No matter how much of an athlete or an active person you are, your body needs at least one day a week to rest, so it can recover, rebuild itself, and make you stronger. Still, if laying in bed all day isn't your cup of tea, you can try with active recovery. These are low impact activities that will keep you moving without straining your body. Learn about a few of them with the post below.

How to Do Active Recovery Right

Yoga

While there different types of yoga with varying degrees of difficulty, it's generally a low impact activity. Through it, you won't only get to stretch your body and keep your muscles moving even on your day off, but you will also give your mind a workout.

Swimming

Being in the water, and going for a few easy laps on the pool can also be incredibly relaxing. Try it for days in which you don't want to make too much effort, but you don't want to sit still, either. Just avoid doing 50 butterfly laps on your active recovery days.

Walking

Last but not least, the easiest way to stay active of all: walking. You can go for a light hike, take your dog out, join a group of friends, go by yourself with your music, or other. Walking can be a soothing activity to help you move and relax at the same time.
