Health Tip of the Day ~ 5 Reasons to a Rest Day from Exercise

Taking a rest day from exercising is essential for several reasons:

    1. Helps prevent injury: Rest days allow the body to recover from the stress and strain of exercise. Overworking your muscles can lead to injury, especially if you are engaging in high-intensity workouts.
    2. Prevents burnout: Taking a break from exercise helps prevent burnout, which can occur when you push yourself too hard without sufficient rest. Burnout can lead to a lack of motivation, decreased performance, and even physical and mental exhaustion.
    3. Enhances performance: Rest days allow the body to rebuild and repair, which can lead to increased strength and endurance during workouts. Without adequate rest, your body may not have the energy to perform at its best.
    4. Boosts immune system: Exercise can temporarily weaken your immune system, making you more susceptible to illness. Rest days allow your body to focus on repairing any damage and strengthening your immune system.
    5. Improves mental health: Exercise is an excellent way to relieve stress and boost mood, but too much exercise can have the opposite effect. Taking a rest day can help you relax and reduce stress levels, leading to improved mental health.

Overall, taking a rest day is crucial for maintaining a healthy balance between exercise and recovery, allowing you to reap the full benefits of your workout routine.

Poem of the Day ~ Dreams


D. H. Lawrence

All people dream, but not equally.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind,
Wake in the morning to find that it was vanity.

But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people,
For they dream their dreams with open eyes,
And make them come true.


Inspiring Quote of the Day ~ Dream, Dream, & Dream Some More

“It is better to have dreamed a thousand dreams that never were than never to have dreamed at all.”

Feeling Good Tip of the Day ~ Tweak the Day for a Great Day

Sun yourself in the morning. Sunshine helps wake you up, nourishes your body, and improves your mood. While too much sun can damage your skin, too little sun can cause vitamin deficiency and illness. Put on some sunscreen if you are a fair-skinned and head outside in the morning.[1]

  • Take a brisk walk.
  • Eat breakfast outside if the weather permits.
  • Get out of the sun if you feel dehydrated, dizzy, or disoriented.
  • If you are prone to sunburns, stay out of the sun from 10am-3pm, when the sun is strongest.


NOTE: We easily fall into habits. Most of our habits help us to navigate the day. Our habits, however, can get us stuck in a rut. Think about how you start your day. Same old, same old, right? What if you got up 15 minutes earlier and went for a brisk walk? The slight change in a habitual routine may make your day a great one.
