"There is no performance without recovery"
This is part 2 of a three part series recorded across our podcasts with a focus on recovery.
In part 1 we explore "micro"-recovery and opportunities for brief and short term recovery and reset 'in the moment' on shift. In this episode we look at what Dan has aptly termed "meso-recovery" discussing how we might approach recovery pre, post and between shifts to allow us to maintain and sustain our performance and our wellbeing. We discuss what this has looked like for us in the past, where we are at present and what it might look like at its best. I'm conscious I am speaking to relative experts in this space who have put significant time, energy, attention and intention into the "work" of recovery. I think despite this however all of us would concede this is still very much a work in progress.
Both Andrea and Dan have valuable perspective to share from their personal journeys to date and whilst we acknowledge that this is going to look slightly different for individuals, there are some great pearls, tools and strategies to take to your next run of days ON and OFF.
In the final part of the series we look at longer term cycles of "macro"-recovery in our approach to periodisation of work, play, rest and optimising performance, wellbeing and longevity of practice.
This recording and connecting with two incredible clinicians and now friends on their side of the planet, was a life highlight for me and this topic is Mind Full Medic Podcast core content. Enjoy!
