Exercise has a powerful effect on physical, spiritual, and mental well-being. Often, when people who are experiencing any stress can go on a walk or run, they begin to feel better. Having your heart pump enough to release endorphins is a natural way to make your body feel great. Regular exercise has numerous effects on your health and self-esteem. Making positive changes in your life is a great way to stay in a physical and healthy mindset. Exercise is also essential in addiction recovery for the same reasons. Drug and alcohol abuse can severely diminish your physical and mental well-being. Being able to work on yourself through recovery exercises will add immense benefits to your life in recovery.
At Sunflower Wellness Retreat, we offer a recreation therapy program, which utilizes a complementary approach to our drug treatment programs. Engaging in experiential therapy can significantly enhance your process in recovery. Rebuilding areas of your life that may have been lost in addiction. If you have been struggling with addiction and wish to engage in more healthy lifestyle choices, call Sunflower Wellness Retreat today at 855.730.8825 to find out how you can begin!
Exercise and Addiction Recovery
As your body is readjusting from a life without drugs or alcohol, it may seem unbearable. Feelings of stress, poor sleep, anxious or depressed moods may follow you in recovery. This time is where exercise becomes helpful. Some benefits of exercise in recovery are:
- Improved mood
- Better sleep
- Disease prevention
- Reduces drug-seeking behavior
- Increased energy
- Better sleep
- Stress reduction
At Sunflower Wellness Retreat, we offer a mix of recreational activities so that you can find something that suits your personal needs. The goal of providing these activities is to help you have fun, relax, and enjoy being around your peers in recovery. Learning how to have fun without drugs and alcohol is an essential aspect of healing. Recreation therapy is a great way to boost your health and self-esteem, which may have been lost in addiction.
Mental Health and Recovery
Some drug rehab clinics only focus on the drug itself without acknowledging any co-occurring disorders. Without addressing the root cause of addiction, a person can frequent drug rehabs without getting the help they so desperately need. Offering a wide variety of programs that are tailored to a specific individual’s needs is important in preventing relapse.
