Setting New Year’s Resolutions While in Recovery

Setting Resolutions for Recovery

When embarking on your journey toward recovery and wellness, setting goals can help to keep you on track toward your goal of living a sober lifestyle. With the New Year among us, why not take this as an opportunity to start fresh and set your intentions for the year ahead?

The Role of Setting Goals in Recovery

When choosing to work toward a life of sobriety, many people find that they have a lot more time, money, and energy to put toward the things that they’d like to accomplish in life when cutting out drugs and alcohol.

This provides an opportunity for you to continue moving forward and becoming the person you want to be, despite your struggles with substance abuse. Setting achievable goals not only inspires you to continue to improve but helps to remind you how much you can achieve while maintaining a sober lifestyle.

Tips for Setting S.M.A.R.T. Goals

When setting goals, it is important to set smaller, attainable goals that you can keep track of. In order to do this, remember to make sure your goals are S.M.A.R.T.:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable
  • Relevant
  • Time-bound

Examples of Resolutions

When setting your resolutions and intentions for the year ahead, think about the general area where you would like to invest your time, energy, and efforts. For many people, this may include:

  • Learning a new skill.
  • Deepening your spiritual connection.
  • Focusing on building meaningful relationships.
  • Improving your health and wellness.
  • Improving your financial situation.

Once you’ve decided on the general area where you’d like to improve, set smaller goals throughout the year that help you to move toward that goal.
