You know that exercise is good for you – good for the body, good for the soul – but did you know that it is good for your recovery as well? When you are in better shape, your body can fend off illness more easily, you feel more confident, and you have higher energy levels and therefore more energy to handle whatever stressors come your way without resorting to drug or alcohol use. Similarly, when you are working out regularly, you tend to metabolize food more efficiently, fall asleep more easily, and sleep more soundly. If you work out with friends in recovery, you are doing double duty and building your support network in recovery at the same time.
The good news is that you don’t have to start an intensive daily workout regimen that has you running or lifting weights for hours a day to gain the benefits of a little cardiovascular and/or weight-bearing workout. There are literally hundreds of things you can do to get moving and boost your recovery at the same time – for free or at very low cost.
