October 26, 2021

It is proven that you will have a lot of benefits from routine workout; a healthy and stronger body, good mood, stronger immune system, better mental health, and even a better body shape. But, there are times when you feel some signs that actually try to tell you that you should stop working for a while and it is better for you to take a rest first, or even make an appointment with your doctor if you feel something isn’t right in your body. Here are the top 3 signs!

1. You feel some symptoms of illness

Fever, flu, shortness of breath, migraine, chest pain, and any other pain that you feel can indicate that your body is not well enough to exercise. The causes of it are very varied, it may be bacterial, virus, or chronic physical problem. Whatever the cause is you should immediately rest and go to the doctor if it’s needed. Heavy exercise may only lead your body to a worse condition.

2. Trauma

Especially if the trauma is on your head or spine, such as accidentally being hit or beaten. Your head and spine are the central nervous system. If there is a problem with this part and you do not handle it seriously, it will result in even more severe damage and can be very dangerous for you.

3. Pain

If you feel pain usually in the joints that disturb your activities, even worse blocking your body's movement, you should not workout for a while. Chances are the problem lies in your joints.

Don’t forget to listen to your body and the signals it gives so that you can stay healthy and safe in exercising. Do not ignore the smallest changes that happen in your body in order to maintain your stamina and body performance.
