We all deal with stress. Stress is something that just comes with being alive and living in the society we live in. Unfortunately for some, it’s more difficult to deal with than others. For a patient in recovery, it can be especially hard. Keeping up with your sobriety can be stressful itself. In the past, a patient might have turned to drugs and alcohol to deal with the stress of daily life. It can be easy to slip back into bad habits when stressed out.

Dealing with the stress of recovery, bills, family, and friends can be a patient’s worst nightmare at times. The constant over thinking about things we cannot control can also cause massive amounts of stress on patients. It’s important in these stressful times to stay strong and vigilant against the temptation to use drugs and alcohol. Luckily there is hope. There are a few different methods a patient can use to deal with stress and help keep themselves on the right path when it comes to their sobriety. We all have stress but how we deal with it makes all the difference in the world.

lower hormones such as cortisol which are known to cause stress in your body.

Getting a good workout can increase confidence and has shown to improve overall mental wellbeing. We also sleep much better when we exercise regularly which can attribute to less stress overall. Sleep is extremely important for everyone and getting a good night’s rest is crucial for minting mental wellbeing and overall positive health in your body. Finding a routine that you can enjoy is the most important part of this. Some patients enjoy weightlifting while others might enjoy yoga or run. Finding the activity that is right for you will help you get into a habit of doing it regularly.

 

Caffeine intake

 

Most patients do not want to hear this but caffeine is, unfortunately, a drug. It is a stimulant and can cause stress on the body which also can cause stress in your mind. It is found in coffee, chocolate, tea, and our favorite energy drinks. It can give you a burst of energy to help with getting through a busy day but in high doses can definitely increase your stress and anxiety levels.

Consumed in moderation caffeine can be a positive part of your life but overindulgence has been proven to be an added stress inducer to one’s life. During a patient’s journey through recovery, it can act as a placeholder for the drugs and alcohol that you once turned to.  If you are a heavy user of caffeine consider cutting back and watch how your stress levels reduce.

Meditation

 

Meditation is the practice of being still and in the present moment. Clearing your mind of all the 60,000 thoughts we have throughout the day has shown to be a wonderful way to combat negative thinking and helps you realign with the world around you. A negative thought The Retreat of Broward, FL Meditationprocess can often lead to a negative mindset which can ultimately cause stress and anxiety in a patient.

Focusing on the present moment the “here and now” if you will, can help calm your mind and release thoughts that can lead to stress from your body. Meditation can also help with self-esteem and overall mental wellbeing within a person. Anchoring yourself to the present moment and blocking out all outside influences and stressors is something that should be a practice for everyone.  Increased self-esteem can also help with depression which lots of patients deal with while in recovery. Be present, be in the moment, and let no outside influences affect your emotions or wellbeing.

 

Improve overall wellbeing.

Reovery is a difficult road. What can make it more difficult is adding stress to the equation. These tips are not just for patients in recovery but for all people. Stress is something that sometimes cannot be avoided. Taking active steps in the role of relieving this stress can be crucial for a patient in recovery. Be mindful of your thoughts and anytime you feel like you are spread too thin remember these tactics to improve your overall mental help and wellbeing. Breathe deep within your soul and remind yourself every day that you can do this. You can stay sober, you can feel better, and you can do amazing things.
