Welcome to the world of AA, where sobriety and sanity are the ultimate tag team. However, staying sober is only half the battle. Maintaining our mental health is equally important. Luckily, AA has some amusing mental health hacks up its sleeve to help us stay sane and sober.
Sobriety and Sanity: The Ultimate Tag Team of AA Hacks
When it comes to staying sober and sane, AA’s tag team of hacks is unbeatable. The first maneuver is to keep a journal. Putting our thoughts and feelings on paper can help us process them and prevent us from bottling them up inside. Plus, we get to feel like a teenager again, scribbling in our diary.
The second hack is the “One Day at a Time” approach. We all know that the future can be daunting, and the past can be painful. By focusing on the present moment, we can avoid getting overwhelmed by what could be or what has been. Plus, we get to sound like a wise sage every time we say it.
Finally, reaching out to a sponsor or fellow member is a great way to stay sane and sober. Sometimes we need an objective opinion or someone to listen to us without judgment. Plus, we get to make new friends and have someone to call when we feel like we’re about to lose it.
Staying Sane and Sober with AA’s Mental Health Maneuvers
AA has some mental health maneuvers that can help us stay sober and sane, even on the craziest of days. The first is to practice self-care. Eating well, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly can help us feel better physically and mentally. Plus, we get to indulge in our favorite hobbies, like obsessively watching cat videos.
The second is to practice mindfulness. Focusing on the present moment and being aware of our thoughts and feelings can help us stay grounded and avoid getting caught up in our emotions. Plus, we get to sound like a cool Zen master every time we talk about it.
Finally, relaxation techniques like deep breathing, meditation, and yoga can help us reduce stress and anxiety. Plus, we get to lie down and nap in public without anyone judging us.
Staying sober and sane can be a challenge, but with AA’s mental health hacks, we can make it through even the toughest of times. So grab your journal, call your sponsor, and take a deep breath. We got this.
