Physical & mental stress can cause increased levels of cortisol & inflammation producing chemicals called cytokines.
They can disturb sleep, reduce mood, increase anxiety & cause fatigue.
Chronic inflammation is also linked to gut problems & a higher risk of cancer.
In an 8 week study, mindfulness meditation reduced the inflammation response caused by stress (Rosenkranz, 2013).
Think about how regular meditation & mindfulness practice can help you to recover more effectively & improve your well-being by:
1. Improving your sleep
3. Enhancing your ability to focus
3. Helping you to feel more mentally at ease & relaxed outside of training
