September 15, 2015 1 min read

This day in age kids have just about every gizmo and gadget under the sun. An iPod, iPad, cell phones, laptops, computers, video games and now there is even DVD’s in the car. They are constantly stimulated and never get any down time. When, God forbid there appears to be nothing to do they announce “I’m bored!” And the proverbial hand to the forehead takes place as parents. boredom Here are some reasons why boredom should be embraced and happen on purpose.
  1. Constant stimulation is not good for children’s mental development - they need down time to have inner reflection.
  2. Being constantly stimulated via social media or DVD’s and the like stun imagination - daydreaming involves the same processes that control imagination and creativity.
  3. Quiet time without even a book is very important for creativity and allows for us to be mindful of our surroundings - gazing at the clouds and listening to nature.
  4. Boredom can allow us to decompress and recharge in a healthy way.
  5. Time away from gizmos and gadgets will lessen the addiction to them.
So the next time you hear “I’m bored”, get excited and show your children how to be bored and embrace it – it is good for them (and you). Do you follow us on Instagram? [caption id="attachment_109236" align="alignnone" width="100"]snapchat code @BodyRockTV[/caption]

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
