Addiction is that one mistake that more than a million people make but fortunately most of them embark on the journey of recovery too. The journey of addiction recovery is extensive but there are many tools to aid this journey, specialised care facilities like Charleston Rehab are providing exceptional services to drug addicts and their families in this hardship. Furthermore, the support of your family, your will power and determination and most importantly creating healthy and positive habits that keep you motivated are certain things that make the journey easier as you go on. Developing healthy habits during your addiction is essential to make sure that you live a healthy lifestyle post addiction. This is the time when we are most flexible to make reforms in ourselves.Here are top 5 healthy habits that you must establish during addiction recovery and how they benefit you in recovery! 1. Healthy Diet Taking a healthy and balanced diet is always the best gift to yourself. Not only does it maintain your figure physically but mentally it keeps you active and positive too. During addiction a huge amount of nutrients is lost from your body, to overcome this shortcoming you need the best diet! This loss of nutrients has to be replaced with a healthy diet which won’t only make your addiction recovery quick but if you stick to a healthy diet it’ll be extremely beneficial in the future. 2. Exercise People suffering from addiction are known to be lazy since addiction is a chronic brain disease. However, when the process of recovery has started exercise is the ideal manner to keep yourself on the track. According to expert research, exercise is associated with successful recovery and doing it daily will establish a habit that you will benefit from all your life. Even a brisk walk with a loved one is helpful! 3. Meditation Meditation is like giving yourself a break from the world. During that time of self-reflection, introspection and observation you rest your mind and learn to live in the moment. This will help you stay calm, reduce stress and anxiety and even depression which all greatly contribute to addiction. Not only will it prevent a relapse, but your body will start healing spiritually. 4. Sleep Cycle Many addicts have unruly sleeping schedules either due to their off time drinking habits or constant fear of getting caught. A 8 hour sleep cycle is often not a part of their lifestyle. Sleeping for 8 hours during the night is essential to ensure the proper functioning of your brain. It needs the rest to heal in the morning. If you have a hard time sticking to a routine try to have your partner keep a check on you, avoid using any screens before bedtime and make a bedtime ritual. 5. Social Interactions Many addicts are known to socially isolate themselves but once you have started recovery there is no reason for you to hide. Meeting people will make you realize what you had been missing out on and what its like to live a life free from the encumbrances of substance. Your family members and friends can also make sure that you are motivated! 6. Therapy Sessions Despite your addiction recovery program it is essential that you consult with a therapist out of the recovery center. This will help you open up about your journey to other people and embrace the change positively. The chances of relapse outside a sober house are still present so consulting a therapist will minimize the chances of this happening. Therapy will ensure your continuous well-being long after the conclusion of a formal recovery program. Addiction is often one of the hardest phases in someone’s life, even gathering the courage to face it and fight it is proof of extreme determination but there’s more than just determination that you need to overcome a chronic brain disease. These healthy habits can provide you support in this critical journey and ensure your success.  Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your name here Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

No experience, no problem in U.S. win

first_img U.S. coach Bruce Arena called the play of his youngsters “tremendous,” and singled out Mapp and Carroll for their impressive debuts. “Good win. Good experience for a lot of players,” Arena said. “We finished first in the group, which is nice. It wasn’t critical, but that’s always nice to cap off the year with a win and end up being the top team in the group. “Its a great accomplishment for our group.” Martino opened the scoring in the 51st minute for the Americans, who bounced back from a 3-0 loss to Costa Rica. Defender Chris Albright corralled a throw-in from Mapp and delivered pass to Martino, who beat Panama keeper Jaime Penedo from 25 feet. The victory, coupled with Mexico’s 2-1 loss to Trinidad and Tobago helped the Americans finish atop the final round of CONCACAF qualifying for the first time since the final phase went to six teams in 1994. Already qualified for the 2006 World Cup, the U.S. fielded a starting lineup that included six players with less than 10 games of international experience and two players, midfielders Justin Mapp and Brian Carroll, making their first appearances for the national team. Twellman, who leads MLS with 16 goals in 24 games for the hometown New England Revolution, gave the Americans a two-goal lead in the 57th minute with a breakaway goal. “It was good to see Taylor score a goal because I understand he’s supposed to be a goal scorer,” Arena said. “It was nice to see him score one in our jersey … hopefully there’s many more to come.” Also Wednesday, France, Serbia-Montenegro and Sweden clinched Europe’s three remaining automatic berths for next year’s World Cup in Germany. France defeated Cyprus, 4-0, to win Group 4, and Serbia-Montenegro defeated neighbor Bosnia-Herzegovina, 1-0, for first place in Group 7. Sweden won 3-1 at home over Iceland to secure second place in Group 8 behind Croatia. Sweden advanced as one of the best two second-place teams. Poland is the other best second-place team after losing at England 2-1. The Czech Republic, Turkey, Slovakia, Switzerland and Spain clinched playoff spots by finishing second in their groups. Norway already had earned a playoff berth. The Netherlands, Ukraine, Portugal and Italy are the other group winners. Germany advances automatically as the host nation. Under European rules, the eight group winners and the top two second-place teams advance automatically. The other six second-place teams go into a playoff next month for Europe’s three other spots. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
