One of the most overlooked and underappreciated aspects of health and wellness is recovery. As mentioned earlier, misery loves company so we've praised the 3 hour training session mentality, the "go hard or go home" mentality, and the "no pain no gain" mindset.
Believe it or not, you will not reap the benefits of your hard work if you're not prioritizing rest and recovery.
Some of the best things you can do for yourself along your health and wellness journey are:
Sleep (a lot)Prioritize nutrition (vitamins and minerals from greens, too)Stay hydratedWarm up and cool down before and after training sessionsTake rest daysDisconnect from the busyness of the worldGet awayMeditate
The above tools will help you stay balanced and healthy while you work hard in the gym.
