Stress + Rest = Growth
The simple equation that makes you better at everything. 💯
Studies show that both the body and the brain respond to stress by becoming stronger, as long as the period of stress is followed by adequate rest and recovery. Pushing too hard too often, stress without rest, doesn’t lead to growth. It leads to fatigue & burnout mentally, or pain & injuries physically.
Just as the best breakthrough ideas occur in the shower and not at the chalkboard, the greatest physical growth occurs in the periods of rest, after we have stressed the body with work.
Making time and scheduling in regular maintenance massages allows both; the body to physically repair and the brain to mentally de-stress and recalibrate.
Have the courage to rest and recover 😌
