Lately I’ve been setting new goals for myself – small goals that will set me up for greater success in work, fitness, and overall well-being. My plan is to kill the snooze button, get in an early morning sweat session every weekday, and take one real rest day a week.
Let’s chat about rest.
A real rest day – say what?! While I understand the positive impacts that rest days have on the body including muscle, joint and tendon recovery, immunity support, and for me, brain recovery, I still don’t make them happen mainly because I’m having too much fun getting my sweat on with the Flex & Flow tribe.
My favorite part of HIIT & Flow is that it gives me the motivation to challenge myself until my sweat is pouring and muscles are on fire. And since there are days when I can’t walk after an intense HIIT & Flow session, it’s also taught me that a little rest does the body good. When I take a rest day between HIIT & Flow days, I feel stronger and ready to get after it, rather than my usual muscle fatigue as of late. I realize that rest is beneficial and that it will feel good, so I’ll just have to deal with my FOMO and get a sauna session on, roll out my muscles, and put my legs up the wall for a little restorative yoga.
How do you celebrate a rest day? Do you have a massage booked? Or are you soaking in the tub? Tell me your go-to rest methods!
