This Will Improve Your Health and Recovery!

Brian McCollom

Look, I get it. It’s easy to disregard your health.

Especially if you are a newcomer to recovery. We fell into certain habits in our addiction that weren’t exactly conducive towards being the epitome of health.

So now we find ourselves without drugs and alcohol, which was a hard enough habit to kick, and we are left with our beaten and battered body that is screaming for a good dose of health and wellness.

How much ya bench?

Now, I’m not suggesting that you need to train like an Olympian or eat like a fitness model preparing for a contest. What I'm suggesting, though, is that you take a look at your daily routine and ask yourself “How can I incorporate exercise into my day?”

After you figure out how you can improve your daily routine with exercise, the next thing you want to figure out is what type of exercise do you like doing? Are you a yogi or are you a power lifter?

Luckily, these days we are blessed with literally dozens of options when it comes to fitness the only choice you have to make is which one you like best! I suggest giving a few different options a try to find out which one tickles your fancy the most. Exercise doesn’t have to be done in a gym by running on a treadmill or lifting weights so expand your training horizon and check out some of the fun options in your area. Grab a bike and go for a ride in the park, join a hiking club, go get injured doing cross-fit, or take up competitive sword fighting!

The point I am trying to make is that you need to get your body moving. Our body has a lot of making up to do in order to bring us back to a healthy state. Staying sedentary was a part of your old life!

Change your habits to positive ones like exercise and reap the rewards.

*Remember, exercise releases “happy chemicals” and the more they are released, in a natural way, the more our brain chemistry can regulate on it’s own limiting mood swings and/or anxiety.

Drive Past the Drive-Thru

Before you got clean and sober, life was all about what was fast and easy. Does the term “instant gratification” sound familiar? Well, for a lot of people the “fast and easy” lifestyle bled over into their diets.

Some good ruls of thumb to live by when deciding what type of food to avoid are:
  1. If the place you are about to eat at has a drive-thru and smells like French fries – AVOID
  2. If the food you are eating has an expiration date that is 5-10+ years after the present year –AVOID
  3. If the food has an enormous dose of sodium or sugar – AVOID
  4. Hawaiian Punch and Twinkies for Breakfast – Sounds good but AVOIDcourtesy of genius.com

Of course, there are some exceptions to the aforementioned but those are some good general rules to follow.

Another tip may be to try to avoid eating out every meal. Most meals at restaurants are packed with salt and the portions are way too big, even for the typical gluttonous American. Instead, try going grocery shopping once a week and pick up some healthier options for you to bring with you throughout the day to prevent you from getting hungry and needing to stop at a restaurant.

*Do you have a slow cooker? You can get a small slow cooker for less than $25.00 online or at any of the large supermarkets. Slow cookers are great for healthy and easy meal prep. Throw in some chicken breasts, brown rice, chicken stock, and whatever vegetables you’d like right before you go to bed and set the slow cooker to low. Let it cook all night and then when you wake up, you’ll have a delicious and nutritious meal that can be good for up to a week!

Overall, in the end, the point I am trying to make is that we need to break our old habits. Those old habits were a part of our old, unhealthy lives but we are re-born today. We are blessed enough to be in recovery from addiction and we don’t want to take that for granted. I never said this will be an easy task and chances are there will be some challenges along the way but the juice will, most certainly, be worth the squeeze.

Oh, and before I forget, there are supplements that are available to the recovering addict that can help to greatly improve one’s overall health and well-being. They are called LiQcovery by Liquid Recovery Nutrition and can be found at www.TheLiquidRecovery.com.

The ingredients in their AM or PM formula aren’t new, in fact they’ve been tried and tested for years and have been recommended to the recovering addict for years. Liquid Recovery Nutrition just found a way to safely combine all of the vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and amino acids into two easy-to-drink powdered supplement formulas.

The LiQcovery: AM formula was designed to help improve energy production, mental clarity, focus, cognition, and even promotes relief from mild cravings. The LiQcovery: PM formula helps to support a healthy night’s sleep while helping to promote feelings of calm and relaxation. All the while, both formulas are meant to help replenish many of the deficiencies caused by addiction and encourage healthy neurotransmitter production leading you to generally feel happier, healthier, and more clear-headed.

They sell both of the formulas exclusively on their website, www.TheLiquidRecovery.com, and are currently working together with SubstanceForYou.com by offering a free “CLEAN LIFE.” or “100% sober” t-shirt with any order on top of 10% off if you use the coupon code: SFYLIQ

*Tip from the Owner of Liquid Recovery Nutrition, LLC:

“Try drinking the LiQcovery: AM formula prior to a workout! It’s got some great ingredients that really give you a nice energy boost and don’t leave you feeling jittery or over stimulated!”
