We caught up with Sam from O-studio in Christchurch to talk all things recovery and mental wellbeing. O-Studio is a modern wellness facility offering a wide range of services from yoga and meditation classes to ice baths and float tanks!
As athletes, recovery is just as important as the training itself. We are often focused on the outputs of training, the times, the distance, the speeds. But here we discuss what inputs we can do to help promote our recovery to maximise your training.
By investing some time in meditation and mindfulness you can:
- Switch on your parasympathetic nervous system (rest/digest)
- Learn to be present and focused on the moment
- Recover faster from you training
- Lower your overall stress levels
