In this day and age many of us engage in super active lifestyles on top of working a 40+ hour week. In such cases it might seem like it's a good idea to take one full day off and do nothing. However, that one day off you take is actually a perfect opportunity to stay active while giving your body a rest from the abuse you've been putting it through all week. Below are a few ways to engage in active recovery, which will help you be more productive and experience new levels of wellness. 1.) Do Yoga Yoga is a great way to engage your body while also stretching out your muscles and giving your joints some much-needed TLC. 2.) Go on a Hike If you run, maybe taking a day off can mean going up to the mountains and going on a 5-mile hike. You'll still feel the burn without pushing yourself to exertion. It will still count as a day off! 3.) Paddleboarding Paddleboarding is actually a fantastic way to engage your core while at the same time enjoying nature. Runners, athletes, and martial artists can all count a day of paddleboarding as a day off. 4.) See Your Local Chiropractor Seeing your local chirorpactic care specialist is a great way to engage in active recovery on your day off.
