So much is going on but I saw this article and wanted to share it

This morning, The Morning Chalk Up featured something about rest and recovery. THIS IS A THING. I wear a Whoop strap to monitor this … but I have SO MANY friends who don’t think that rest is as important as working hard (truth hint: nutrition is probably the most important part in this transformation journey).

The morning newsletter says: “Rest up, buttercup. Especially now that the season is changing this is a great time to focus on recovery for a hot minute. And we mean actual recovery like meal prepping, sleep, massage, meditation, socializing and believe it or not, doing nothing or lying on the couch watching your favorite series.” It comes with this link: Rest and Recovery Article which states, “In our modern society, rest is often undervalued. While hard work is being applauded, taking time off to unwind is perceived almost as a guilty indulgence. In media success is advertised with pain and discomfort but in real life, the latter is most often associated with burnouts, injuries and chronic fatigue. Results come from keeping your body and mind healthy. Part of staying on track with your health is paying attention to recovery. Recovery is a sum of thought-through actions such as meal prepping, sleep, massage, meditation, socializing and believe it or not, doing nothing or lying on the couch watching your favorite series. In this article, we present you with four ways to improve your recovery.”  Go read it!
