Call two different same gender people in the program each week that are not your sponsor in order to expand your recovery support network.
Make time for fun. Tap into things you enjoyed when you were younger or try something you never took the time to explore.
Pay attention to self-care basics. Take 5 minutes a day to focus on deep breathing, drink plenty of water, eat nutritious regular meals and develop regular sleeping patterns.
Refrain from new romantic relationships in the first year of sobriety. Early sobriety is a time to focus on you. Doing this will allow you to be a better partner to someone in the future.
