Embracing Positivity in Recovery
Have you ever wondered how many thoughts we have in a single day?
Many researchers state that we have 40,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day .That’s a huge amount of information that passes through the grey matter of our brain. It’s safe to say that most of our thoughts are the ones that cause grief and the negative thoughts that cause our minds to not stay focused. It’s no wonder why we feel like we have been hit by a truck.
Our negative thoughts drain our energy and break us down. We start to feel depressed, anger, frustrated and hopelessness, while trying to stay sober. When we speak of positive recovery, you might already have the tools you need. You might have been taught the life skills that you need to stay focused.
One way to increase our positive thoughts is through Mediation. Meditation is a powerful tool that allows us to focus on our breathing, which helps us focus on here and now. When practicing meditation regularly, any thoughts of the past and future can fall to the side, and you can place all your energy on what you can do right now to be happy. Let’s stop blaming others, and start managing our own life staying happy. I’m sure you already know this, but you alone are the only one responsible for your own happiness. This simple fact can be hard to realize because we want to blame others for our addiction.
Let’s stop blaming others and start managing our own life staying positive and focusing on a happy life being sober. For Example: Those with a more mindset to stay positive may become more receptive to treatment. They are willing to open up and heal for the addiction. Those who are more positive seem to take advantage of all tools and resources for a successful and healthy recovery.
