#Lawnguru is like Uber for your Lawn… Use my code “sylviarox5” for $5 discount #MotownMom (ad) For more details, view here

Being a single mom in the city, it’s really hard to have a dependable person to cut your lawn, when you want it cut.

Now that my son is not around as much, it’s even more difficult and I can’t trust everyone to come out and do a good job.

So when I found the LawnGuru services through Amazon home and business services I was in like Flynn… (I actually don’t know what that means), but I was in love.

I downloaded the Lawnguru app from my Google Play services (because Androids rule) and then I added my property and a credit card. It was really simple. Since my lawn grows when it wants to, I wasn’t locked into a contract. I could step up a one time use when I wanted and then I requested service.

It really feels like Uber for lawn care because depending on the weather and my bank account, I can’t always cut the lawn.

Having this service assures me I can get the lawn cut when I need it cut and keeping my property looking good.

P.S. They also do snow removal also

I highly recommend this service and please use my code “sylviarox5” for $5’s off your next service.

For first time users, you can get $15 off your first request “OwkUnuxZIE”

Mental Health Activity Center Features Axe Throwing & Plate Breaking Rooms

New Southfield Facility Specially Designed for Users to Destress and Decompress

DETROIT – February 22, 2022– High energy stress relieving and mental health improvement activities are a perfect antidote to COVID-induced isolation and the frustrations of everyday life. Some people get their release from exercise but there are more fun, direct ways to let off steam. A new facility, 1:11 The Collective, is metro Detroit’s first interactive experience with physical activities tailored as release-valves for life’s pressures, allowing users to release tension in rejuvenating and enjoyable ways. Located at 15618 W. 10 Mile Road, Southfield, Michigan 48075, 1:11 The Collective is now open for stress relief here with sessions starting at $30 an hour. 

The facility houses specially designed rooms with nontraditional therapeutic activities, including axe throwing, the Break Room for plate smashing sessions, an affirmation wall, speed bagging, sound therapy, and full-body massage chairs. To help clients disconnect from distractions and reconnect with the inner self, there will be couples’ activities, yoga and therapeutic classes. This safe space to release stress will also offer virtual reality therapy.

1:11 The Collective was founded by Danielle Cato, a licensed clinician in school-based settings and in private practice.  She says the business’s name combines the number one, for independence, with the number 11, for motivation – and that it is styled as 1:11 to indicate that the time is right to form empowering collectives.

 “I have worked in the mental health sector for years while studying various forms of clinical services,” Cato says. “From experience, I have adapted a nontraditional framework that includes an immersive opportunity to become mentally healthy.”

Access to 1:11 The Collective will start at $30 an hour, with monthly memberships for some of the classes. Clients must be 16 or older, and at least 18 for the axe throwing room. There will be trained attendants on site and there are no fitness requirements for participants. Tickets can be purchased at Follow on Instagram at @111thecollective.
