Are you ready to live a healthy life in recovery?
One thing that has become apparent in this last year of the global pandemic is the need to take care of ourselves physically and emotionally. We’ve been thinking about how that applies to those of us in the world of sobriety and recovery. In fact, anyone who is sober knows that self care and health is of critical importance for maintaining sobriety.
That’s why we decided to create and release a brand new course; Living a Healthy Lifestyle in Recovery.
When you are on a sober journey for life there are many things to consider. And, while not being addicted is certainly one component of sobriety it is not the only one. What we mean by this is that in order to successfully maintain sobriety over your lifetime you need to have things in order in your life. This includes eating healthy, maintaining decent activity levels daily and adopting some kind of mental health / spiritual health routines.
In Living a Healthy Lifestyle in Recovery we dive deep into these three topic areas. We’ll teach you exactly what you need to do in order to build habits and routines that will support you over the long term. The course is a short course coming in just under an hour long but covers three main areas:
In our physical health section we teach the core principles surrounding nutrition, fitness and sleep. These principles serve as the foundation for feeling great every single day from a physical perspective. You want to wake up each day with the energy and gusto to attack the day and if even one of these elements comes up short you won’t be able to operate in the peak zone required for a life of recovery.
Once you’ve sorted out your physical approach to health you can then focus on being strong mentally (of course you can choose to start here if you feel inclined!). It actually doesn’t matter what order you focus on and you should likely be working on all areas of your life at one time. However, our psychological health section helps you establish good practices in all areas that affect mental health.
Our final section deals with the social aspects of life. Every day we are faced with relationships that span work, friends and family. This means that you need to be aware of how to deal with these relationships in the right way to protect your sobriety and sober journey. If you aren’t prepared to deal with a hostile coworker, for instance, you might be inclined to pick up a bottle of wine when you get home as a coping mechanism.
This short course is a great reminder for why you need to be focused on the whole self during recovery. Think of it as a quick shot in the arm for recovery.
After finishing the course you will understand:
- Why you need to incorporate the Sobriety Success Method into your life to live a healthy lifestyle in recovery;
- The importance of nutrition while in recovery and what it takes to make a healthy nutrition plan;
