Sometimes feeling “tired” (despite getting enough rest, eating properly, removing caffeine, etc) is your body’s way of saying you actually need MORE movement, MORE healthy exercise. ** THIS DOES NOT MEAN OVEREXERCISE ** > if you’re tired from over exercising/not eating enough you know who you are- I don’t have to say it, because that […]
