SIGNS THAT SHOWS YOU SHOULD SKIP WORKOUT
1. You are extremely stressed
We’ve all been through those days when there’s so much to juggle, and it leaves you feeling extremely stressed and tired! There’s no denying that exercise relieves stress, but not always. It is at this point that you must listen to your body.
When you work out, your heart rate goes up, and when you’re already stressed, that’s something you would want to avoid. Plus when you are dealing with paucity of time, squeezing a gym sesh can turn out to be really too much for you!
2. You are sleep deprived
If diet and exercise are importanat for your body so is sleep. And if you don’t get proper winks at night, then you are bound to feel exhausted. That’s why it is more important to hit the sack than the gym! That’s because if you are sleep-deprived, your body will not perform as highly as it should, and that also makes you more prone to injury. Instead, sleep well and rest your body, and return to the gym the next day!
3. You’re feeling sick
If you’re feeling feverish or not upto the mark, then it’s best to skip exercise. Experts suggest that if you feel there’s pain coming from above the neck, you can still work out. But if the pain is below the neck, skipping the gym is a good idea. And if you have fever, then exercising shouldn’t even cross your mind. Because even if you work hard in the gym, you won’t benefit at all—instead, your body will be more dehydrated!
