Play Hard, Rest Hard
Hopefully your summer has been full of adventure and you have been active as ever. With all the activity and adventure, make sure you are getting your sleep for recovery and make sure you are getting electrolytes to help with the heat.
THINGS TO PRACTICE:
1. Sleep. With increased activity and getting off the beaten path, make sure you are still being conscious of your sleep habits. Strive for 7.5 of sleep as a nightly average each week. Remember sleep cycles take about 90mins and the later part of each cycle is comprised of REM sleep which is where most of the healing and body rebuilding ocurs.
2. Electrolytes. These little minerals can become increasingly important as the temperature gets hotter. They help with fluid balance inside and outside of the cells. Sodium and Potassium are the electrolytes that are most needed, but calcium and magnesium are also important. Replenishing fluids with a low sugar sports drink can help in the summer. Coconut water derivatives are also a great option.
