In a constant on-the-go world, RECOVERY is key.
When we hear the word recovery, we usually think of physical, but mental recovery is just as important.
Here are some of my favorite recovery tips:
1. Mentally unwind. At a certain point before bed, start to wind down for the night. Stop checking work emails. Stop having stressful conversations. If you have pent up stress, try a long walk outside, light yoga or stretching.
2. Take a bath or long relaxing shower. Spend extra time on your beauty routines. I love using a face mask & doing facial massage in a robe with a podcast or relaxing music playing.
3. Sleep 7+ hours a night. Figure out how much you need and commit to getting it. Go to bed before you’re tired. Make your bedroom a zen place for sleep. Burn some lavender essential oils before bed or put them on your pillow – or both! Be extra, nobody else will know, except your husband who then wants oils on his pillow too HA!
