Loosid Sober Tip of The Day

During a spiritual program of recovery, it is essential that we set aside time for self-care. 

Life can get overwhelming, and before we know it, we are taking care of everything and everyone… and we forget about taking care of ourselves.

Our minds can wander into thoughts about the past (regret) or worrying about the future (fear). 

This is why so many of us used substances to push away these feelings and ‘get out of the now.’

Today is the perfect opportunity to ‘get into the now’ and be proud of yourself wherever you are in your sober journey.

Just by reading this is an act of self-care.

Self-care is defined as:

The practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health.

When we set aside time for self-care, it helps us slow down and take a pause from the excitement and stress of the outside world and gives us the chance to connect with ourselves and live in the present moment, a place where regret and fear simply cannot exist. 

Practicing self-care gives us the chance to love ourselves and accept ourselves exactly as we are… perfectly imperfect.

Self-care can look different for everyone. 

If self-care is new to you, here are some things you can think about trying:

  • Meditation, or simply paying attention to your breath. 
  • Getting out into nature 
  • Shutting off your phone or television
  • Reading a good book, or perhaps some text on recovery that you have not looked at in a while.
  • Listening, singing and/or dancing to your favorite song
  • Exercising
  • Taking a warm bath
  • Lighting candles
  • Journaling
  • Cooking your favorite meal
  • Getting a massage
  • Listening to positive affirmations
  • Constructing a gratitude list
  • Making your favorite Mocktail. If you never have made a Mocktail, there is no time like the present!

Whatever you do, take time today to love yourself and pay special attention to your self-care and your recovery.

Why? Because you are worth it.
