Things to know
Stress is a normal physiological reaction to physical or mental load. Not all stress is bad, and can be caused by a variety of positive and negative factors such as working, training, commuting, anxiety, excitement. However, prolonged high intensity stress can be harmful. The goal is to moderate the amount and intensity of stress over time.
Recovery is the calming of the body, and helps to balance stress. The majority of recovery occur during sleep but day-time recovery is also beneficial and can occur in a variety of situations such as relaxation or talking to friends. Stress and recovery can vary greatly depending on external factors, coping mechanisms, and physiology.
Heart rate variability (HRV) is the time variation between heartbeat intervals. Many studies have shown a correlation between HRV and physiological intensity as it relates to stress and recovery, as well as an indication of heart conditions. In general, a higher HRV results in increased recovery levels, whereas a low HRV increases stress.
By understanding how daily activities impact stress and recovery levels, I’m able to make simple adjustments to improve my overall well-being.
In all seriousness, the Vital Scout has been helping me be more aware of when I get too stressed (especially at work) so that I can catch it before it gets too bad. Still working on my stress management, but this definitely helps to keep me in check. Would totally recommend!
