Traveling is usually thought of as a time to let go, eat all you want and let go with alcohol but what we don’t hear much is that it can also be an amazing therapy for those working on their recovery. If you are already in a good state of mind Exploring will help you to stay sober.
It can be a time to improve your health and work on yourself. Plus, if you do it on your own, it can also be an amazing opportunity to get to know yourself better. Below you will find information about things to do and what activities are best for all of those looking to use traveling as a therapy for staying sober and overcoming addictions.
Ways Traveling Can Help You Stay Sober
1. Yoga or Meditation Retreats
Meditation and Yoga Retreats are so awesome for those looking to improve their body and mental estate. They are also extremely relaxing and allow you to have a great time, enjoy beautiful places abroad while you work on yourself. I highly recommend these not only for recovering addicts.
2. Hiking and Camping
Having contact with nature is also a great way to keep unwanted thoughts and behaviors away. Especially when you commit to a longer hike that will also include sleeping in the wild. Some people resist the idea, but trust me, experiencing nature, pushing yourself physically and spending a lot of quiet time is an amazing kind of therapy.
Plus it ends up feeling really fulfilling.
3. Spa Vacation
If you are looking into something more luxurious, going to a spa and spending a few days pampering yourself is also highly recommended. Especially if it is in a foreign country with cool views and offers some sore of local traditional treatments.
4. Cultural Tours
Staying in a city might be one of the most challenging options but if you are already in a strong state of mind you can really benefit this option. Cities usually offer amazing options for travelers like going to see plays at a theater, cooking classes, monuments that allow people in, self-guided tours along with landmarks and city tours on board of a bus.
They are extremely entertaining and will allow you to keep your mind away from thoughts that you don’t want to be having.
