As the enthusiastic, active humans we are, we often push ourselves to the limit without even realizing it. Whether you’re skating, snowboarding, hiking, or simply moving throughout your day—whatever the case may be—it’s natural to push through the pain and chase the stoke.
Maybe it’s because we set high goals and work tirelessly to achieve them, or maybe you’re just that type of person who turns it up to 11 and can’t hold back. Either way, it's important to remember that rest and recovery are just as important as the activities we love doing themselves.
Active recovery involves things like low-intensity exercise, stretching or any movement that promotes blood flow—which we all know is extremely important during recovery periods. We have to keep moving! A few popular methods of active recovery include things like cycling, yoga or common stretches. But even something as simple as a walk or a pushing around on your favorite cruiser board can work wonders during these times. When you do these exercises on rest days, you're promoting circulation and flushing out toxins that may have built up during higher-intensity moments and higher-intensity sessions. It’s a necessary step to getting back to doing what you love quickly and safely.
Rest days, on the other hand, involve taking a break from the things you love altogether. Admittedly, I know this can be super hard, but it’s so important to listen to your body. Rest days allow your muscles and joints to recover from the wear and tear that comes with hucking our bodies around all day, reducing our risk of injury in the process. They also give your mind a chance to rest and recharge, which is just as important for our overall well-being.
So how can Remind help?
First and foremost, Remind Insoles are a great recovery tool because they are designed to provide comfort, support, and impact reduction, which can aid in recovery after intense physical activity like skateboarding and snowboarding. They are made from high-quality materials and are designed to fit in a variety of shoes and boots alike, making them a versatile tool for professional athletes and enthusiasts of all levels and disciplines. Ask any of our ambassadors and they’ll tell you just how much of a difference they truly make.
One of the key benefits of Remind Insoles is their ability to absorb shock and reduce impact on the body. When we engage in physical activity, our bodies are subjected to constant pounding and jarring movements, which can cause wear and tear on our joints, muscles, and bones—the list goes on. Just imagine what one heavy session in the streets can do, especially if you’re out there jumping down gaps and stairs that really end up taking a toll on your entire body. Our insoles are made with specialized foam that helps to cushion these impacts, reducing the stress on our bodies and promoting better recovery every step (and clip) of the way.
Another benefit of our insoles worth mentioning is their ability to provide added support and stability to our feet, which can translate to better overall body alignment and reduced risk of injury. By keeping our feet properly supported and aligned, Remind Insoles can help to reduce strain on our ankles, knees, and hips, which are common areas of injury for many athletes.
Each of our insoles provide relief from foot pain and discomfort, which can be especially beneficial for anyone who spends long periods of time on their feet. Foot pain can be a frustrating and debilitating issue that can hinder performance and recovery. We’ve all been there. That’s why every Remind insole is designed to provide support and cushioning where you need it most, reducing foot fatigue and helping to alleviate pain.
Plain and simple, Remind Insoles are a valuable tool for anyone and everyone who wants to improve their active recovery and reduce their overall risk of injury. By providing cushioning, support, and relief from pain and discomfort, our insoles can help all walks of life recover faster and perform better, with far less pain than standard insoles. Whether you're a seasoned professional or just starting out, investing in a pair of Remind Insoles can be a simple and effective way to take the things you love to the next level.
