Longtime readers of this blog will remember the time when I found myself in a car accident and didn’t know what I was supposed to do. How was I going to recover from the injuries? How was I supposed to navigate the legal process? As I went through the whole ordeal, there were a few things that were unclear to me. It was through research and consulting with the right legal expert that helped me discover what worked. Today’s article will revisit that traumatic time in my life and offer advice for those who currently find yourself in an auto accident or a similar situation.

How can yoga help you recover your mind and body?

Many of us are told that when we have injured ourselves, it is best not to take part in any sort of physical activity. I would tend to agree, but as a yoga instructor, I found that continuing with a light yoga practice actually helped my recovery! 

How is this possible? When you have been injured, your movement becomes limited. Gentle yoga practice can help your muscles recover without straining your body beyond its limits. This is what helped me get stronger and heal from my injuries. I took my time to make sure that my body was comfortable with the yoga movements. After my injuries fully healed, I continued my yoga practice as usual and found that I was getting better day by day.

This is not medical advice—consult with a doctor before engaging in any form of physical activity, especially following an accident. I kept my doctor in the loop and was able to continue with yoga as a way to recover myself mentally, emotionally, and physically.

How can an auto accident attorney help you throughout the legal process?

Due to my injuries, I was unable to work for weeks; I had to cancel my classes at my yoga studio because I was unable to instruct during that time. In addition to the physical discomfort, I was not in a balanced mental or emotional state to teach my students.

I knew that there was no way I could have handled my personal injury case on my own. I knew I needed legal expertise and assistance, so I hired an auto accident attorney in Mira Mesa, San Diego. As it turns out, my lawyer had prior experience in defending insurance companies in the personal injury department, which meant that he knew how insurance companies operate.
