We always want to suggest active rest, rather than just lying on the couch all day complaining about how sore you are.
Remember that active rest doesn't have to be a walk in the park. Simple tasks—gardening, housekeeping, honey-dos, bike rides, or a day at the lake—can still burn a few calories and give you some stress relief.
Today is a good day for social activities. Join a social organization, a book club, or a city league sport. Rest days are also ideal for meal prep, so get in the kitchen and get ready for the week ahead.
