Nat’s Super Bowl Relapse & What is self care, and why is it important?

RMA-Episode 75 Show Notes:


What is self care, and why is it important? Building off this week’s Monksters Speak, Mike and Nat do a deep dive into the concept of self care and talk about how getting your life in balance is important to a healthy and successful recovery. Making sure you set aside the time for self-care is an important tool for attaining and maintaining that balance. But what is it really? Sometimes self-care looks like going out for a run and eating a salad, but other times it’s sitting on the sofa eating ice-cream and binging Netflix. The only way you can discover which one you really need is to develop some self-awareness. How do we do that? They guys have some ideas…

PLUS, Nat regals us with his classic superbowl relapse story,  Recovery in the News looks at deep brain stimulation, and bigfoot returns to the Week in Weird, on an alkaline water soaked, alpha wave generating, essential oil infused episode of Recovery in the Middle Ages.
