Tips to Help You Cope in Becoming Smoke-Free
The most important one is not to neglect yourself, as this is the time to take extra care to meet all your needs.
These requirements include:
· Eat a healthy diet, as your body needs the right fuel to flush out all the toxins caused by smoking.
· Drink much water, as it is an essential quitting aid. Further, it helps detox the body quickly and contributes as a craving buster.
· Take your daily dose of multivitamins to give your immune system the boost it needs during the withdrawal.
· Cut out your caffeine with QuitWTR Herbal Tea instead of the caffeinated drinks can leave you feeling anxious and jittery. Furthermore, we recommend you not to drink coffee and tea high in caffeine ifyou are having trouble sleeping at night.
· Take a long shower or bath to de-stress by lighting some candles and submerge yourself into bath salts.
· Go for a massage, or if you have a loved one with willing hands, get them to massage the muscles relieving tension throughout the body.
· Take a short walk or jog every day, even 15-minutes of slow walking helps relieve stress and helps with the withdrawal from nicotine. With exercise, it helps release the feel-good (endorphins)hormones. Therefore, if you have the urge to smoke, take a walk to ease the craving.
· Make sure to get enough sleep in the early days of not smoking to keep the mind rested and stress-free.
· Learn to visualize your mind and create a comfortable spot to relax and slow down, taking up yoga is a great way to achieve this. Alternatively, you can sit or lay comfortably while breathing indeeply through the nose and exhaling through the mouth five times.
· Moreover, most importantly focus on today andstop worrying about tomorrow. Resolve the fact that you are not lighting a smoke today and stop worrying that you are not smoking in the future. Take baby steps and do not let tomorrow intimidate you.
