3 Reasons A Social Media Vacation Can Benefit Your Mental Health

July 02, 2015 2 min read

You don't realize your dependency on social media until you spend a few days away from it. Coming back from a three day break after spending a wonderful weekend with family, I have noticed that letting myself eat delicious food without Instagramming it, or playing with my dog without Snapchatting it, was a nice vacation. Here are 3 reasons why taking time to "unplug", even for one day, can benefit you.   #1 You won't get bogged down with the drama of others  Even if what they're posting isn't directed to you, you are still involved because you are reading it. Taking a break lets you focus on your life and happiness. Scrolling through the emotional roller coaster of someone else's life doesn't. #2 You stop doing things just to impress social media Something awesome is happening and what is your gut reaction? Pull out your phone. When you're trying to capture it all for your social media audience, you aren't living in the moment. Having an amazing time at a party doesn't need to be fully documented, and having a romantic evening with your special someone doesn't require a selfie...or twelve. #3 You stop comparing yourself to others  Looking at someone's social media pictures, you inevitably have two thoughts. "I'm way better then they are" or "They are way better then I am". Even if we don't admit it, social media makes us constantly compare our life to the lives of others. And it is a very unhealthy behaviour. What are some tips you have for unplugging? What are the benefits you have noticed from taking a social media mini-vacation?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
