Whoop & Recovery

health Dec 14, 2023

I've been using it as data for experimenting on making my sleep better. I've tried all manner of things (pills, sounds, meditation, etc) to try to boost it and I'm learning. While it's not quite where I want it to be, there was a recent thing I learned that's helped my recovery and I couldn't help but share.

Reading for 30 minutes (on Kindle primarily although I subbed my phone 2 days) before bed. HRV jumped up and my recovery was boosted significantly. It's a win-win because I've had to slow my reading pace recently given my commitments so now I can pick back up some lost reading time and know it's helping me with my recovery too!

Recovery isn't sleep, btw, and I get that. I'm still working on it but I wanted to share the recent learning. What have you found that helps you boost your recovery?
