    Qigong is a Chinese practice that helps many people relax and calm their active minds... I'm sure we can all relate to having thoughts run crazy in the mind, especially in recovery.

    Have you ever tried qigong? There are many free videos on YouTube where you can learn some of the moves. The moves are gently... and you focus your breath. It's a lot like meditation and yoga, but you're gently moving and stretching.

    Studies have been done and it was found that qigong helped those going through withdrawal from drugs experience less withdrawal symptoms....and more peace.

    Worth a shot, right? Even 10 minutes a day can help!
