Ever since I got clean about a year ago, I've been struggling with day to day life, from time to time. Recently, it has gotten even worse, problems like doing my homework on a regular basis and waking up on time have been consistent battles. Depression has lingered in and out of my life, I haven't known how I'm going to feel from one moment to the next. I'm one of those people who needs a manual for life. The 12 steps provide for relief from this malody, but only if I work them. I would often hear in meetings, "Do something for your recovery everyday," and I just kind of blew it off and thought to myself "That's what the beginners, and/or the idiots in recovery have to do to stay clean." Well, it's not only about staying clean, it's about feeling productive and enjoying life. So I have finally decided to take this seriously. For the past 4 days, I have been doing 1 hour of homework Something for my recovery An outdoor/physical activity 20-60 minutes of housecleaning Every day So far, it's been working wonders and I feel much better about life. For any of you who suffer from inconsitency, and have trouble balancing life, I suggest you adopt something similar. Just thought I'd share with OT.
