Emotional Sobriety


What is emotional sobriety, and why is it so important in recovery?

It’s been called the “next frontier” of recovery by Bill Wilson, and simply put, is being able to experience, confront, and accept all emotions, even the painful ones.

It doesn’t mean “turning a frown upside down”, but it does mean having a healthy relationship with emotions and using positive strategies to cope with those that are negative.

And why is this so important? Simply put – potential relapse. Or a life wondering what it is that we’re missing in our recovery.

When we are unable to tackle what life throws at us, we regress and start taking on old stories and old habits. Emotional sobriety gives us the foundation to move through life no matter what happens.

Emotional sobriety is about integration, sitting full face into the uncomfortable feelings that come at us, not distracting ourselves from the powerful growth that happens when we are in strong emotional health.

So how do we start this process?

I will be talking about that in my FREE one hour presentation webinar this Thursday, December 12th at 2:30 PM EST.

Some of the topics covered in this webinar:

🕺Ways to connect deeper to yourself so that you can show up to life with less anxiety

😴The importance of overcoming shame, guilt, anger and fear so that you can sleep better at night

💔Avoiding spiritual bypassing and other distractions so that you can tackle feelings head on

🧘‍♀️The mind-body-spirit connection and its role in a strong sobriety

This is going to be education and powerful!

And afterwards, you will get a copy of worksheets and some of the information from the webinar for free as well.

So join me on Thursday, December 12th at 2:30 EST – I would love to see you there!

    If only one can accept that life is not a rose garden without blaming or feeling small. Troubles and trials can break us or make us.
