Episode Three of Sobering Up Summit Malibu is live!

In this episode, Dr Kim Chronister talks about addiction recovery and the importance of exercise. She talks about how very important exercise is as a part of life. Especially for those that are recovering from alcoholism and drug addiction.

Exercise is way more than a way to be healthy. Exercising releases endorphins and hormones that make the body actually feel better. Regular exercise can decrease anxiety, depression, and even high blood pressure. Getting fit does a lot more than make you look good, it also helps you to feel really good. And not just when working out…that feel good mood continues after, and uplifts you throughout the rest of your day. Exercising brings good to the mind and the body.

When beginning recovery exercise is an excellent new habit to begin forming. It is a healthy way to spend the extra hours that are found in a sober day. It is also something that can really make you feel good, and can often make you feel how you have always wanted to feel. It provides the “good” feeling that drinking and drugging promise but fail to deliver. It also really does do the body good and can help speed up the time it takes to be back to feeling like yourself after a relapse, or for the first time in a long time if newly sober.

Exercise is a vital component to a healthy lifestyle. Add in a healthy diet, and positive activities that focus on self-improvement, community, and service. This is a great way to really begin to set the foundation for a future that is worth living. And one that makes you feel pretty spectacular too.
