after CoolSculpting. We are born with a finite number of fat cells. The total number of fat cells in the body remains the same from birth until adulthood. When we lose weight, the fat cells shrink, and when we gain weight, the fat cells expand; however, they do not multiply. CoolSculpting will eliminate a portion of fat cells within a targetted area, and the fat cells are permanently reduced. 

Interested in CoolSculpting?

If CoolSculpting sounds like something you’d be interested in or if you want to know more about it, check out our website or come in for your FREE body consultation. We want to help you sculpt your dream body because at BodySquad we believe looking good feels good!

Got Love (Handles)? This Gift Is For You!

Regardless of your Valentine’s Day plans (or lack thereof!), there’s nothing better than feeling confident in your skin. In honor of the day of love and to show our appreciation to you, we’re offering a fantastic Valentine’s Day giveaway! Read on to learn how you can win 2 FREE BodySculpting Treatments at BodySquad.

Build & Tone with CoolTone – The Giveaway

At BodySquad, we are giving away a FREE CoolTone treatment to you and a special someone, whether this is your BFF or significant other, there’s nothing better than treating with the ones you love! 

The revolutionary CoolTone device is designed to strengthen and tone your muscles. Unlike its sister device, CoolSculpting, which works by freezing away your fat cells, CoolTone utilizes a technology called magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) to induces involuntary muscle contractions. The contractions cause the muscles to strengthen, leaving you with a more toned and firmer physique. The treatment is pain-free, and one session is only 30 minutes.
