Sleep off the stress

Sleep is really important when it comes to recovery. To make sure you sleep easy in this stressful time, use your breathing to put you to sleep.

Put one hand on your chest and one on your belly. Follow your breath without trying to control it while silently repeating the words “in” and “out”.

Gently prolong the exhalation and allow the inhalation to take care of itself. This will help to deepen and slow down your breath, which activates the vagus nerve which controls the relaxation response.
