Living a life in addiction most likely became an unhealthy environment over time. Addiction can make people form some harmful habits that can deteriorate their well-being. Substance abuse shatters self-esteem and robs addicts of their self-respect. Implementing a few healthy habits can make all the difference in how you view yourself in recovery.
Taking the time to write out how you are feeling on a regular basis can shed some light into what you are really going through and help you to work it out. Putting a pen to paper creates a magic that is unexplainable, but can provide some insight that cannot be resolved by simply thinking about it. Another good subject to write about it gratitude. Writing out a gratitude list can change a negative attitude rather quickly to one of thankfulness. Healing can be achieved by handwriting in a journal.
Sometimes we can be in the busiest place in town and still feel lonely. As an addict your natural tendency may be to isolate, but connecting with others will help you build a support group around you so that you do not have to feel alone ever again. Reaching out to others will help them just as much as it will help you.
Working out produces endorphins that can make you feel a natural high and a sense of accomplishment that is undeniable. There are many exercise for you to try to see which one helps you feel the healthiest. Yoga, lifting weights, running, or surfing are great ways to get into shape.
Learning to take things as they are, will open you up to seeing so many blind spots that you have been missing and that you have been accustomed to. You are no longer fighting anything or anyone when you enforce acceptance in your daily life.
Addiction can take away your desire to nourish your body with things that are good for you. Eating healthy can be a great way to rejuvenate the body from abuse that you may have caused during your addiction. Food is energy for the body, so what you consume can make the difference in how your body will heal itself.
Healthy habits can be easy to form with some dedication and willingness. Making the effort to do some esteemable acts, can push you into loving yourself once again.
