Resiliency

Resiliency

The ability to bounce back from the inevitable low spots of living without picking up a drink or a drug is achievable through specific habits of mind, body & spirit. Prana Recovery Centers Relapse Prevention Program participants practice activities and exercises that create sustainable skills including the science of happiness, yoga, exercise, and nutrition for staying clean and sober through the ups & downs of life.

Did you know that you have a set point for happiness that corresponds to approximately 50% of your happiness level?  More importantly, you have control over the remaining approximately 50% of your happiness through deliberate and intentional behaviors, thoughts, and actions. The science of happiness explores the ingredients of happiness and a meaningful life.  A lot of research has been done to investigate the effects of practicing gratitude, compassion, empathy, forgiveness, and happiness. The Greater Good Science Center at the University of California – Berkeley is an excellent source of information.resilience-inspirational-quote

The practice of yoga is thousands of years old.  It is a whole lot more than the postures we are familiar with through yoga studios and the media.  The system of yoga actually has eight limbs – or practices – that promote well-being and ultimately a spiritual way of life.  The eight limbs are:

  1. Yama :  Universal morality/moral restraints
  2. Niyama :  Personal observances & practices
  3. Asanas :  Body postures
  4. Pranayama :  Mindful breathing; breathing exercises
  5. Pratyahara :  Turning inward
  6. Dharana :  Concentration; cultivating inner perceptual awareness
  7. Dhyana :   Meditation
  8. Samadhi :  Union with Spirit

Yoga has been studied extensively as a mechanism for positive transformational growth spiritually, physically, mentally, & emotionally.  This 2014 study focuses on the impact of yoga practice on self-regulation using the brain’s networks. Having the ability to self-regulate, which means being able to control one’s emotions, thoughts, and behaviors to meet the demands of the situation to achieve goal-directed outcomes, is essential for achieving long-term sobriety.  In other words, when someone with a drug or alcohol dependency is in a difficult spot, he or she must be skilled in monitoring their own internal environment (mental and emotional states) in order to take the necessary steps to prevent relapse. Kripalu’s  Institute for Extraordinary Living offers a significant amount of research regarding the effectiveness of yoga practice on well being.

Other supporting practices for being resilient and maintaining sobriety are exercise & nutrition.  Being skillful and balanced in both areas becomes a primary support for happily living clean & sober and achieving long-term sobriety.

Prana Recovery Centers engages participants in their own exploration and healing to find out which supports resonant with each individual.  The holistic approach utilized emphasizes that there is no one “right” model for staying clean & sober. Each participant is given the opportunity and support to discover the practices that he or she would like to learn and experience in order to avoid relapse.
