Simple Steps for Soothing Self-Care

Some people say self-care is the foundation of addiction recovery. If you’ve completed rehab and/or an aftercare program, you’re likely familiar with the role self-care plays in your recovery and long-term sobriety.   

You may even know that self-care goes beyond just bathing, eating right, and exercising. It means nurturing your physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and financial health. And it doesn’t have to be time-consuming or costly. 

Here are just a few self-care tips you can put into action today: 
  • Snuggle up with your loved one.
  • Sit down with a good book; perhaps one that inspires you to become a better person.
  • Sip a warm cup of herbal tea.
  • Begin your mornings with a few yoga poses to clear your mind and energize your body.
  • Head outdoors and soak up the sun as you take a long, relaxing stroll.
  • Sit in a bubble bath and tune out to your favorite tunes.
  • Organize your desk and tackle one pile of paperwork or bills.
  • Light a scented candle and get creative by coloring, drawing, painting, or writing poetry.
  • Give yourself a facial or pedicure.
  • Wake up early and watch the sunrise.
  • Pop some popcorn and cue your favorite Netflix series.
  • Pour yourself a tall glass of water infused with cucumber or lemon.
  • Sit and focus on your breathing. Close your eyes and let go of your worries.
  • Make a list of long-term recovery goals. 
  • Jot down five things you’re grateful for. 
  • Set the alarm a few minutes early and stay in bed and meditate.
