Take Comfort in the Discomfort

Take a minute and think back to the last time you tried something for the FIRST time. For many of us, it’s been a while! Do you remember the feelings of being unfamiliar with your environment? Your peers? Your gear? Over time, the gained comfort in our respective sports can lead to blinders of these uncomfortable feelings that we have since overcome.

During the month of January, the Nuun crew embarked upon a fitness challenge that put each of us back in equal court: ​The Nuubie Challenge. We challenged each other to return to this place of discomfort and try something completely new. Some have discovered a new-found passion for new sport, and others discovered places that they would never return! All of these experiences were equally valuable and a reminder that we all start somewhere. The challenge was equal parts physical and mental and throughout the month, there were many lessons learned about how to find comfort in the discomfort.

5 Tips to Make the Most of Your Recovery

You’ve heard it before and you’re about to hear it again:

Make time for rest days! Allow your body to recover! Come back stronger on the other side!

All joking aside, there are many elements of rest and recovery that make a massive difference in your overall performance. Throughout training, your body undergoes a significant amount of stress, breaking down your tissue. Rest days allows for proper recovery which in turn helps to prevent long term injury.

The good news is that this stress and tissue damage is minimal, and can be rebuilt and recovered through solid rest day plans. This stress and rebuild cycle is what ultimately creates long term strength and stamina!

Consider these 5 rest-day pro tips for your upcoming recovery days. Make the most of your recovery and be sure to share your rest success with the world. #restdaybrags

​5 Reasons We’re Opting Outside This Black Friday

At Nuun, we believe that moving more + proper hydration are catalysts to help you thrive through life. Although this may sound obvious, our actions in society are counter to these fundamentals and as a result, making us unhealthier.

Think about the headwinds we face everyday when it comes to movement alone. We live in a box (our home). We likely drive in a box (automobile) to work and sit in a box (office), only to stare at a box (computer and cell). Then we repeat the drive home back to our box and sit and stare at a box (TV/computer). Most people live a sedentary lifestyle, indoors, for 20+ hours every single day.

This Black Friday, Nuun is encouraging our team to counter society’s sedentary lifestyle and pause on our shopping indulgence by opting outside. Our friends at REI started this movement a couple of years ago by closing their doors on one of the biggest shopping days of the year. The intent was to give up on shopping for the day and just get outside. Think of it as healing for our body and our planet. Let’s be real, we all know that it is pretty difficult to get outside without moving.

Here are 5 reasons to opt outside this Thanksgiving weekend:
