Cultivating Happiness

 sober happy womanAt Practical Recovery, we believe in self-empowerment and creating a life that is enjoyable, fulfilling and healthy. Stop and think: What are some things that make you happy? Taking small steps like the ones below will add to your quality of life.

  • Express gratitude
  • Find meaning in your work
  • Take risks
  • Include small bursts of joy in your day to help you refuel (i.e. listen to your favorite song, think of someone you love, eat a small piece of chocolate)
  • Embrace silence
  • Volunteer and expect nothing in return
  • Invest in your body (sleep, exercise, nutrition)
  • Avoid comparing yourself to others
