How does a fiercely independent woman practice self-care?

Journaling has a definite place in self-care. In Jeanna’s new course, “Simply Sober Self-Care,” she introduces journaling as a means of self-care along with numerous other activities you can do to take care of yourself during recovery.

During the creation of this course, Jeanna realized that not only do we not practice proper self-care while in active addiction, often our lack of certain self-care activities prior to addiction was a major contribution. A lack of skills like setting boundaries and practicing spirituality often led to the phrase, “I need a drink.”
