PTSD Recovery in Veterans
Regular exercise has been a key in veterans’ recovery. Apart from burning adrenaline, regular exercise releases endorphins, which improves mood. The nervous system also becomes unstuck and immobilizes the stress response. Rhythmic exercises relax veterans’ emotions since they focus on how the body feels.
PTSD can make veterans feel vulnerable and helpless. For positive emotions, war veterans need to control their nervous system. Mindful breathing, sensory input, and emotional reconnection can help control emotions when feeling anxious or agitated.
For veterans with PTSD, having conversations with people who won’t judge is essential. To avoid aggressive emotions, war veterans can volunteer or join a PTSD support group. Connecting with other people makes them feel less isolated.
PTSD takes a heavy toll on veterans, their relationships, and family life. Since they may not be willing to open up, The Emotion Code is a viable option. Christina Kim is a practitioner of The Emotion Code and can help release the trapped emotions from past events that are causing difficulties in life.
