Tired? Hurt? Rejuvenate!
Life getting you down? Are you not where you want to be? Tired? Hurt? Rejuvenate!
It happens to all of us at one time or another. Life happens! Work happens! We can get can run down. Sometimes we can get tired. Having you been feeling tired? If you don’t have enough energy, you probably need to work out a little more. It can seem counter-intuitive, but most likely you need to keep a regular workout routine. Consistency and movement will keep you feeling great.
What if it’s not fatigue? Injuries can be a drag and definitely require recovery time. Sometimes it’s just a twinge, but other times injuries need medical attention. It is important to listen to your body. Don’t overtax your muscles and cause further injury. Use ice, use heat, get a massage, or go to the doctor. Muscle soreness is one thing, but pain is a different story. Don’t ignore pain and allow it to get worse. Listen to your body and get rest when necessary.
After rehabbing your injuries, find your routine again. It can be really challenging to get back into it when you have to take time off, but don’t give up. Press on! You have to get “it” back. Even after being tired, or hurt, it is necessary to rejuvenate. Maybe you need to change your routine in order to not aggravate your injury. Change can be good. Modify, but don’t give up!
Recently I saw someone get hurt. She is taking measures to rehab the injury. The fire inside is there, and she wants to get back to regular workouts. She is taking the injury seriously, but at the same time she continues to have the passion for a really good workout. I know that she won’t give up and very soon, I will see her back at the gym kicking butt!
That is her goal and it should be yours too!
