Benefits of Spending Time in Nature for People in Recovery

Spending time in nature during recovery provides a wealth of physical and emotional health benefits. Studies have shown that time in nature can promote:

  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Stress reduction
  • Decreases depression and anxiety
  • Promotes healthy physical activities
  • Provides an opportunity to meet new people
  • Increases Vitamin D absorption
  • Spending time in nature can improve cognitive functioning

Learning to Have Fun Again Without Drugs or Alcohol

Adjusting to life in recovery can be a difficult transition because drugs and alcohol can make us feel uninhibited or more social, however, now is the time to explore your interests and find new hobbies without the complicated side effects that occur when we attempt to self medicate! Be patient with yourself as you learn to live a sober life, and remember why you started this journey in the first place.
