Tools for Recovery

Be Inspired..!!

As you probably know, sometimes events from the past have a mind of their own. Memories keep recirculating when all you want is for them to disappear. You are way more emotionally reactive than you know is good for you. And you are limited by distrust, neediness, and a stunted view of what is possible for you.

Recovery isn’t just about stopping addictive patterns. It’s about finding ways to re-engage in life in healthy and fulfilling ways. If you know your past is still nipping at your heels, here are a few tips which can help :
