So many things in life can make addiction recovery challenging. We recognize those struggles at Avalon Malibu and strive to help you through them. One of the most common problems we see people have is finding motivation. If you struggle with motivation, you’re not alone. Fortunately, there are things that you can do to remedy this problem.
Let’s discuss some things that you can do when you’re struggling to find the motivation to keep going in recovery. Remember that everyone has a different recovery journey. What works for one person may not work for another. This is why we offer lots of options.
Thinking about the past can be incredibly motivating for some people. Remembering how far you’ve come can help you continue as you recognize all the progress you’ve made. Keeping a journal is a great way to encourage reflection and remember difficult moments you persevered through.
Visualizing the future helps you remember why recovery is so important. How will your life be different further down the road of recovery? The answer to this question can remind you why you chose recovery in the first place. At Avalon Malibu, we believe that visualization can be a powerful tool, especially when you have a hard time finding motivation.
Sometimes finding motivation is as simple as asking for it. Reaching out to friends to let them know that you’ve been struggling can be an excellent way to hold yourself accountable. You can ask your loved ones to check in on you periodically and remind you why recovery is so important.
Letting others in your life know about your recovery and progress can also strengthen your relationships. It may be a great reminder of why you chose recovery in the first place. Connecting with others can provide motivation and strength. Don’t be afraid to reach out to important people in your life and share your struggles and triumphs.
