Addiction to drugs not only affects your life negatively but also prevents you from living a stress free life. However, some of the addiction sufferers may realize the negative factor in their lives and want to give it up. But as they say, some things are easier said than done, bringing about a positive change requires not just a strong will but also faith and direction. But if you really want to give up addiction, giving up should never be an option.
But the important question here is how does one get rid of this habit? The road to recovery is full of bumps, pitfalls and setbacks but with the right treatment and support, you can reach your destination. But did you know that yoga can help you fulfil your quest of getting over drug addiction? Yes, practicing yoga will make you feel at peace with your body and mind allowing you to cope with uncomfortable feelings and sensations that may lead to relapse like anger, depression, sadness and anxiety.
According to a study conducted by Penn state, people who could not develop ways to cope with stress were more likely to relapse during recovery. The study found a link between stress and cravings to use a substance. Therefore, it becomes imperative to seek help of yoga to get in touch with your body again.
