Yoga asanas help stretch different parts of the body and relax the muscles.
Pranayamas are a good way your body engages in a moment of stillness and calms down.
Your post-workout routine is just as important as your workout routine. Exercise leaves the body completely tired out - with increased heart rate, rapid breathing, and high blood pressure pushing it to the edge. Since our body reacts to exercise the same way it does to stress, it is important that you establish a post workout routine to give your body what it needs to calm down.
Mentioned below are a few tips that Ayurveda recommends to help calm the body post a workout.
Working out is an intense activity for your body, especially when adrenaline rushes through your veins. Plan your workout such that you end gradually. This will give your body enough time to manage the drop in energy.
Muscles get stressed during workouts. Usually, the tension in the muscles keeps building and it is essential that you release it. Certain asanas help stretch different parts of the body and relax the muscles.
Pranayamas are breathing techniques that help master control over the breath. This way, your body engages in a moment of stillness and calms down considerably. Pranayama helps you get rid of negative thoughts and focus on the better part of the day.
Workout causes stress to the body. One of the best ways to reduce this stress is by massaging the muscles. Warm half a cup of sesame oil and massage the sore muscles in circular motion. This will not only encourage proper circulation but also help the muscle recover from any damage caused during the workout.
Your body needs proteins like mung daal. Ghee, almonds and dates should also be consumed in moderate amounts. You can even use spices like adrak, dalchini, elaichi and methi while preparing meals.
