Volunteering - A Great Way to Get Out of Your Head this Holiday

This year many of us are plagued with negativity and anxiety due to the various conflicts and problems in our society. For those in recovery, this is a particularly dangerous mindset to have, as stress is a major trigger for relapse as well as other destructive behaviors we are prone to. Therefore, it is important for those living in sobriety to be proactive and get out of our heads, restoring our focus on the present moment and the positive aspects of our lives. One great way to accomplish this goal is through volunteer work - helping others in your community during these times of need.
