Top 6 Recovery Tips
Seek Recovery every 90 to 120 minutes






Chronobiologists (scientists that study the cyclic phenomena in living organisms) have found that the body’s hormone, glucose, and blood pressure levels drop every 90 minutes or so.  As a result, overall capacity and energy level is compromised if we do not have a recovery period consistent with the body’s natural stress – recovery rhythm. It is recommended we do one of the following 6 recovery tips between every 90 to 120 minutes.

            1. Take 15 – 20 minute Power Nap
            2. Eat some Nutritious Food
            3. Hydrate.  Drink milk, water or a natural juice
            4. Engage in some brief and different physical activity
            5. Change Channels Mentally
            6. Change Channels Emotionally
