Fall can be a crazy time for everyone.  Make sure you are getting the most out of your training by reducing stress with these simple changes.  The bolded tips are basically free so NO EXCUSES!

  • Eat clean! Paleo, elimination diet, etc. — you know what works for you. And yes, this means no or little drinking.
  • Sleep 8-9 hours a night.  We know how busy you are, but do your BEST!
  • DRINK WATER!  

“Studies have shown that being just half a liter dehydrated can increase your cortisol levels.” Read more here.

How much should you be drinking per day?  37ml/kg of body weight per day.

So if you weigh 140lbs = 63 kg x 37 ml = 2.3 liters per day

We have previously mentioned The Environmental Working Group here and their very cool website –www.ewg.org.

The site provides thousands of guides, databases, and watchdog reports to identify safe products. It’s a tremendous resource to help you understand which products are safe to use, so you can avoid loading your body with toxins (such as parabens).

Now you can carry them in your pocket!  EWG has released two free apps.  Be sure to check them out!
