This is always a busy time of the year as everyone prepares for Christmas. Sometimes the joy of giving is taken down by the overwhelming stress of making sure everything is perfect.
For me, it is more important to pay attention to the diet and make sure to keep exercise and body maintenance as a priority. Stress is relieved better by exercise than any other way in my opinion.
Recently, I have made my sauna functional and we have broken it in with some Fire and Ice sessions.
Laird Hamilton has incorporated both sauna and ice into his training and also into the XPT program. After talking with Taylor Somerville on my podcast (below) I tried it for my self for the first time.
I sat in the ice for 10 minutes then went to a hot sauna until I was uncomfortable. Then, 3 minutes in the ice with full submersion. Then, back to the sauna until I was uncomfortable and finished off with a dunk in the ice.
It was really nice and I slept like a baby last night. I look forward to bringing this in as a regular part of the training.
