PLANT-BASED NUTRITION FOR WELLBEING –CONFUSION or CONFIDENCE?
Vegan, vegetarian, and plant-based diets are buzzwords nowadays. There is so much, often very conflicting and contradictory, information in all sorts of media, including social media about the effects of our nutritional choices on our physical, mental and even emotional health and wellbeing in general.  Come to this talk for a bit of myth-busting and science, ideas and information. Bring your questions for the Q&A session at the end of the talk – I promise that it will be both useful and fun!

Together, in an informal, supportive environment, we’ll explore our personal histories with writing, discuss the various forms of writing available to us and play with a few simple writing prompts.  Everybody has the right to write, and this session will get you going whether you already have a personal writing habit or not.

National Recovery Month

#NationalRecoveryMonth

Last day of September so here’s the final recovery post from Jayne.

I thought i’d share some of the tips and techniques I’ve used and found helpful.

Distraction: Go for a walk, read, have a bath or shower, watch something you enjoy. Call a friend who supports your recovery.

Stay in the present: Yesterday is history tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift. Don’t see giving up drugs/alcohol as being for a lifetime, take it one day at a time. In my early days the thought of not being able to use my drug of choice ever again was really overwhelming, The thought of getting through more then a day was huge, do it minute by minute, hour by hour if necessary. believe me it all adds up.

Mirror exercise: I found this extremely hard at first but it improved with practice.
Each morning look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself “I am a worthwhile human being, I deserve to be here, I am OK, I am good enough.

Change how you think of abstinence and and the way you speak to yourself.
Instead of saying I Can’t take a drink/drug say I am choosing not to take a drink/drug
Today i am Choosing to stay clean and sober.
Try not to make sweeping statements or make promises such as I will never take drugs or drink again.

Identify what your trigger times are and plan alternatives.

Make a list of what your strengths and good points are: eg,
I am a good friend
I am a good cook
I like my hair
I like the way i dress
I am good at writing poetry

Set a goal each day, even if at the beginning its as small as today I will get up and shower.

Be honest with friends and family about what you are doing.

Stick with others in recovery; Online recovery forums, recovery based social groups, mutual aid support, 12 step meetings.

Write a goodbye letter to your addiction. I found this particularly powerful and it provoked strong emotions so although i highly recommend this exercise, I’d strongly suggest sharing it with or talking it through with someone you trust.
