Detoxing from drugs or alcohol can be stressful enough, and the stresses only pile on when trying to recover in the middle of a vibrant city like Los Angeles. This article discusses some things to keep in mind that will help you detox and recover more comfortably in LA.

Prioritize Relaxation During Detox:

As you may experience various symptoms of detox, it is important to do everything you can to keep your mind and body relaxed to try to mitigate the stresses of these symptoms. After all, your body will be able to fight off your detox symptoms more easily if you are able to reduce general stress. This is especially important in a city like Los Angeles that comes with the added stresses of big-city life.

The following are some ways you can relax your mind and body during detox:

  • Meditate at least once per day with guided meditations you can find for free on YouTube. These meditations range from a few minutes to a half hour or more in length, so find whatever is comfortable for you.
  • Practice deep breathing throughout the day. This is as simple as taking a few deep breaths every hour.
  • Take a long hot shower once per day for a general feeling of relaxation.

Exercise Whenever Possible:

If your symptoms allow it, try to exercise frequently to reduce stress and get the endorphins pumping throughout your body. This will benefit both your physical and mental health, which will give your body a leg up in fighting various symptoms of detox. Try whatever form of exercise is comfortable for you, such as walking, running, biking, and more.

Detox From Home:

One of the best ways to avoid the stresses of Los Angeles is to complete your detox from home. Home detox is becoming more popular in LA and is just as safe and effective as detoxing at a treatment center. Moreover, nobody is “too sick” to detox from home, so we recommend looking into home detox, regardless of your reasoning for detox or the severity of your case.
