Feeling sore?  Get to bed earlier, Fredericksburg!

One of the most forgotten parts of muscle recovery is sleep.  With busy lives, phones that alert us to every social media update, and two or four legged kids to care for, sleep is often sacrificed.  This comes at a cost to our health, stress level, and muscle recovery.  Our bodies use sleep to recharge, and without it we suffer from depressed immune systems, fatigue, and overwhelm.   Check out this article for a bit more on the science of sleep for athletes.  

One of the ways I help my private clients to improve their sleep pattern is with a bedtime routine.  It might include a hot bath, reading, enjoying a funny tv show, some restorative yoga and stretching, foam rolling and calming essential oils.  Bedtime routines help you wind down from a busy day and signal the body and mind that bedtime is approaching.  You can begin building this routine with one step each week, maybe the bath or the stretching, and then when you are consistent with that first step, add a second step.  In this way, you can learn what works best for you and keep the parts that cause the zzz's!

If you have any questions about bedtime routines, or need some help getting started, just find me before or after a class, or message me!  I'm always happy to help!
