Taking good care of yourself is critical to the success of your recovery process. People in recovery realize that their physical, spiritual, and emotional health are connected and that supporting each other helps others. Taking care of all your aspects will increase your chances of staying well. Spending time with positive, loving people you care about and trust can relieve stress, improve your mood, and improve the way you feel overall.
Taking care of your body emotionally, physically, and mentally by creating joy and satisfaction is an important part of living with or without a mental health condition.
