Your weight loss mindset is everything to achieving your goal and keeping it up over the long term. For years. For a lifetime, if that’s how long you want to keep it up. It may seem like a physical thing, but it really is all in your mind, just like practically everything else. I know that sounds schmaltzy, cheesy, and worthy of an eye-roll, but it’s true.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while (thank you) you’ll know that I exercise for eye health…and eat for it…and take supplements for it. As much as I focus on my fitness, I do have a minor obsession about my vision wellness. By minor obsession, I mean that I think about it very regularly. There are a lot of reason for that, but I won’t bore you with them in this post. I’ve already tapped into it in previous ones.
Post-workout muscle recovery can be an important part of your exercise routine. Most physical trainers will recommend various types of tips, tricks, moves or strategies you can take on after doing something intense. Professional athletes will use them after practice or big events. In this area, ice baths – also known as cold water immersion – have become popular in some fields. But are they right for you?
One of the benefits of regular exercise that guys don’t tend to talk about is its positive impact on mental health issues like anxiety and depression. We don’t mind saying that it’s a good stress buster or that we need it to blow off steam, but we don’t tend to want to call specific issues by name. I’ve talked about this issue in men’s mental health in a previous post, so I won’t spend a lot of time on it here, but the good news is, no matter what you call it, workouts are extremely effective and helpful.
