4 Steps for Sober Living

Congrats! If you’re reading this, you’ve likely reached the point where you’re ready to embrace a new life of sobriety. Though it might sounds silly, an important step in supporting your new healthy lifestyle is making a schedule and organizing your environment. This way, you’ll have more time and energy to devote to your overall health and long-term recovery goals. Get started with these steps:

  1. Make organization a priority. Look around your home and begin to slowly clear the clutter. This is your sanctuary, where you rest, rejuvenate and enjoy solitude. You can’t do that if the place is a mess.
  2. Do the “trash-bag tango.” Take 10 minutes each day to walk around your home and fill one bag with trash and one bag with items to donate. Try it every day for a month, and you’ll likely be pleased with the results.
  3. Make a schedule and to-do list. A weekly schedule can help you to restore or establish a normal routine, which is incredibly helpful in the early stages of recovery. On your to-do list could be items like doing the laundry on Monday after work or changing the bedding each Sunday morning, or even getting the car washed. Make sure to prioritize the list so it’s easier to tackle.
  4. Use that positive momentum. It may seem simple but tasks like making your bed every morning can help you harness the power of momentum. Each time you cross things off your daily to-do list, you’ll boost your self-confidence and take one step closer to your long-term sobriety goals.
