Optimum health is not only about exercising, it’s a complete package of self care with a good balance of all the essentials required.
As well as pushing yourself to your limits when you train, you also need to consider taking adequate rest and getting sufficient sleep.
You might be strictly focused on the best nutrition but it’s also ok to ease up and indulge in the occasional treat.
Even if if you are working so hard towards your goals, taking a breather to enjoy times with friends will benefit your progress rather than hold you back.
Be greedy - get the lot...
take the fun with the hard work, the cake with the clean eating, the relaxation with the drive, the stretch with the strength, the laughter with the pain! Find your balance, make it enjoyable.
It’s not just the arrival that counts - it’s the entire journey.
