After a workout, you should be proud of your accomplishment. With practice, eventually, your body will adjust and will want you to outperform with each session. Mix things up in the manner in which fitness routines interest you.

Naturally, the workout itself is of utmost importance. Never neglect your recovery efforts. It is all too easy to get into the groove of things. One can experience a natural high from outperforming. However, rest is a requirement to achieve improved results.

To stay on course schedule in Rest Days on your calendar weekly. Get into the habit now, until it becomes second nature. An example of a rest day may include taking a meditative walk in the park. Just take in all the sights of the surrounding nature. You should find it to be therapeutic. Allow yourself to clear your mind. Do not even put on your headphones. Take time to listen to the wind, the birds, the squirrels communicate with one another. Enjoy the colors of the grass, leaves, wildlife, clouds, etc. Live in the moment. Be sure to take your time. As a bonus, your skin will take in the sunlight and transform it naturally into Vitamin D. Plants have a photosynthesis and, we have Vitamin D. Pretty cool when you think about it. Nature is amazing.

Your goal should focus on self-care. Allow yourself enough time to stroll or walk briskly at your own pace. Not feeling hurried is ultimately refreshing. If you are lucky, some of your best ideas may appear to you during this time.

Stretching is a must for a truly authentic holistic lifestyle. Sports fanatics get it. It is a shame many of us go through life and neglect doing so daily. You need this in your life like you need air. After stretching for 20 minutes, you should feel limber, possibly energetic. Making time will amplify your stride. Did you know that it is beneficial for football players to take up ballet? Even ballet provides a competitive edge. The football player enhances their sprint and can leap out of the way of the competition as required.

Excogitate adding yoga to your workout recovery arsenal. Yoga entails all of the stretchings a body requires. Look at it like this, stretch or do yoga, and your body will reward you for your efforts. Such activities relieve exhaustion and lethargy. Flexibility is the apex reward.

Postworkout Foods
The following are beneficial: Apples, bananas, chocolate milk, eggs, poultry, berries, peanut butter, tuna, nuts, coconut oil, avocado, and cottage cheese.

Drink plenty of water, and try to aim for a minimum of 8 glasses daily or more. Hydration maintenance is crucial. The reason chocolate milk works well for you is that it contains electrolytes, carbohydrates, and proteins.

Quality of sleep or lack thereof will either make or break us. Poor sleep is known to cause unwanted weight gain. So do the opposite. Make it your mission to gain quality sleep each night to lose weight. Lack of sleep leads to brain fog, lack of concentration, and moodiness. All will reflect on how you work and react to others around you. Everything is connected, even your vibrations. Aim to keep your vibrations up. Good vibrations lead to confidence and a pleasant attitude about life.

What are some of the ways you focus on recovery? Please share your experiences.

  1. A great read with plenty of good advice in this post. Sometimes I fins it hard to get motivated again after a rest day, it’s important to find activities you love for exercising so it’s not a chore and mix it up for variety too. I enjoy bushwalking and mountain biking, so they are my main activities along with some weights every few days and stretching to start every day.

    1. @TashView Thanks for taking time to comment. I agree with you if you don’t mix it up you can easily slip into boredom. I am not at mountain biking level as of now. Perhaps in the future. Stay motivated my friend. 🙂
