Basics of Recovery

No matter where we are in our recovery, some days (or weeks, etc) we struggle.  Life throws us challenges that we did not expect or we are under more stress or some other scenario.  No matter what it is, we find ourselves tempted back into our behaviors and disorders.  But instead we must do what seems the impossible, as always, and fight.

During times of struggle, I find the best way for me to fight back is to go back to the basics of recovery.  The basics of recovery are different for everyone because everyone is different.  However, the same general rules apply.  The basics include (but at not limited to): emotional, physical, food, and spiritually.


The next time you are struggling, try going back to the basics of your recovery.  What does that look like for you?  Try mapping out your basics before you struggle so that if you do you are prepared.  Remember: take good self-care always!
