Take are of yourself: Self-care is key for optimal recovery. Be sure to eat healthily, exercise regularly and get enough restful sleep – take the time for yourself and enjoy yourself.
Create support systems: Surround yourself with positive, encouraging people. Family, friends, or anyone involved in recovery can provide invaluable help and support that can enable you to overcome obstacles and stay on the road to recovery.
Stay positive: Welfare recovery is not a destination; rather it is a journey. Allow yourself some leeway when mistakes arise; stay focused on your goals and remain optimistic; each day presents new opportunities to move forward in your journey.
