Lifestyle Changes: Taking Control

Some survivors of PTST find a change in lifestyle very effective or even necessary to their treatment of their illness. This lifestyle change would be most effective if thought through very carefully by the patient, family and friends along with their therapist or Doctor. The more involved the support becomes for the patient the more effective the treatment will be.

Although lifestyle changes may not be needed for every PTSD patient, for the ones that it is needed for it can be invaluable. The suvivor may even rebute against any changes and due to the often negativity they receive from the rest, they may think that if they accept these changes it would be a sign of weakness on their behalf. So getting them involved may not be that easy.Here we have listed a few of the possible lifestyle changes that could help a patient.

Some Of These Changes May Include:

  • Finding Proper Treatment
  • Joining a Qualified Support Group
  • Join volunteer groups to help others
  • Talking To Other Victims of PTSD
  • Re-evaluate Relationships with family and Friends
  • Move to a new neighborhood
  • Stop drinking and/or drug use
  • Join a sports league or some scheduled activity
  • Get started in an excecise program
