Western culture has a tendency to value yang (active, visible, etc) over yin (quiet, hidden, 'inactive', etc) and I'm part of that culture so I can be a bit that way too. But you need the yin stuff. Muscle growth happens on the rest days right - the yin days? I just joined a gym and I'm pretty fired up about it, but it is EXTREMELY typical of me to get way too fired up and then burn out within a fortnight. So to avoid that, I need to balance that yang stuff with yin habits - getting enough sleep, stretching, rest days.
