You hear about people living their best lives in sobriety all the time, but your head is barely floating above water. You’re just getting by trying to acclimate to this new life, that you don’t even know how it’s possible. Well, how about a holistic sober glow up plan to become the better, improved version of yourself?
This is broken down into three steps; mind, body, & soul. It’s simple. It also takes time. However, if you commit to glowing up and making inner work the new sexy, well, you’re guaranteed to succeed.
We’re going to keep this short and sweet today so that you can get started on your glow up.
Ask yourself the following three questions:
- How can I feed my mind?
- How can I care for my body?
- How can I nourish my soul?
Below are some suggestions to reconnect you with your mind, body, & soul. Of course, you do what works for you. But my recommendation is at least one thing from each list everyday for at least 15 minutes.
If time is an issue, dedicate only what you can. There’s no reason to burn yourself out or give up because of unwritten rules.
One more thing- you got this. You really do. There is an infinite amount of potential within you- you just haven’t seen it yet. But you will. Now, go get your glow on and become everything you’ve ever hoped you could be.
- Learn something new
- Create a sober board (and actively work towards your goals)
- Practice gratitude
- Take walks
- Regulate your nervous system
- Do yoga/exercise
- Drink water
- Eat more greens
- Be gentle
- Listen to the inner voice
- Declutter your mind
- Engage in hobbies
- Slow down
HOW TO SUCCEED:
WHAT’S YOUR PURPOSE?
You’re not going to be motivated everyday. There will be times when it’s going to feel like it’s too much of a sacrifice to commit to your glow up. But, if you have a clear intention of why you’re doing this for yourself, it will overpower the self-sabotage.
If you can only commit 15 minutes a day, then that’s what you can give of yourself. You don’t have to devote an hour a day everyday if you can’t. Don’t give more than what you’re able to. You’ll wind up resenting yourself and this.
It’s easier to achieve burn out than it is to achieve a goal. Ease your way into this. Just because you can’t feel internal progress or see any physical changes, it doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. It is. Time is your ally. Work with it.
