Resolve to create a specific recovery goal in therapy. If you work with a therapist on a regular basis, create a recovery goal that you will work on with your therapist’s guidance. It can be short-term or long-term, but it should be a goal that will help you to grow in your recovery, and that you and your therapist can create a clear map of activity that will help you to reach it. If you are not currently seeing a therapist regularly, connect with one who has experience in substance abuse treatment and recovery.
Resolve to meditate. Meditation is an excellent tool in recovery. It can provide you with a place to withdraw and clear your head, allowing each breath and every thought to pass without judgment. Regular practice every day can help you to lower your stress level and actively practice the “let it go” philosophy that can be so helpful in living life without getting bogged down by stressors that may otherwise trigger a relapse.
