Improve your Mood with these Drinks & Foods

September 13, 2014 2 min read 1 Comment

While at work for 9 hours a day, I started looking into different ways I could improve my mood. Not only for myself, but in the best interest of my co-workers!  Trying to not drink as much coffee, I needed to find an alternative… and I stumbled upon these few foods and drinks that are said to improve your mood! Cucumber Water -  One thing I can’t stand to drink, or have in my water atleast is lemon. BUT one thing that is def a must try is cucumber water!  Best part is it is so easy to make at home, and it has been said to approve your mood. Commonly used in spas, I gave this simple drink a try. Just chop up a cucumber and let it sit in chilled water for a few minutes. Very refreshing! Dark Chocolate – Dark chocolate has nutrients called Flavonoids which helps boost thinking power. As if you needed another reason to want chocolate. I sometimes keep a handful of Dove Dark Chocolate pieces at my desk when I need a little pick me up – in moderation of course! A Crisp apple – A medium apple contains about 100 calories and approx. 20 grams of sugar. The  Calorie elements in one apple includes protein, fats and carbs like sugar and starch. Your body will process these nutrients and give you fuel for your cells – aka an apple gives you energy! Edamame – Best part about edamame is it has become such a convenient snack to get your hands on.  My freezer always has a few bags of frozen edamame for when I’m looking for a quick easy snack. Just microwave for steam them for a few minutes and you’ve got yourself a protein-packed snack! Almonds – You’ll always find an “emergency” pack of almonds in my desk, sitting right next to protein shake powder. Almonds will boost your Vitamin E which is helpful to your brain. A must need snack for the long days at work. Jasmine rice with butter – I was really excited when I heard about this one. I recently switched from plain brown rice to using Jasmine brown rice. Not only does it taste 100x better but it’s good for you and your health too. Greek Yogurt with Honey and Bran – not a typical snack when dieting for a show or photo-shoot for me but if you’re going to eat yogurt, Greek is def the way to go!  I love using honey as an alternative to sugar. All the ingredients together and you have a perfect little one the go snack. Green Tea – Green tea is suppose to be calming. Green tea has antioxidants to help blood flow and enhance memory and mood. So zen. Celery and fennel salad – this is one that I still need to try, but sounds delish! It was brought to my attention from a site I read one time, even though I love celery and peanut butter, I would def try the fennel salad! Anyone out there have any other foods/drinks that help boost your mood?!  Let me know!

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 4-6 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.

Clothing

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.
