Get Rid of the Holiday Mentality

The holidays are an incredible time and we love all the time that we get to spend with friends and family, not to mention all the delicious food too! However, during the holidays sometimes we tend to forget to take care of ourselves. With all the parties and gatherings, it’s easy to forget to exercise, make a home cooked meal, or even get your recommended 8 hours of sleep in. Start prioritizing yourself again this January. 

Self care is more than just drawing yourself a bubble bath or lighting a candle. In fact, it can come in all forms but start by prioritizing your needs. This can be anything from your needs within relationships, at work, or even your relationship with alcohol. Figure out what things you’re needing from these relationships and what you don’t need. Making a list can be helpful so you can see that visual component in front of you. 

Your relationship with alcohol may be something that you don’t like to bring up. However, it’s important that you explore that relationship and become more self aware so that you understand how to live soberly.

Focus On The Benefits

It can be easy to get overwhelmed when it comes to new year’s resolutions. One way to help make sure that you’re actually accomplishing these is to focus on the benefits that this resolution offers. For example, when you make going sober your new year’s resolution think of all the benefits that resolution is going to bring you. While every person is different these are some of the ways that living a life that is alcohol-free can benefit you. 

  • Improved physical health
  • Improved mental health
  • Improved relationships 
  • Increased productivity 
  • Increased happiness 
  • And more! 

No matter what your main motivation is, keep that close to you. Remember, when you have a clear mind and ability to focus, you’ll be able to fully embrace life and everything around you. 

Make A Plan

Making a plan is essential to following through with anything. Benjamin Franklin once said, “If you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail”. This couldn’t be more true. If you’re planning to live a sober lifestyle, make sure that you’re planning a treatment program that actually works. Did you know that it takes the average person about six attempts when using traditional treatment methods before they actually stop drinking for good? With Go Sober, it only takes one time for you to actually rid alcohol from your life forever! Make a plan to get and stay sober this year. 

Accept Recognition

As we mentioned earlier, you may be reluctant to discuss your journey with alcohol to others but once you’ve completed your treatment and alcohol rehab at Go Sober, that should be something to celebrate! It’s perfectly okay to be proud of yourself for keeping your resolution to stop drinking alcohol. Don’t be afraid to share that with others, accept praise, and even reward yourself for your accomplishments! Get yourself that new pair of running shoes or treat yourself to your favorite meal out. Whatever the reward, big or small, you deserve it! Who knows, you may even inspire others around you.
