Recovery from a mindset perspective requires that we become more mindful about recovery. We need to be more aware of and connected to our bodies to know when to push harder or when to back off and recover. It’s critical to listen to and recognize our body’s signals and cues – and then be disciplined about honoring what is going on inside of us.
