TIPS FOR FASTER WORKOUT RECOVERY
Of course, there are lots of things to help with muscle recovery that are outside the scope of Beta Caryophyllene (BCP Oil), but honestly, everything that I read said that there is no better way to help your muscles recover than by eating healthy foods, getting a good night’s sleep, and reducing stress levels.
|THE REAL RECOVERY HAPPENS WHILE YOU SLEEP!! Living an overall healthy lifestyle is the most important step you can take to maximise your muscle recovery. But no recovery method can make up for poor nutrition and lack of sleep! Sleep is essential for recovery from exercise as restorative functions like muscle growth, tissue repair, protein synthesis and growth hormone release occur mostly during sleep. |
Sleep deprivation has a detrimental impact on cognitive function, mood, and motivation. Sleep deprivation can have a direct impact on training and performance through weariness, or indirectly through increased performance anxiety. Sleep deprivation can also raise the risk of exercise-related injuries.
Taking actions to enhance your sleep is crucial to improving your fitness and overall well-being. So, thanks to Canna Oils BCP‘s ability to bring “balance” to our bodies, which leads to better sleep, our bodies have the best chance to restore and repair!

STRESS – IT WILL AFFECT YOUR RECOVERY!
I also read how stress can affect your recovery time as well. If we only focus on how well we recover from exercise and physical exertion, we may overlook the fact that stress – whether it’s stress on your body or stress on your mind (or both) – plays a role in our overall recovery and affects how soon we’re ready for another workout. It’s a common misconception that once our sore muscles from the previous workout have recovered, we’re ready to go again. But, it is possible that exercising (especially at high intensity) can take a toll on your body if you’re already experiencing high stress levels – even if you don’t feel physically strained.
Even if the stress is purely psychological, it causes physical reactions in your body, such as an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate.
Your autonomic nervous system may be in overdrive if you’re stressed out, working long hours, and trying to manage family, friends, other responsibilities, and workouts with your job.
So exercise can have dual purpose in terms of stress reduction. On the one hand, exercise has obvious benefits and aids in the reduction of mental stress – there’s nothing like a tough, sweaty workout to take your mind off whatever is bothering you.
After working up a sweat, the feel good hormones released by exercise will put a smile on your face, and your work related problems or other stressors will be the furthest thing from your mind (if not, at least, on pause for a while).
Exercise, on the other hand, can put stress and strain on the body. Even if you feel physically fine, a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) session may not be the best way to relieve stress if you’re already stressed out due to work, family, or other issues in your life.
It’s important to remember that training hard can increase your stress levels (especially if you overdo it and always train at a high intensity), but light exercise or active recovery methods (brisk walking) are usually effective at relieving stress.
Working out after a stressful day isn’t always a bad idea, but if you’ve been stressed out and sleep deprived for a long time, your general recovery condition should be taken into consideration while planning your exercises.
So again, here is where Canna Oils BCP steps in!! Canna Oils BCP may help with the relief of stress and anxiety by actively inhibiting the production of cortisol and activating the production of endorphins (the feel good chemical). This helps improve your mood as well as your overall sense of well-being.
