Finding purpose and taking control of your life in the New Year

“Not feeling is no replacement for reality. Your problems today are still your problems tomorrow” ― Larry Michael Dredla

The early months of a New Year is the perfect time to talk about the importance of finding purpose in your life.

Purpose as a principal concept offers order and structure and helps us take control and understand our behaviour.

Once recognised, purpose can be used to help manage our decision-making and help guide us in the right direction.

Making sobriety your first ‘goal’ purpose is quite understandable. It remains the most important purpose for all of us.

Making the healthy choice to lead a sober life is the right decision for you and your family. 

Gradually an addict in recovery realises that the previous goals and wants which are now secondary to the sobriety goal become more obtainable and accessible as the chaos that follows addiction falls away.

Knowing that poor mental health and addiction go hand-in-hand helps to remind you that the pursuit of sound mental health along with a balanced lifestyle and positive influences plays an important role in you staying clean and on the road to recovery.

Asking yourself important life questions may be difficult at first as some of the answers needed are unknown.

But these questions can also act as a good relapse preventive measure when it comes to recapping just how devastating the disease of addiction was for you, and your loved ones.

Trying to identify what you want most from your life or what spiritual principles are important to you will help you identify better choices for your future.

At Step Away drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre we offer guidance and information to the public, we welcome anyone whose is struggling with or is affected by someone suffering from the disease of alcohol and drug addiction.

Know that we can help you rebuild a purpose for your life.
