No matter how committed we are in the gym – time off is going to happen. Regardless of the reason (sickness, schedule conflicts, travel, etc.) its important to keep the big picture in mind. A few weeks off throughout an entire year will not drastically slow down our progress.
Time off gives our body and our mind a chance to rest. We shouldn’t feel guilty about missing a few workouts. We should use that time to relax and recharge. A sustainable approach requires balance – the gym will be there when we’re ready.
