Exercise Regularly

Healthy amounts of exercise can help your brain to release hormones called endorphins. Endorphins will help to positively restore the chemical balance in the brain, making you feel good. Exercise during withdrawal will also help you reduce stress and tension and even help you sleep better. Taking part in physical activity will help improve your physical health which in turn can help improve your mental health.

Give Your Body The Best Nutrition

The right nutrition can play a huge role in the healing of the body. By ensuring you eat meals rich in proteins, vitamins and other essential nutrients during addiction detox, you’re providing it with the fuel it needs to ensure healthy brain and organ function – all vital when your body is going through withdrawal.

Stay Hydrated

Our bodies are made up of at least 70% water, therefore staying hydrated is just as important as eating the right foods. Often, thirst or hunger can be mistaken for cravings. Ensuring your body is well hydrated and fully nourished will therefore minimise the occurrence of this.

Stick To A Schedule

Schedules are incredibly important, especially when it comes to diet and even more importantly, sleep. Ensuring your tummy is full and you’re well-rested with a structured sleep pattern is invaluable. You’ll be able to think clearly, as well as control mood swings and more importantly cravings far better.
