What is Lifeskills Education?
Life skills education teaches you the skills you need or want for your best possible daily life. These skills affect your quality of life and help you gain greater productivity to reach your personal goals.
Getting through rehab is a big step forward for your future. Completing your program gives you a fresh start and enables you to start using the skills you learn during life skills education sessions.
In life skills education, you learn basic skills like cooking, cleaning, budgeting, grocery shopping, and building relationships. Additionally, you also learn how to get and maintain a job to thrive on your own.
What is the Biggest Threat to Recovery?
Most people in rehab answer this question with picking up a drink or using drugs. However, those do not represent your biggest threats. Those are consequences of what trips you up most from living a sober life.
To truly live sober, you need solid life skills. Therefore, this starts with taking good care of yourself and maintaining your daily responsibilities. Without life skills, you quickly find yourself overwhelmed by daily life. As a result, this brings back your drug cravings and desire to numb your feelings.
Importance of a Daily Routine
One of the most important life skills is maintaining a daily routine. Structure helps you stay productive and move forward toward your life goals while being able to see progress in a good routine and in your overall well being. Together, these benefits of a daily routine keep you happy, content, and strong.
Healthy Activities and Socialization
Having healthy hobbies is important for life fulfillment. Your self-esteem comes from your own ability to represent yourself well, whether face-to-face, in conversation, or through your personal talents and interests. Whether you decide to pursue active reading, music, cooking, or other hobbies, these activities will open you to a new social circle.
However, social wellness starts with communication skills. You need to mend old relationships and fix or shelve negative influences. When you communicate well, you also welcome quality people into your life, instead of keeping everyone at arm’s length. As a result, this allows people to get to know and respect you.
Friendships fill an important void that once led to substance abuse. Therefore, you fill your time and the inner void with people who care about you.
