Incorporating healthy habits into your everyday life can aid addiction recovery and benefit mental health. If mental health goes untreated or if symptoms are left unmanaged in addiction recovery, it can make you more susceptible to a relapse. These habits can easily become a part of your daily routine, act as healthy coping skills, and help improve your quality of life.
