Recovery is intimidating for many reasons, especially if you are new to it. You need to focus on your health while adjusting back to life. Making ends meet until you find your first job opportunity post-recovery is necessary, but shouldn't add stress. There are plenty of options available for you, all of which can be fulfilling.
Mindfulness is more than a 1-hour meditation class or a 10-minute guided recording on an app. It's a way of life, a moral compass and a change in perspective that can improve all aspects of your life including relationships, self-awareness, attunement to the environment and the ability to understand and regulate your internal experience.
