Boston is a very active city. With so many bike trails, hiking trails, and parks to run and walk in, staying fit has never been easier. In the summer, we can kayak in the river or run in the parks, in the winter we can partake in crossfit or just go to a gym. Boston has become one of the fittest cities in the nation, and it only adds to the charm this city has to offer.
While we take care of our bodies by working out, we need to also take care of them post-workout. If we want to maintain this type of healthy existence, then we need to be cognisant of keeping our bodies healthy for the workout as well. Here are some ways to ensure our bodies are healthy and happy for many workouts to come.
Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. These areas and reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the organs and person’s general health. If you use your hands and feet a lot to stay in shape (which you obviously do) then you need to take care of them.
If reflexology seems to be a little to holistic or hippie for you, then treat yourself to just a simple massage. Doing this once or twice a month can help your sore muscles heal and prevent tear or injury in the future. Choose the style of massage you like, whether it be deep tissue or just a light touch, it will make you feel like a whole new person.
Taking care of yourself physically is incredibly important to living a long life. While we focus on ways to achieve this via exercise, we need to always remember to nurture our bodies after the workout is over.
