Don't Stress

A fitting mantra for every occasion, we know that stress makes us feel terrible but there’s proof it has even more of a negative impact. Stress wreaks havoc on your mind and body… specifically, muscular recovery. A study conducted by the Yale Stress Center and published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise concluded that people who often stress out mentally, take longer to recover from exercise.

“The findings confirm that even the microscopic cellular processes that repair damage within your body are mediated by your state of mind – and that means that stress-reduction approaches like mindfulness and biofeedback could be as important to your physical fitness as crunches,” writes The Globe and Mail.
