Joy is a natural state. In recovery, it may feel like a distant state you cannot even get on an airplane and fly to if you tried. Feeling joy seems elusive sometimes, especially early on when your brain is foggy and your body is still shaking off the remnants of addiction. Even in the best moments, our minds and bodies deal with lots of sensory input and experiences everyday that can steal joy in recovery. Learning to find it from within can transform the recovery journey from the inside out.

Sound therapy is a form of vibrational medicine. It is often created with instruments such as tuning forks, singing bowls, gongs, and other similar tools. The vibrations alone can be healing to the body and mind.
Change Your Pillow
Replacing your pillow can give you a fresh boost. When you sleep, you release stress. Your pillow and mattress are two places you discharge negative energy and traps it inside. Getting new pillows and mattresses are recommended every so often to shed old energy and freshen things up.
Exercise the Olfactories
Using essential oils in a diffuser or on the skin can help a person relax and feel more balanced. Using scents is a quick way to activate the heart, liver, and intestinal tract. The olfactory system may need a boost after using substances because sometimes it is impacted negatively by drugs and alcohol. The use of oils can provide a relaxing scent for recovery.
