Take a break

We are members at Goodlife.  We workout and play squash consistently.  This blog post by Erin Whitney in the Goodlife Newsletter hit me as good timing. Here it is:

The benefits of working out seem endless, you feel happier, healthier, stronger, fitter and the list goes on. It's important to get your exercise in each week but did you know it's equally important to take a break? That's right, you have to listen to your body and when your body is telling you to step back and have a rest, do it!

Here are some suggestions for your next rest day:

Stretching:  Incorporating some stretches into your next rest day is a great idea. Stretching is great 'active recovery' that can help improve flexibility which will most likely improve your workout performance. Whether you attend a yoga class, or simply stretch at home you'll feel refreshed, recharged and ready for your next work out. 

Walking: Go for a leisurely walk. It allows you to be active without exerting yourself too much. Not only is it good from a physical health stand point but walking has many mental benefits as well. It's a great stress reliever, a great way to clear your mind and it acts as a form of meditation. 

A fun activity:  Whether this means getting out and taking your dog to the dog park, going for a bike ride with your family, playing a game of soccer or hockey with your friends you can do anything you want! There are so many great ways to be active and not even realize. The key word is it's supposed to be fun, no need to over exert yourself, just get out there and do something you enjoy. 

What do you like to do on your rest days?
