Do you know what it means to have a balanced life? What about the impact that a balanced life in addiction recovery can have? Do you understand why it’s important to find total balance? Many people don’t but research has found that having a balanced life can have a tremendous benefit to your overall recovery journey.
What is Balance?
We want to make sure that we’re living as physically healthy as we can, of course. This is for a few reasons, though. For starters, when you hurt or don’t feel good in your recovery, it makes it much easier to tell yourself that the only thing that will make you feel better is to use or drink. Feeling good and living healthfully can help keep you strong on your journey and prevent relapse.
We also want to make sure that mentally, we are balanced and comfortable. One of the things that many people truly struggle with is the desire to “get out of” their heads. There is nothing worse than struggling with thoughts and feelings that you cannot come to terms with. This is why we work with different types of therapy to help us during addiction treatment. We all need to learn how to shut down the thoughts that make us lose sleep.
When it comes to spirituality, there is no other aspect of us that is more overlooked. It’s also very important to your recovery. How do you feel about your place in the world? Are you okay with you? Do you feel like you’re just as important a part of the world as the next guy? This is simplifying things, but it’s a way of explaining spirituality in a way that is easier to understand. The point is, when you have a spiritually strong self, you’re going to “be okay,” with you and where you are.
