Tips For Creating A Fresh Start For Yourself During Spring Time
Overcome Your Past
Just like the dark days of winter, the dark days of your past can be overcome by the light of spring. The warm weather, sunshine, and new life can inspire big changes in your life. Many people think of spring-cleaning as an activity for their home, but spring-cleaning your life can help in a variety of ways. It is time to put aside old habits and the friends that contribute to them and begin building a brighter future.
Take Up A New Hobby
It’s starting to get warmer and sunnier out. Take up a new sober hobby to enjoy the outdoors such as hiking, biking, basketball at a park, taking your dog on longer walks to new areas or to a dog park, etc. Meet new, sober friends by joining a local sober sports organization, or craft class, host a board game or movie night, host a sober BBQ or catch a play with some sober friends.
Continue Ongoing Healing
After addiction treatment, ongoing individual and group counseling as well as relapse prevention tools are vital to continue with your healing and recovery and for learning new coping mechanisms to help you deal with any stressors and cravings in your sober lifestyle.
Try a 12-step program or other sobriety group. You want to make sure you are continuing to both learn and grow and not get complacent in your sobriety. Both stress and boredom are huge reasons many people relapse. Don’t let these problems get the upper hand! With support and commitment, you can grow stronger each day and enjoy a life of healing and peace!
Change YOUR Life!
