Stress and Recovery Balance
The stress and recovery balance score helps you identify when the load is too heavy and recovery is too low.
Do you recover enough to balance out stress?
Regular measurements help you to see if stress and recovery, overloading and rest, are in balance in your every day life.
You will learn what factors cause you stress and what types of things promote recovery.
How much stress is normal?
Less than 65% of the day & night should consist of stress.
If the stress levels in your body become too high, it is important to identify the causes of excessive stress and then do something about them.
Acute, short-term overload is not dangerous, but if it becomes chronic, it can lead to more serious problems.
With your results, you can monitor that the amount of stress does not get too high for too long.
Your results will tell you if your amount of recovery per day is enough to support you.
How much recovery do you need?
To get a good stress and recovery balance, a minimum of 37% of a day & night needs to consist of recovery.
This should normally ensure an appropriate balance of stress and recovery as well as adequate physical resources.
How to ensure sufficient recovery?
A long enough, restorative sleep has the biggest effect on stress and recovery balance.
To ensure sufficient recovery, make sure you sleep the recommended 7-9 hours a night.
During the day, you can enhance your recovery by taking breaks and short moments of relaxation. Other effective ways to help the body recover include reading, listening to music, hobbies, relaxing in nature, or taking a nap.
