Walking

The following are just ideas that some members have found to be especially helpful for dealing with the problems encountered in withdrawal.

______________________________________________________________________

"Walking is a great form of exercise, and may be the most-tolerated type of physical activity during withdrawal. Even on my sickest days, I could still go at least around the block before having to return home. It always helps me to get outside and see that the world is bigger than just the four walls of my room, or the flat panel of my computer screen. A form of walking meditation has helped me as well -- walking very slowly, and just taking the time to be as present as possible to my physical surroundings: the view, the sounds, the smells, the feel of my feet on the pavement, the feel of my dog pulling on his leash. It has sometimes helped me to have walking partners, too, as talking and walking can help with natural breathing.

As with anything during benzo withdrawal, start slowly and build up." - Matt

"For me walking was more difficult.  I could hardly walk at all .. it was just too tiring. My poor little dog would need to go for a walk and I would only be able to walk ten yards or so, before I would just sit down on the ground and rest.  Getting back inside and sitting or lying down was always my primary goal.  If you can't even take short walks don't let it worry you, this will come back along with everything else, as your central nervous system and muscles recover." - Cookie
