Recovery Maintenance 101

If you want to keep your recovery running strong, you need to take the same approach a mechanic would take when tuning up a car.

If you don't fix the small leaks, rattles, and squeaks when they pop up, you're going to find yourself broken down somewhere down the road.  Remember that a tiny drip becomes a drop.  A drop becomes a tiny puddle, and before you know it you'll be spewing oil everywhere wondering what happened.

Catch the small problems in your recovery when they're small.  Don't put things off. 

Remember: Diagnose, Repair, Maintain.

All this is pretty simple.

Within this article, you will find a 10 point recovery checklist which will be your guide to keep your recovery running strong and out of the repair shop.
