Easter Celebrations

Saturday, April 20th, 2019

Easter is almost here. Whether you are commemorating a religious holiday and Jesus’ crucifixion, or observing the day of springtime fun, there are sure to be activities that you will enjoy.

 

Many parks and churches are hosting Easter egg hunts. There are a few notable holiday happenings around the city. Callanwalde Fine Arts Center will hold an Eggstravaganza event, while Callaway Gardens is pairing its egg hunt with a 5K race, a kids’ race, entertainment and an Easter Sunday morning sunrise service. Stone Mountain Park will also host an Easter Sunday service, both at the base and the top of the mountain.

 

Other activities during Easter weekend include the Georgia Renaissance Festival in Fairburn; several restaurants serving Easter brunch, including Park Tavern and downtown’s Ritz Carlton; and free entrance into several area national parks.

 

Celebrate. Commemorate. Invigorate yourself with a relaxing weekend of enjoyable activities.

 

Happy Easter from Master Shim’s World Class Tae Kwon Do.

Exercise – Good for the Mind

Monday, April 15th, 2019

April is National Autism Awareness Month. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) describes a group of neurodevelopmental disorders. The goal of the month designation is to increase awareness about autism itself, as well as anything relating to the condition. That includes understanding methods that can be used to help those dealing with autism. One such method is exercise.

 

According to autism.com, studies show that vigorous exercise at least 20 minutes in length, 3-4 times per week, can help decrease hyperactive or destructive behaviors. It also helps stave off unhealthy weight gain that can creep in with a sedentary lifestyle. If a loved one in your life is living with autism, healthy options are available to help.

 

Anyone seeking an activity that will get the blood pumping, the mind engaged and offer good clean fun doesn’t have to look any further. Master Shim’s World Class Tae Kwon Do may be the perfect physical exercise outlet for all ages.
