Want to feel better? Start by addressing these “S’s” (if you’re up for a quick read you don’t want to miss the 3 “H’s” at the end of this post either)
Starch: Are you surprised to see starches on the list? You know we love carbs over here right? They should not be feared. If you’ve been trying to get all your carbs from green veggies and fruits give the starches a try and see how you feel.
Sleep: surprising to no one that this is on our list, yet the most commonly sabotaged habit we see. We’ll say it again if you ain’t sleeping you ain’t gonna lose the body fat, you ain’t gonna seem them muscle gains, and you sure as heck ain’t gonna feel “optimal” every day. What’s even sadder is that you may never know what “feeling good” actually feels like! Get some zzz’s ok? 👊🏻
Sauna: there’s a ton of great research coming out on the benefits of sauna use. Infrared sauna’s, in particular, are showing some really promising improvements in health markers. It’s a great way to get sweaty and promote relaxation. Remember for every “stressor” you have in your life you should have a way to recover from that stress. BALANCE.
Salt: Are you getting enough? Salt helps support your nervous system, helps you stay hydrated and balances you’re electrolytes. If you’re training hard don’t skip out this!
Sex: Self-explanatory? Get some.
Bonus “H’s” for taking the time to read this far. One way to measure progress on the “feeling good” scale is waking up every morning:
We’re gonna guess the majority of you remember the 3 H’s better than the 5 “S’s” 😉
