Exercise and Serotonin
Did you know that exercising releases serotonin? Serotonin acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain and is responsible for the control of moods, such as depression and happiness. Exercise can be utilized as a therapeutic tool in order to work through mental health issues and release negative emotions. With that being said, exercising is a great way for your brain’s serotonin levels to increase, resulting in improvement in overall mental health and a successful rehabilitation!
Exercising During Addiction Treatment
Group therapy sessions during addiction treatment uncover many uncomfortable and negative emotions that an individual may not have experienced before. By exercising throughout your treatment, you are allowing your body to release serotonin – which is a healthy way to relieve stress and put those feelings behind – while adding a healthy and positive routine to your new lifestyle. In addition, exercising is a great way to work up a sweat, which will help to release toxins from your body.
By starting your recovery off with healthy exercise habits to fill your time and improve your self-esteem, a successful recovery is more likely. Adding new and healthy habits to your lifestyle, such as exercising, is a great way to feel better about yourself and continue on the right path to sobriety. In addition to our exercise programs and fitness center, our team of doctors will also assist you with nutritional planning so that you can reach long term success with a healthy lifestyle!
