Proper Recovery

With outdoor activities on the rise due to COVID, many have found themselves focusing more on exercise or at least are out and about more enjoying activities like hiking and biking. What many people fail to realize however is the need for good recovery. Recovery can come in many forms!

1) Icing - If you're the type of person who has ongoing flareups, it may be best for you to recover from a long hike or bike ride with an ice bath or an ice pack. Icing prevents inflammation in the area of recurring pain and can reduce swelling, thus keeping you out of pain and remaining active.

2) Rest days! - Overuse is such a common "active lifestyle" injury. It's very important to know and listen to your body. When your body becomes fatigued it usually loses form and when that happens injuries can occur. 3) Good sleep - A study in the journal SLEEP confirms the role of sleep in performance with results that show declines in split-second decision making following poor sleep. Results also showed increased accuracy in well-rested subjects. Sleep deprivation has also been seen to decrease the production of glycogen and carbohydrates that are stored for energy use during physical activity.
