Are you feeling a little beat up by the end of the week? Maybe you feel like your not recovering as fast as you thought you would? Well sometimes it may be that you trained a set of muscles that don’t get as much attention as the others. Or It might be because your recovery process could benefit from some additional actions. I make one of these blogs every once and a while just to remind folks (and myself) to put into effect things throughout your day or week to help you feel better. Not just physically but mentally as well.
Sleep: Gotta have it. As a parent I realize it’s not always up to you how much rest you get a night. However, if I’m going to be real with myself, my phone games and Star Trek binge watching probably keep from a full night of sleep more than my son. So when conditions are prime, take advantage of maybe getting to bed a bit earlier than normal.
Food: Quality and quantity. You need both to thrive. You may eat 4 square a day of crap or eat organic with less than 1400 calories a day. Either way you should/could make some tweaks here and there. Even if it’s just making better decisions on the fly or planning ahead better. Remember there is a lot of gray area between organic-zone-paleo and drive through milkshakes. Explore it a bit. If you need a guide, please ask. 🙂
Water: I’m super bad with this one. In the summer I sweat, like a lot. Because of that, I remember to keep drinking my water throughout the day. In the winter though, I don’t sweat as much and I tend to fall behind a bit. Being dehydrated keeps your systems from really working at maximum capacity. You don’t need to wear a Camel Back to the grocery store or drink water until you urinate perfectly clear. (In fact that’s not good either) just don’t rely on coffee, juice, or sports drinks. They have water but aren’t water.
Again just some things that will hopefully help you feel less tired or sore or any of that.
