Bored? Get creative!
If you are new to recovery and feel a little bored, remember that you are still in charge of your entertainment, you just need to find a healthier way to entertain yourself. What a novel idea! Create something! Flat or multi-dimensional, creating reaches a part of you that you didn't know about- it distracts you from thoughts and worries. It is like a meditation. Stand up, look around you and think right now, what can I create? I can draw on my note pad, I can bake a cake, I can cook an exotic dish or a plain meal. I can plant flowers, clean my house all the way to the rafters, I can tie all my clothes that I don't want into a giant knot and drop them off at Goodwill. I know you will think of something to create. Make recovery real and tangible!
