As a trainer, among the most essential, and typically most ignored methods to assist a clientimprove their health, physical fitness performance, and minimize injury, is sleep. Yes, you read thatcorrectly. S-L-E-E-P! Sleep is an essential aspect for our overall health, specifically when it concerns healing, muscle recoveryand the production of healthy hormonal agents to keep us encouraged and stimulated throughout ourday. But sleeping, like lots of things, if oftentimes much easier stated than done.One of the major obstacles I see effecting my clients sleep patterns is a boost in stresslevels. The a few of the leading factors Ive seen increasing the tension levels lately are a)lifestyle changes b) raising children c) over training d) fluctuations in hormone levels. Formany people, these concerns progress gradually over time, but for others, the shift in our bodies canseem to come overnight.The issue: Stress is normal, and no matter what kind of lifestyle you lead, you can not runfrom it. Whether its external stress, internal stress, or tension induced from those sweatyworkouts you like, your body reads everything as stress. The solution: Teach our body how to movethrough tension. Why? Due to the fact that its one of the most essential ways we can enhance our overallmental, psychological, and physical health.
