Are You Looking After Yourself When It Comes To Recovery?
When starting a new routine, you NEED TO REMEMBER TO TAKE SOME TIME TO REST (lol yeah I know what you’re thinking) but it is important.. your body needs it! ✨
Rest days are boring when you're in a fab routine, BUT your body needs time to recover, repair and refuel 💪🏼
Don’t feel bad about ‘doing nothing’ - your body will seriously be thanking you for it ✅
So what can your rest day look like?
REST DAYS CAN LOOK LIKE:
AN ACTIVE REST DAY
Going for a light walk for some sunlight!
Focus on your mind-health and try some meditation!
A STRETCH DAY
A day to focus on stretching properly, without rushing!
GET OUTDOORS & EXPLORE
Go to the beach, go to the markets, go to an art gallery, etc.
Keep your body and mind active, wander and explore!
I honestly think I originally hurt my back in the beginning because I was training twice a day, without any days off (I was a personal trainer and I bloody loved to train!) and NO stretching!!
I definitely know within that I didn’t give my body a chance to properly recover, which is what made my back give in.
SO moral of the story.. LOOK AFTER THAT BODY! Book in your workout days, but book in your rest days too 💛
