Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes
Unplugging from our devices, developing a sense of healing community, physical exercise, immersing oneself in nature–those things alone can be more therapeutic than sitting in a therapist’s chair and venting about your life.
Nature immersion is an evidence-based intervention. Having adventures in the magical beauty of Maui–hiking up Haleakala, diving off of a waterfall, enjoying a majestic sunset–all have therapeutic value. Especially for people that have fallen into toxic and self-destructive and addictive habits.
Thus, instead of the archetype of the villain or the victim that is so often unconsciously adopted by the addict, the person suffering from addiction can now begin to see the adversity of their addiction as an opportunity to be the archetype of “the hero”. When that occurs, unimaginable magic–including sobriety–can happen!
