I had a strange childhood in the sense that we had almost no money, but my mom had an obsession with quality fabrics, especially bedding. Organic cotton, high thread-count sheets, natural fibers…beautiful fabrics that lasted years and years – and many washings. And thus the idea that “if you buy the best, you only cry once” was learned at the knee.
The impending offseason and holidays present an interesting challenge: Our bodies crave rest, yet end-of-year happenings require us to be “on.” The solution? Slow things down in your head. Taking a few minutes daily to meditate will help to “reset” your nervous system and facilitate some well-deserved healing, especially after your fall training.
