Before you start reading... There has never been a time when our community and content was needed more. Unlike other sites, we don't publish sponsored content or share affiliate links. We also don’t run ads on our site and don’t have any paywalls in front of our content–-anyone can access all of it for free.

This means we rely on donations from our community (people like YOU!) to keep our site running. We want to be here to support you all through this pandemic and beyond, which is why we are asking you to consider donating whatever you are able.

A single (or monthly) donation of just $5 will make a HUGE difference and will help keep our nonprofit running so we can continue offering peer support for mental health through our content.



Entering into recovery can be overwhelming to say the least – there are so many things that need to be worked on from bad habits to suppressed emotions to poor coping techniques, and then, of course, there is the food! The trouble is, when we feel overwhelmed we are more likely to procrastinate or to give up all together.

In this video I suggest a better approach – rather than looking at your recovery as a HUGE task that needs to be dealt with all at once, why not break it down – like when you are cleaning your apartment – and approach it ‘one room at a time’. This way your recovery will seem far more manageable and you can celebrate every progression (no matter how small) as you take on one task at a time.
