Exercise is good for you. We all know it. Exercise helps lower stress, anxiety, blood pressure, improves heart health, and makes daily movements easier (e.g. walking, vacuuming, picking-up our cats, and so on). It’s important to remember that recovery days are also very important.
While we were designed to move, overworked bodies do not make happy bodies. Exercise can slow down muscle repair and affect all metabolic processes. What can we do when the rest day arrives?
First, resting or being off for a day doesn’t mean that you have to stop moving. You can still do light activities such as walking, dancing for 10 minutes or doing some light mobility exercises (think slow and low-intensity yoga), to break up your rest days.
These products will help you get back to work quickly, no matter how easy or hard you are taking it. These products can be found in your local store or online. It includes everything you need, from feminine care to wellness tools and supplements.
