The main purpose of the ‘Recovery’ phase is to regain energy, but in addition this is the phase where you are most likely to gain a better perspective on your thoughts, emotions and challenges.
It is a myth to think of Recovery as wasted time. This stage is actually where you are most likely to have a good idea, change your perspective and progress an idea subconsciously.
The benefits of a strong recovery routine are therefore more than just better wellbeing, though this is the most important.
In addition, people with strong Recovery routines tend to think more clearly, have better insights and sustain their performance over the long-term.
A strong daily Recovery routine is the foundation of sustainable high-performance. As any athlete will tell you, there is no ‘performance’ without recovery.
