When a person sobers up, there can sometimes be the conception that there won’t be anything fun to do anymore. While in the disease, there were many reasons to use and that meant every situation and every excuse one can think of. This is just how the mind had been set to function, if you can really call that functioning. Once sobering up, there are many sober things to do including a good spiritual retreat.
There are many reasons why these getaways can be life-changing. There will be lots of yoga and meditation on the schedule. Some might find this tedious at first, but once the person can begin to quiet the mind, serenity and peace will become evident. Without the distractions of daily life, it’s a good opportunity to take it all in and get spiritual. Finding who it is on the inside will give people more self-esteem and guidance from a higher power.
Retreats are great places to detoxify the body from toxins we might ingest through foods and other sources. Retreats will often have food supplied for its guest and this means it will probably be healthy. This is fantastic because there are chefs doing all of the cooking! It’s also an opportunity to learn about healthy foods that could become a staple back home.
Retreats are also an opportunity to detoxify from the digital world. Signing onto facebook and other social media outlets can almost become second nature at times. Making it a point to put the smartphone away can be stressful at first, but it’s amazing how the mind will recover from its annoying cellular friend.
Lastly, being around likeminded people is a nice way to connect. Many people make lifelong friends while in retreats. There are options to travel to beautiful islands and countries around the world. It’s a once in a lifetime experience and one of the best gifts someone in recovery could be given. Once people can live in gratitude, life’s troubles will slip away. Life will never be perfect for anyone, but becoming in tune with the body mind and soul in such an amazing environment, will forever give life a new meaning. Now go get your zen on!
