Having spent the last two years indoors in a pandemic has been a doorway to more than just new world perspectives. It has put additional importance on looking inwards, towards our own body and wellbeing. As health and healing become a core of the new normal life, working out and maintaining an active routine has become an even bigger priority.
At a glance, having a healthy, active lifestyle seems all too simple. But it's more than just doing a few exercises and calling it a day. There is no universal threshold to the intensity of exercises, so while your routine may consist of just a few minutes of walking and a stretch, even that requires your body to have some form of recovery and healing. When paired with a routine packed with power yoga, cardio, high-intensity sets, it can all collectively accumulate stress on the muscles.
Exercising utilizes the body’s stored energy reserve. Too much exercise without a break leads to higher amounts of tissue breakdown, leaving them with no ability or energy to restore themselves. Consistent wear and tear can lead to deeper damage to your skeletal muscles and even long-lasting chronic pain and inflammation.
Rest, or off days are necessary for the body. It is the time when the body works to repair, rebuild and boost itself. Oftentimes there is guilt or hesitation to take rest days when it comes to achieving health goals. But recovery is equally if not more essential to the process of getting fit. After all, a healthy lifestyle and wellbeing are all about maintaining a balanced, optimal state of your body.
Creating a Balance
Apart from giving your body and mind a much-needed break, there are many ways you can help your body in its journey of healing and rejuvenation.
Food is the ultimate fuel for the body. Eating the right foods means giving your body all it needs to carry out its repair. Foods rich in amino acids, antioxidants and protein help give your muscles an extra boost of nourishment and even protect them from further wear and tear.
There is nothing more healing than a massage after a day of intense activity. Massages are a great way to push your body further into the healing process. They help loosen up tight spots while increasing oxygen and blood flow into your muscles. The slow movement helps remove the build-up of lactic acid that is often the cause of intense cramps and soreness. Apart from the relaxing motions, massages also help lessen the tension on your mind and put your body at ease.
A Companion from the Nature
As a never-ending treasure trove of healing gems, nature has a bounty of soothing companions to offer. And from this vast array, there is one ancient herb that has become synonymous with healing and relief like no other “Cannabis”.
Touted as a relaxer, stress buster and mood booster, there are many abilities that Cannabis has been known for. But its most proficient ability is "relief". From pain, inflammation and even stress, it is one versatile antidote that has received nothing but praise throughout Ayurveda, the so-called holy grail of medicine. This traditional herb has been a reliable companion to many when everything else has failed.
