Maybe you spent a little too much time at the gym yesterday night, ran too many miles or were stuck in a meeting for hours. Today when you get out of bed you will quickly find out that your muscles are sore and stiffened. While this is a natural outcome from strenuous activity or tension, it can be annoying and quite painful so it’s essential to find quick, effective ways to reduce the pain and speed up the recovery process. You can relieve this pain yourself naturally and effectively as quickly as one day!

1. Hydrate

Sore muscles need a lot of water to rejuvenate and recover from the strenuous exercise. Always try to drink water during and after any physical activity that might cause sore muscles. Avoid caffeinated drinks and alcohol – even if iced latte sounds very appealing after a long run in the sun, both alcohol and coffee have a dehydrating effect that will lead to loss of fluids.
