SURROUNDING YOURSELF WITH POSITIVITY: KEY TO RECOVERY
- February 29, 2020
Developing a network of recovery partners during recovery can help you find people who will not only support you but provide accountability when you need it and positive encouragement. Finding people who have been through the same experiences in you, perhaps having similar substance use disorder stories as you, can be a great first step towards creating a network of positive reinforcement. Your recovery network has a huge impact on your journey. The stronger your support system, the more resilient you’ll be when it comes to dealing with bumps in the road.
When you’re looking for positive people, remember these can be acquaintances, friends or even family members – if you already have positive role models in your social sphere already you’ll find it easy to draw from them. Positive people tend to be drawn to positive activities, so if you’re feeling a lack of positivity in your current network try finding and taking part in positive activities in order to meet new people. Activities might include:
- Positive social gatherings (brunches, book clubs, museum tours, etc.)
- Any activity aiding in personal growth or volunteering
- Activities that allow you to get exercise (fitness club, gym, etc.)
As humans, we’re natural copiers of one another. When we’re surrounded by negative circumstances we tend to look around at other people for cues on how to best navigate our way through challenges and adversity in our lives. All of this means that finding people with the traits you want to see in yourself not only helps recovery, but it can also help you transform yourself.
While approaching your recovery positively is not the only factor influencing the outcome of your efforts, it can determine the amount of success you’ll see from various residential programs and sober living homes. The good news with all of this is you’re never alone. When evaluating the extent of professional help you need coupled with positive activities we can help you.
