Meditate and Practice Yoga to Decrease Stress and Fatigue

Did you know that psychological stress can be measured in the body by testing markers of inflammation. This is true. In fact, many of the same inflammatory markers that are acutely elevated after intense training are chronically elevated if you are under a lot of psychological stress.

Researchers believe that meditation is effective for stress reduction because the yogic breathing that accompanies it helps to clear stress hormones; yogic breathing also elevates the body's antioxidant system that is driven by glutathione. Further, meditation provides a planned time for developing active skills for reducing daily stress.

Develop a daily practice to reduce psychological stress. You will feel less fatigue, have less inflammation and recover faster from hard training.
