3 YOGA POSES THAT CAN HELP YOU BOOST DRUG ADDICTION RECOVERY
Here are three yoga poses that can boost drug addiction recover
Yoga, when used in tandem with other drug addiction therapies and treatments, can help manage potential triggers and daily life stressors:
Step 1: Sit with your spine straight and close your eyes. Now, take a few deep breaths to relax.
Step 2: Rub the palms of your hands vigorously until they become warm and place them gently over your eyelids.
Step 3: Stay in this position until the heat from the hands has been completely absorbed by the eyes. Now, keep your eyes closed and lower your hands. You may repeat it three to five times.
2. Child’s pose
Step 1: Sit on your shin bones with your knees together, your big toes touching, and your heels splayed out to the side.
Step 2: Fold forward at your hips and walk your hands out in front of you, then sink your hips back down toward your feet.
Step 3: Gently place your forehead on the floor or turn your head to one side. Keep your arms extended or rest them along your body.
Step 4: Stay in this pose for up to 5 minutes while continuing to breathe deeply.
3. Savasana – Corpse pose
Step 1: Lay on your back with your feet spread and palms facing up. Notice your breathing.
Step 2: Experience how your body is gradually getting relaxed, from your face to your fingers and toes. Stay in this pose for as long as you want.
These three simple poses can be practised twice or thrice a week initially, and gradually be made a part of a daily routine to help boost drug addiction recovery and de-stress.
