The lack of recovery may be hindering your ability to train hard.
The lack of recovery may be preventing you from losing fat.

The list can go on and on….

PMR – Reprogram with progressive muscle relaxation What happens to a kid when he gets bored in school? He becomes restless and can’t sit still. But after playing at recess, he is again able to sit and regain focus. As adults we also build up nervous tension as the day goes on; unfortunately, most of us don’t have recess time to “play it out.” If you find yourself in bed and unable to shut off your brain, nervous tension may be the culprit. Here’s a simple technique that can reverse this nervous tension. It has also been shown to work better than medications for falling asleep faster and staying asleep longer. The technique is called progressive muscle relaxation, or PMR for short. You start out by lying on your back in bed. Move around if you need to, and adjust the sheets or covers to get comfortable. Once you are settled in, begin alternating deep breathing with holding your breath and squeezing your muscles. This is done in steps, working your way through all the muscle groups of the body. Start with your toes and feet, and work your way up. Here it is, in four easy steps: Step 1. Take a deep breath in and hold it for a slow count of 5. As you are holding your breath, contract your toes and the muscles of your feet as tightly as you can. Step 2. After the count of 5, exhale and immediately release all the tension in your toes and feet. Step 3. Take three slow breaths and feel the relaxation in your feet. If they still feel somewhat tense, repeat the first two steps one or two more times. Step 4: After the feet, work upward, muscle by muscle. Next up is your calves, then your thighs, followed by your hips, your abdomen and torso, your arms, and finally your head, neck, and face. (It is common to need an extra cycle or two to get all the tension out of your head and neck area.) The average response to PMR is that a person falls asleep twenty minutes faster and gains thirty to ninety minutes of quality sleep. PMR has also been shown to improve immune function and reset cortisol metabolism.
