STOP, in the name of FUN! We know, you’re busy. With work, school, family, pets, housework, errands, bills to pay, and to-do lists to check off, you’ve been going a mile a minute for way too long. It’s time to prioritize your health and happiness and do something fun.
Fortunately, you’ve come to the right place. Read on to learn why you should stop putting off going to Lanham Skate Center and join us for roller skating fun that will refuel your mind and body.
Why You Need to Have Fun—For Your Own Good!
You’ve heard the saying, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” Well, in reality it won’t just make you dull, it’s actually bad for your physical and mental health! According to researchers, working long hours (55 or more a week, opposed to the standard 40) increases your risk of stroke by 33% and your risk of heart attack by 13%.
So, what can you do about it? It’s actually easy… Or rather, taking it easy! The best way to combat stress is to set aside time for relaxation. You don’t have to go on an expensive vacation (although that never hurts), just try to make sure you’re giving yourself some time each week to ignore work emails, turn off your phone, and enjoy life. If you need more reasons to come to Lanham Skate Center, here are some of the best!
Reasons to Go Skating at Lanham Skate Center
Your Favorite Tunes
There’s one place you can always rely on when it comes to music—the skating rink! We play the best music from the 70s, 80s, 90s 2000s, and today to ensure that everyone is having a blast on the rink. Roll, bounce, slide, and glide along with the beat for a couple hours of unbeatable fun.
Exercise (That’s Actually Fun!)
Speaking of dancing/skating the night away, roller skating is an excellent form of exercise. You can burn a surprising amount of calories, and skating also tones and strengthens your core and legs. You won’t find a more fun way to workout!
Even if you’re not concerned about your own health and stress levels, it’s important to make time for the people you care about. Roller skating is a perfect activity to help you make memories with your favorite people, whether it’s a night out with friends, a family fun afternoon with your kids, a date night with your partner, or a sibling skating reunion. Everyone from little kids to senior adults can learn to skate, so nobody feels left out!
