Feeling stuck in a rut? Sometimes we just know: it’s time for a change.
Maybe you’re feeling complacent about a bad habit you’ve been trying to kick, or a task you’ve been meaning to make time for. We’ve all been there – wherever and wherever “there” is for you, something’s not quite serving you as it should.
But it’s not always easy to figure out exactly what to do differently. We want to make our lives better in some way, but can get tripped up at the first step: where to begin? There are so many different practices, articles, and self-help tips out there to sift through… it’s enough to keep anyone stuck!
Don’t worry: WEconnect has a few ideas to add some spark to your dusty old dailies!
1) Make time to reflect
Noticing our behavior patterns is the first step toward understanding them. This can also be a good step for taking inventory of the ways you’d like to show up for yourself! Try taking some time to meditate, journal, worship, stretch, or simply sit outside awhile with yourself. Reflect on your day, an online meeting topic, or whatever’s going on with you. Be intentional about carving out this time, even if it’s just 10 minutes! You can add it as a daily recurring routine in the WEconnect app to get reminders.
Also – did you know you can also make notes in your routines in the app? It’s great for jotting down a quick thought that pops up during it, and can help you identify what you want to work on. Try it out!
2) Go to a meeting
WEconnect adds new community meetings on the regular!
Not only do we host our general all recovery meetings that are open to anyone, but we also offer specialty online support meetings. Currently, we offer a Grief Support meeting, an LGBTQIA2+ meeting, a Family & Loved Ones meeting, a Women’s meeting, a Harm Reduction meeting, and a Men’s meeting.
Why not try going to a new meeting you’ve never been to? Who knows, it might just become your new favorite routine.
3) Try Peer support!
