Make a list of low-cost or free leisure activities you’d like to try or learn more about.
Are there some healthy habits you want to change? List these changes.
Find out what activities and events are offered where you live, or nearby.
When you find out what activities are available, list the activities you want to get more information about. Next, list the activities you want to get involved in.
Organizing your time is important for your recovery. Make a weekly plan of activities and plan ahead of time. Being organized and planning will make it easier for you to get used to a new, healthier lifestyle.
