We’re excited to announce that RadioMD recently guest-featured The Dunes East Hampton’s very own Executive Director, Dr. Nicholas Kardaras. Dr. Kardaras shares his expertise on avoiding triggers and stress, specifically for those in recovery and for those who want to maintain their New Year’s resolutions.
Dr. Kardaras discusses the benefits of mindfulness and talks about the importance of our own well being by mentioning,
“It’s less about the triggers and more about what our internal state is.”
Key Points From The RadioMD Segment:
- Only 14% of individuals are able to keep their resolutions.
- You’re less vulnerable to triggers if you’re in a good emotional, psychological, and physical state.
- Instead of focusing solely on triggers, the key is to focus on keeping yourself in an optimal state-of-being to maintain a goal, healthy lifestyle, sobriety etc.
- In the addiction recovery world, it’s important to avoid being too H.A.L.T – too Hungry, too Angry, too Lonely, too Tired, to avoid being vulnerable to relapsing or breaking resolutions.
- Be cognizant of being too busy and over multi-tasking.
- It’s vital to take time each day to relax and avoid over-stimulation from phone and computer screens to decrease stress and avoid adrenal fatigue.
