When you’re in recovery, one of the most important things you can do is take care of yourself and that can mean different things for everyone. For some, self-care means a weekly bath; for others it may be attending a peer meeting, or meeting with a sponsor.

But whatever you do, self-care shouldn’t be something that’s only reserved for one day a week. That’s why we love this post from The Temper (a recovery website started by Holly Whitaker) that’s full of great ideas for everyday self-care.

A few of our favorites are taking time to exercise, making yourself a meal and reading a good book. Want to see some more? Check out the post over at The Temper! 

And of course, don’t forget to check out In The Rooms to attend a meeting anytime, anywhere.

  1. Happy new year hope everyone enjoyed their evening. I try every day to make things better for everyone. It’s been five years since I had a drink. I need to put myself first

    It’s very easy to become codependent when drugs are involved so much more difficult to help your partner wwhen you have no control over the amounts of drugs available to you

    There is the lack of desire within me to continue the path of destruction of my body. I chose me so that I can become a blessing to family and friends. It is the hardest step I’ve had to make and I’m asking for your prayers thank you
