Winning practices for your mind, body, and soul.
Among the best habits that you can get into as a runner is taking good care of your physical, emotional, social, spiritual, personal, and financial needs. Doing so improves the quality of your life significantly and helps solidify your sense of purpose. When you neglect one of the critical areas of your life, it creates a domino effect that impacts other things that create your sense of wellness. If there is any gift you give yourself this year, self-care is definitely your best choice!
Self-care practices that could benefit you as a racer include:
You know your needs better than anyone else does. By continually trying to maintain balance in all areas of your life, you’re able to quickly recover from challenges and setbacks without them negatively taking a toll on you and your health. You know which areas of your life self-care is lacking and do what it takes to get back into the routine of caring for yourself.
It’s not enough to win the race you’re running in. It’s also important to be a champion in your day-to-day life, too. By focusing on taking good care of yourself, you carry the spirit of a winner with you wherever you go, especially while participating in turkey trots in Detroit, San Jose, or Buffalo this Thanksgiving. You’re paying close attention to what your mind, body, and soul need and finding new ways to treat yourself and others well.https://www.racethread.com/blog/health-nutrition/self-care-for-regular-races
