Let’s keep this short and sweet and to the point…..
1. Read my blog on sleep.
2. Add more water to your daily routine.
Yup, I hear ya… “how much more?”. The answer is “I don’t know”. My suggestion is first figure out how much water you typically consume over a few days. Now you have a baseline. From that number, then add 8 ounces a day for a week or so and see how that feels. If you like it, which I believe you will, then continue to add. Yes, there is such a thing is too much water. Maybe shoot for 60% of your body weight in ounces. So if you weigh 100lbs, your daily goal would be at least 60 ounces (60% of 100) not taking in to account all the moving and sweating you do. One fun fact that I learned last week and maybe you didn’t know…. The nucleus or center portion of each disc in your spine contains up to 88% water when the disc is healthy.
3. Pain Management.
People don’t realize how much energy it takes to manage pain on a daily basis. Ever wonder why things almost always hurt more in the evening? You are out of energy to manage the pain most likely. We all have pain….be it physical, emotional and perceptional. Take care of you to reduce your pain just a little… preferably WITHOUT NSAIDS. Here are a few suggestions:
- Physical Therapy
- Slow easy movement with your own body (body flow, walking, Tai chi, etc)
- Research on ginger, curcumin/tumeric, bromelain and magnesium
- My blog on sleep
- Hot tub
- More water (See #2 above)
- Rest at least 2 days from your training
