Maybe you spent too much time at the gym last night, ran too many miles or were stuck in a meeting for hours. Whatever the cause, you may find that your muscles are sore and stiff when you get up the next morning. While this is a natural outcome of strenuous activity or tension, it can be annoying and quite painful. You'll want to find a quick, effective remedy right away to reduce the pain and speed up the recovery process. Fortunately, you can relieve this pain yourself naturally and effectively in as little as one day!


1. Hydrate

Sore muscles need a lot of water to rejuvenate and recover from strenuous exercise. Always try to drink plenty of water before, during and after any physical activity that might cause sore muscles. Avoid caffeinated drinks and alcohol when your muscles are sore. Even if an iced latte sounds especially appealing after a long run in the sun, both caffeine and alcohol have dehydrating effects. This will lead to loss of fluids, making it even more difficult for your muscles to recover.
