Catch some zzzz’s to catch those gains!

We live in a world today that constantly tells us to “go-go-go!” We are hit from every possible angle that we need to be more, do more, & go more! While this motivated attitude is extremely important to have & to succeed in life, we can’t forget the importance of rest & recovery in our lives. Rest & recovery play into so many aspects of our health!

So...what are the benefits of rest & recovery?
*Improved memory
*Improved concentration & judgement
*Reduces Stress
*Increases Optimism
*Improves insulin sensitivity
*Improves fat loss
*Regulate hormone levels
*Regulate appetite
*Improves 2 main hormones that control hunger
*Decreases cortisol

What are my personal tips to improve rest & recovery?
*Make a plan (children’s bath time, cleaning up kitchen, etc)
*Create a routine (read a book, skincare routine, etc)
*Shut off the screens (so guilty of not doing this myself!)
*Taking Supplements to help fill in the nutritional gaps! My fave for rest & recovery is "REST!"  It is a form of "sequential gel technology" that was created to give the body essential nutrients needed to offer a restful & calming effect!

This is why I incorporate REST days into my "6 Week Shred" program! It is essential to reach those health & wellness goals! Only a few spots remain for my Jan 6th group! Sign up today! Set yourself up not only for a great new year but amazing new decade!
