Here’s how stress can impact physical fitness
Reduces focus: Stress burdens the stream of thoughts, making your mind wander to the persistent issues you are facing in life, from personal, health, to financial. This will affect your concentration levels when working out, making you lose focus.
Reduced focus may also lead to the risk of you getting injured, due to not paying attention to the proper weightlifting techniques, and/or using faulty equipment. Your overall performance and fitness milestones may also take a hit because of this factor.
Hampers recovery time and muscle growth: The muscles break or tear when you lift weights or do intense cardio workouts, and resting is the primary way to heal the muscles and supplement their growth.
As stress could impact the quality and duration of sleep, your muscle growth may suffer as a result of a lack of adequate rest. This may also impact the motivation levels, as delayed recovery could break the momentum and the will to consistently workout.
So, ladies, stress management is crucial for maintaining physical fitness and should be made a priority to boost overall health
