An active recovery day is a day where you focus on resting and healing your body from injuries. This can be done through soft Taichi exercises, internal strength training, swimming, saunas, showers, steam rooms, ice application, cold plunges, and jacuzzis. It is important to also drink plenty of lemon water to detox.
“Active recovery is low intensity exercise that a person performs after higher intensity exercise to improve their recovery and performance. Active recovery has many benefits, and there are several ways to perform it.” According to Medical News Today
Today, Sunday is injury recovery day two, it started with a short internal strength training session of about 1 hour. Then I walked to the Spa and started with a short swim, sauna, shower, steam room, shower, hotter sauna, ice application, cold shower, 11 minutes in the cold plunge pool, then another shower and a short time in the jacuzzi. Followed by long lemon water to detox.
Then my friend invited me for lunch, of course, I stuffed my face and now am sitting here writing this blog and developing a new bio for a project I am working on.
After all this activity I am certainly recovering, it still hurts a bit to laugh but I’m certainly feeling better. Now it doesn’t hurt to breathe so…and tomorrow is another day; I will let you know how I get on.
Why Active Recovery Days are Important
Active recovery days are important because they help you heal from injuries and detox your body. When you are injured, it is important to focus on rest and healing so that you can recover quickly and prevent further injury. Active recovery days can help speed up the healing process by promoting blood circulation and helping the body remove toxins.
How to Use Active Recovery Days
There are many different ways that you can use active recovery days to help heal injuries and detox your body. Some of the most popular methods include stretching, light walking, swimming, saunas, showers, steam rooms, ice application, cold plunges, and jacuzzis.

Active recovery days are a great way to heal from injuries and detox your body. Take the time to be kind to yourself and enjoy the process, enjoy whatever activities you are doing and don’t push yourself too hard. You run the risk of making the injury/healing process longer if you push yourself too hard.
Don’t panic, if rest enough and exercise, stretch sensibly you will come back stronger and heal.
