Supplements for Recovery

Are soreness & fatigue holding you back? At the start of a new year, physical fitness is often top of mind for many people. But what happens when we think we've fallen short on our resolutions or goals?

We beat ourselves up, assuming it’s a lack of willpower or commitment. But what if it’s not? What if it's because we're unknowingly not fueling our bodies with the nutrients it needs to recover & heal?

Read on to learn about our favorite supps to aid in recovery, from soreness to sleep to your mood!

But, I'm not stressed

I can’t stress this enough. We all have too much stress.

Just because you don’t “feel” stressed (maybe you have a great happy perfect life, congrats!) doesn’t mean your body isn’t under a ton of stress each day. There are many different ways we put stress on our bodies and these are just a few examples. The more ways you reduce your stress burden, the happier your body will be.

Stress worsens our mood, depletes nutrients, impacts our sleep, burdens our organs, worsens digestion and blood sugar balance, affects our hormones, and more!

3 Ways to Sleep Better

These 3 things are the FASTEST ways to improve your sleep. Of course, there may be other underlying issues to address, but this is a darn good place to start right now.

1. Get 10-20 minutes of morning sunshine! This is how you advance your circadian rhythm so that you get tired earlier in the evening. If it's freezing outside, bundle up! It's not your skin that matters in this situation. Your EYES are all that need to get that morning sun for sleep's sake.

2. NO CAFFEINE after 12 pm. It takes most people ten hours for your body to metabolize caffeine and get it out of your body. Some people it takes even longer! So if you're still not falling asleep quickly, you might want to cut caffeine altogether.

3. Eliminate blue light OR wear blue blockers after dark to block all light that is disruptive for sleep. I dare you to try not to fall asleep watching Netflix with these bad boys on!
